Hello community, once more.

So, I've recently bought most of the parts for my new build, however, I'm having a hard time choosing between these 3 GPUs. I've seen alot of reviews on them but I still can't decide. I've heard that the MSI GTX 670 PE has a great cooling system and it's very powerful as well, however I've seen that the EVGA GTX 670 FTW has a higher boost clock (MSI-1079MHz; EVGA-1084MHz; Gigabyte-1058MHz). And, for about 20$ more, is it worth getting the Gigabyte 4GB version? I do plan on overclocking a bit further in the future (either card I get) to squeeze a little bit more of juice out of it.

Here's the system specs:
-CPU: Intel Core i5 3570 @ 3.40GHz (Boost up to 3.80GHz);
-RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance Performance 1600MHZ CL9;
-Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX;
-SSD: Samsung 120GB 840 Series 2.5 SATA III;
-HDD: Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black 7200rpm 64MB SATA III 3.5;
-Power Supply: Corsair CX750 750W;
-CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo.

Thank you for your time.

If its only 20$ more I would say get the 4GB version its 100% worth it and you can always overclock later with MSI afterburner, Thanks

The 2.3 version of MSI Afterburner has restored voltage unlocking to MSI cards if you were looking to do some overclocking.

Please get the power edition. I have the 7870 hawk with same form of gpu reactor and can say that it does work wonders. You will not be let down by the power edition.

The MSI PE/HAWK cooler works better on Nvidia's card than it does on AMD's for whatever reason. So yeah it's pretty beastly. Not exactly sure how it compares against Gigabyte's Windforce 3X though, which is really good as well.

While not on your list, I would personally go for the Asus GTX 670 DCUII, because it's the most silent high-end graphics card that I've never heard. No pun intended.

I'm still not sure on which one I should buy, I've seen alot of reviews too. Can you guys tell me, which one out of the 4 cards would give me better performance and still stay silent (keep in mind I'm going to overclock in the future)? This is a really tough decision...

This is a really tough decision because I've seen alot of reviews on the MSI card and it's very powerful and I've seen tons of reviews on the EVGA FTW card, which is a really powerful card as well and I don't really know if I'm going to get the same performance with the Gigabyte card or if it's worth to pay the extra 20$ for the 4GB version of the Gigabyte card.

Upon alot of research, I decided to go with the MSI GTX 670 PE due to staying very cool and being a beast. Thank you everyone for the help and for the replies!
