XFX hasn't been a player for Nvidia for years sadly. Then again, that sadly is a nice memory from the past. Their AMD cards are pretty **** unless you get a reference board.

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
ACX is their cooler. ACX and ACX 2.0 are pretty much the same crap. SC, SSC, FTW, FTW+, and Classified are all designations for the factory overclock. FTW+ and Classified boards usually have beefier VRMs compared to the rest. IIRC Hydrocopper cards have FTW+ boards with a water block. Kingpin Edition is well, the ridiculously awesome overly built boards with overclocker Kingpin's specs and name.

Wife has a Gigabyte (GTX660) and I can't complain about the reliability there too.
Gigabyte make great cards too, but unfortunately their CS and RMA suck.
