I see a lot of people saying that the 7970 regular is better to get and just overclock it to the same as the ghz edition. Then I see other people say the ghz edition is better so it's pretty confusing. The price difference for a slight clock boost seems kind of steep so I was just curious what is the better buy. Looking at the Sapphire OC with Boost model. Thanks!

If you are willing to overclock (don't even need to raise voltage) then the normal 7970 is a no-brainer.

Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended.

I'm not opposed to overclocking, though I'd need to read up on doing it. I was more interested in if the ghz edition has better parts on the card like some reviews say.

It's likely that the GHz has a higher binned GPU and memory, but that's about it.
Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback

Don't even bother with the GHz edition. The R9 280X coming out soon replaces it anyways.
