Please motivate, also, no fanboysm here.
As i just said, i'd prefer just picking up the best one
Honestly your best bet is just to call the RMA department themselves and ask them what is the process you need to do to get everything shipped out and back to you and what is the estimated time for your specific location. It can vary location to location.
Contacting Customer Service: If you have any questions about the preceding RMA terms and conditions, please contact our Customer Service by calling 888-881-EVGA (3842) option 2. Customer Service can be reached 9AM - 5:30PM Pacific M-F.(This may be disadvantageous if youre in the wrong time zone)

As for performance, are you overclocking or not? What case are you putting this in? Are you going to go SLI? Are you going to be changing the bios and overvolting?
When it really comes down to it, you can always just buy the GPU with the best manufacturers warranty (for your area) -- and then buying a custom cooler like a Gelid GPU Cooler (2x120mm) and that will be a really huge improvement on temps and you can run them at lower rpm's compared to the smaller 82mm-90mm fans on the stock coolers.
Other than that, it just comes down to looks... the only 780 that EVGA excels in is the Classified version, other than that theyre just about very similar to the other non-Classified versions. The SC version is just an overclocked version that will probably be called an "OC" version on ASUS. About the same performance though, its like the difference of a couple mhz in clock speed that will be a couple frames but its not going to be mindblowing....
