After "solving" a problem i had i might need to choose a new video card in a while (20 days).

What i got:
ASUS Crosshair Formula IV
8GB Corsair XMS3 1600MHz

What do you propose for my next card???

I was thinking of either this: http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/EAH6970_DCII2DI4S2GD5/
or this: http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/EAH69702DI2S2GD5/

But i wanted to know more on what exactly is the differences on these two other then the cooling, slot requirement and number of supported displays... and also what do you guys think? which one of these two is better then the other?

Well you just pointed out the differences between the two yourself...if you want a card that runs cooler/quiter and allows more headroom for OCing, go with the dual fan card. If you want to save some money and don't care quite as much about those features, the reference card is perfectly fine.
