Few things to consider - the Gigabyte and ASUS models will blow the warm air into your case, so if your case does not have good ventilation, you may want to consider the EVGA model, since it will exhaust the warm air out of your case. The EVGA model also has 4GB of VRAM.

The Gigabyte model is clocked the highest, and from the reviews I've seen on the 770, the Windforce system gives you a ton of thermal headroom, which means you'll be hitting higher boost speeds for longer. It performed much better than the ASUS model on the 770. So in raw performance, the Gigabyte model will probably be the best. However, I would suggest you pick up a 4GB model, even though most people will tell you that 2GB is enough.

According to these graphs, the Windforce is, on average, 5.5% better than the stock 760, while the ASUS card is on average 3% faster. And they literally overclock the same. The ASUS card has a better percentage increase in raw clock rate because it starts at a lower base clock, but they both achieve an FPS that's identical when overclocked to their limit.

The ASUS card has an average clock rate of 1141, while the Gigabyte card has an average clock rate of 1196, and the maximum clock rate achieve by gigabyte is 52 MHz more than the ASUS model... Sooo.

Also, the cooling solutions on the 770 are the same as on the 760, and the 760 is just a binned version of the 770. So the comparisons do have parallels. Yes, the Gigabyte model is a little louder, which is to be expected considering it has 3 fans instead of 2. So, I'm not really sure where you can conclusively say that the ASUS model is better... Certainly it is a good model, but it would seem to me that the Gigabyte model is, if only slightly, better.
