Hello, I came across a few different brands as I was researching the new Nvidia Geforce GTX 760 2 GB (Graphics Card). The brands available for this card were Zotac, EVGA, Gigabyte, and MSI. All of these brands offer the same price... so my question is, which brand would have the best performance? (e.g. games such as Battlefield 4, Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite and Skyrim).

Thanks in advance!

They would have the same performance, but the question is how high can you OC them. They have the same chips, correct me if I'm wrong, the only difference is the cooling system.

Ah, I see. I guess I'll just go for the EVGA or MSI?

Yea, any will do. But I've heard and read that the Gigabyte windforce editions do well in terms of minimizing heat, thus you can further OC it.

Best solution

EVGA, MSI, Asus, Gigabyte are all great nVidia card makers. All offer very solid aftermarket coolers too.

EVGA uses "ACX"
MSI uses "Twin Frozr"
Gigabyte uses "Windforce 3"
Asus uses "DirectCU"

They'll all sell the same 760. Just different coolers and potentially overclocked to different levels.

Historically EVGA seems to have the gamers reputation. Asus and their DirectCU cards have had a great rack record. And MSI and their Twin Frozr has had good rep over time with overclocking. Gigabyte was once a budget video card maker. But they seem to have come into their own rite and are very popular now days.

I've owned several MSI cards (all stock/reference models) and never had a problem.

Using my first EVGA card now and really enjoying their new ACX cooler.
