I'd consider this the best choice for a 7970 http://goo.gl/kgzHe, XFX 7970 GHZ.
I stay away from Gigabyte and HIS because of their horrible RMA, and overall support.

And OP, sell your 2 550 ti's on the marketplace. thumb.gif

EDIT: Whoops, OP is Australian, So the 7970 you asked about is probably the best choice http://goo.gl/xzzUw, but its out of stock until December 2013 tongue.gif,
SO. I found you a better one in stock, hopefully is free shipping! http://goo.gl/qizas
