Better one of these GTX 760's?

Hey guys,

I'm going to the USA and bringing back a GPU to the UK because it'll work out cheaper for me. Which one of these is best would you say? There's a slight money difference which doesn't really matter, should I go for the 4GB EVGA or the tweakable Asus? Is one company more reliable than the other? I don't mind if it's not OC'able or whatever. Sorry for nub question as always :)

The MSI version is the best.
- It runs the coolest... almost. (Gigabyte version runs cooler, but...)
- It (MSI) runs the quietest
- It (MSI) uses slightly less energy than the other versions.
- Looks great, imo.

Best solution

Asus, MSI and Gigabyte over EVGA and in that order .... I disagree with JRA's conclusions on MSI tho based upon techpowerups reviews

Asus has lowest idle power, lowestr fan noise and lowest temp under load per techpowerup reviews

Asus DC II
9 watts at idle / can handle 210
25 dBa at idle / 33 under load
29°C at idle / 68°C under load

10 watts at idle / can handle 210
25 dBa at idle / 37 under load
29°C at idle / 69°C under load

Gigabyte Windforce
10 watts at idle / can handle 219
27 dBa at idle / 37 under load
36°C at idle / 68°C under load

10 watts at idle / can handle 207
26 dBa at idle / 38 under load
33°C at idle / 72°C under load

I have to say tho.....not seeing the separation between the Asus and other brands that we saw in the 5xx and 6xx series.

Apologies, I haven't actually seen any reviews of the ASUS version - I didn't know there was one.

I shall investigate shortly - thanks for the heads up :) 

Apologies to OP for false information.

EDIT: According to TechPowerUp, the MSI produces 27db at load, and matches the ASUS' 9W idle draw.
The ASUS does indeed run coolest though.

No worries JAR, I just saw the review ..... but the DCII was super with the 560 ti and the 670 i expected the same kind a dominance with the 760 ..... manages just to squeak by and the performance "outta the box" is disappointing.

I never would've guessed, from that avatar :p 

I'm thinking of ordering one soon - just waiting to see the rap with Battlefield 4, regarding whether it sways towards NVidia like BF3 did, or if the "optimisation" for AMD pays off, in which case I may get a 7950 instead.

Out of interest, do you make your own gifs for your avatars?
They always seem to follow the same "style".

haha, it looks cool anyway :p
