Hey guys. Been saving up for a graphics card for a while, and I decided on the gtx 760 a while back. Originally, I wanted to go with gigabyte's model. However, I recently say MSI's version, and was impressed. Did some research of my own, and I couldn't find any comparison of the two. If anyone has any knowledge of the two card's differences or a link I could check out, I'd appreciate it.

Generally, the only difference is branding with the occasional "special variant" which may entail being factory overclocked - the extent of this varies.

When it comes to which is better, in my opinion, it's all pretty subjective. There are some who will swear by Msi or Asus, etc. Generally ASUS and MSI have very good cooling solutions (eg., DirectCU and TwinFrozr), but any non-reference cooling design will suffice.

My advice: Go with the brand with best deal at the time you're looking to purchase your card.

I'd go with the EVGA GTX 760 SC w/ ACX http://amzn.to/15J0OZX It's the cheapest, great cooler, great customer service and support, and a great performer.

Thanks man. I'm just really OCD about the tiniest specifications sometimes, and after checking out those two tests side by side, I see that there really is not that huge of a difference :p . I'll probably go with whichever one is at Fry's when I head over (though I'm hoping for Gigabyte's).

Glad to have helped. You'll be surprised. There are those that will pay a premium for that extra 1-2 FPS in a given game...bit extreme, but's let's not judge. :) 

Thought I should mention: Gigabyte isn't known for their customer support, but their cards are hardy enough chances are you won't need it.

Enjoy the card.
