Assuming you're talking about the 7970 GHz, don't get one. Just buy a normal 7970. The GHz edition is just clocked higher out the box which you can do yourself, they are also normally voltage locked which means you can't overclock them much more than they already are.

MSI, ASUS, or Gigabyte would all be good choices.

I personally would go with gigabyte though.

the HIS HD 7970 iceq x2 ghz is a very good card. but its massive at 311 cm long. so OP check if it can fit in your case. dual 8 pin power connectors. more power phases than reference. better stability and lower temps for voltage overclocking. unlocked voltage. good cooler

he knows what hes talking about, i was in a similar situation a week ago, wound up getting the HIS 7970, put it underwater(it is reference pcb btw) and its sitting at 1250/1750 now with just a bit of voltage tweaking.

my vote goes to the HIS for its overclockability, reference design, and the stock cooler on it never went over 65c at 1200/1700 if you dont ever plan on watercooling it.
