Trouble deciding between 4 different GTX 770 cards

**MODS - please delete duplicate post

Hey everyone. I'm looking to upgrade to a GTX 770 in the next month or so and am having a bit of a problem choosing between four different cards. The 4 cards:

I've compared the raw specs of the cards but am looking for any input from anyone who's actually used one or more of the cards above. Thanks for all your replies!

I've used both the windforce 670 and 760 and they have the same pcb I think.
It's an awesome cooler and they overclock well.

Can't speak for any of the other cards listed above, but if you want the fastest GTX 770 on earth I'd definitely suggest taking a look at the GTX 770 HOF:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162137&Tpk=galaxy%20gtx%20770%20hof

ABT just did a full review:

The GTX 770 GC is hard to beat too though at same price as reference:

Quick update: Just saw the 770 GC is $379 at Tiger:

Well if it helps, I bought a Zotac GTX 770 4GB (not the AMP) and with the stock fan that it comes with it's pretty decent, on a load with BF3 maxed out I was seeing temps around 60-70C on max settings, and it's pretty quiet (I didn't hear it even without my headphones on, though at least not over my water pump in a Fractal R4, which I have to put my ear against the case to hear anyway, lol), as far as performance I've been able to play Skyrim with about 20GB of extra hi-res mods flawlessly, now I don't have my waterblock for it yet, but it does say that it uses the reference 680 PCB, if your into watercooling at least...

I absolutely love my ASUS GTX 770 DCII. It's very quiet even on the higher fan speeds, and it looks like a hot rod. It was my first non-EVGA video card purchase in years and I'm really happy I switched.

if you don't mind red . . . i recommend this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127759

it will be out soon. but if you must get the 770, make sure you get the 4GB. BF3 MP 64 maxed alone just using 1080, AB registered 2140MB usage. BF4 1080 Ultra and 0 MSAA i got 1920MB usage with my 7950.

Go green! Zotac AMP! for me. You can use 680 full cover blocks on it also.
