I hear the 280x is just a rebrand, so would there be any significance of getting one or the other?

Probably a PCB and cooler redesign, but not much else. That being said, I probably would still get the 280X over a 7970 just for reason that the 280X is newer.

cool. Now I can crossfire my 7970 since the price will most likely drop.
