I think it's pretty obvious what most of us will say.

Whats the difference between ACX and SC

http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GTX-GDDR5...dp/B00NT9UT3M/

There are 6 different 980s on this page and they don't look all that different except for the hydro copper model at ~250$ more

Yep but they're AMD distributors now. XFX and EVGA used to be the top dogs (BFG was up there too before they shutdown).

Since BFG closed, EVGA has been my "go to" supplier of graphics cards. I currently have the GTX680 FTW edition.

Wife has a Gigabyte (GTX660) and I can't complain about the reliability there too.

Used to always go XFX then I got a EVGA cheaper than the XFX and stayed with them, MSI is my #2 go to if EVGA doesn't have what I want in stock. Second MSI card and yet to have a issue there either.
