hi everyone

i'd like your opinion on these gpus and which one you'll eventually go for:

- Zotac gtx 670 amp! edition 2gb
- Asus gtx 670 direct cu II 2 gb
- Msi gtx 670 Power edition 2gb
- Gigabyte gtx 670 ( GV -N670OC- 2GB)

I would like to choose a brand solid, that doesn't have prob and that performs well.
I don't care about noise ( unless is to much ) and i don't want to oc the gpu untill is gonna be "old"

thanks guys

I own two of the Gigabytes. I've been lucky, since both overclock well. Stays very ccol as well. Although you mention you don't care about noise, those cards are damn near silent.

The Asus has a really nice cooler on it as well, but usually costs more than the other ones.

The above article describes the cards you listed. Truth be told, the article is what I based my purchase on.

Good luck!

Just going in from that link you posted, all are there and available except the Zotac AMP!

The MSI Power Edition is $380 and that's the one I would go for. It comes with fully customized components, a high factory overclock, and one of the most effective and quiet coolers you will find. The key is the Twin Frozr IV cooler, which maintain a very low operating temperature on the GPU. Cool temperatures allow for higher, more consistently maintained Turbo Boost clocks for overall higher performance. The fans on the Twin Frozr IV even run in reverse for a few seconds at bootup to remove any dust, pretty cool!

Really all of those models originally listed are all pretty much the top GTX 670's, so it will be hard to go wrong.

The gigabyte version is often the cheapest, and it's got the windforce 3x cooling wich is quite good. It's also pre-overclocked like the others. I would go for the Gigabyte.

what do you mean is pre pc ( the gigabyte )? From the pgus' official pages it states gigabyte have a core clock of 980 MHz, and the msi have 1019 MHz. Did i miss something?

The reference clock speed is 915 mhz. If you don't plan to overclock yourself, then go for one with a higher factory overclock. If you do plan to overclock on your own, then get whichever you want.
