I plan on water-blocking it, and doing my own overclock so i don't care about the air cooler or pre-overclocked. Newegg has them for $600 with 8 free games, modern games i don't own too so it seems worth it. 7990 will be better then 290x im thinking for same or less money, and im tired of waiting, with the release date pushed to the last days of october.... and then who knows when you will find one in stock, and how long until water blocks are out. So bascily out of the

I dont have any experience with any of those cards. But based on brand I would pick Gigabyte for sure.

Just keep in mind that some brands are non-ref and need a special version of GPU water block like the powercolor.

Of the cards you listed I would go with the GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7990 GV-R799D5-6GD-B but I'd personally choose the SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7990 100350GAMESR. Sapphire is always my go-to brand for AMD cards. They always have great quality, cooling, performance, support, and OC'ing ability.

Ive heard Saphire is a great brand, but $100 more just doesn't seem worth it.

i went with the gigabyte, after reading online some more it seemed they have the best rma out of the listed. 7990 + 3 active minidp > dvi ($90 u kidding me.... got AMD certified ones to be sure) Ek Waterblock + extra 360mm rad to handle the added heat. I think i got the workings for some badass gamming!!!! (atleats i hope, ive spent almost $1800 today to upgrade from a dead z77 and outdated GTX 580 SLI)
