Gigabyte GTX 760 WindForce 3X OC 2 GB (Rev. 2) vs EVGA GTX 760 SC w/ ACX Cooler 2 GB

Hello,

I'd like to know which one uses higher quality components.I am mostly worried about the VRMs and the reference PCB design of EVGA. Gigabyte appears to be of higher quality and uses a non-reference design but the fans are a bit flimsy(based on other users).Does anyone have any experience on these two cards?Thank you for your time.

    Gigabyte uses upgraded "Ultra Durable" components.

    Reviews of the EVGA show that some of the components are reference, while some are upgraded. Here's one that goes into some of the components used on the EVGA board.

    Don't you have to pay extra for it and install it yourself on the EVGA?

    My EVGA GTX 760 SC included a free backplate with product registration. It came less than a week after I submitted the registration and was pretty easy to install.
  7. me too,i just wish the gigabyte 1 offered backplates like evga does ,thanks
  8. I have a windforce gtx 770 and love it. I dont think you will be disappointed and as far as the fans go I do not think they are flimsy. They do their job well and are extremely quiet.
