hello,
I´m going to buy an alienware x51( just because of the size of it, if it gets bigger,I wont be able to transport it (I´m from brazil and going to buy it in US)so I know It´s overpriced but it´s not such a problem ) and I´m in doubt wich graphics card should I choose : the gtx 670 or the gtx 760. which one is better for gaming and film editing? the difference of price is not such a problem for me, I want the best one!
thanks in advance!!

Those two cards are about the same, so get which ever one is cheaper.

If you're in one of the hot bits of Brazil get whichever has the best cooler, the GTX 760 throttles at 80C and the stock coolers: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... may have problems keeping the temperature below that point if the system is somewhere hot. The GTX670 does not throttle at 80C but expect it to run hotter if it uses the same type of reference cooler.
Without running benchmarks you'll not notice the performance difference between the two cards although the GTX670 is a LITTLE faster at stock speeds.

I'm not in one of those "hot bits" hahahaha I get around 10 to 20 celsium degrees around here haha, I'm sticking with the 670 then! Maybe next gen games will need a slightly bette GPU than the 760

Glad you took the humour the way it was intended, Brazil is a huge country and it has a wide climate range so I needed to know.
Enjoy the system, mate.

Of course old mate, I just hate who thinks here is a jungle hahaha I've been in Washington, orlando and NY and it's pretty much alike here.
But bro, do u think i should buy this alienware? Everyone is telling me NOT haha but is just that I think it will fit my needs(editing videos and gaming) , it is fucking expensive here( over 4k dollars) so I could sell it later and I think it's fucking small, and would help a lot when I bring it from US .
But I'm bot going to buy if will not fit my needs abd future needs( bf4 and next gen games)
