  1. Gtx 760 2gb
  2. Yeah it should do great
  3. God no.. don't get ASUS Direct CU. Get Gigabyte, EVGA or MSI
  4. Asus has some of the best cooling on nvidia cards. It is only with amd that they suck because they use nvidia designs on them to save money.

    some of the best cooling in terms of sound. Which is exactly what direct cu ii does, sacrifice its cooling aspect for being dead silent. So under load its dead silent but not that much cooler than a reference card, however I must note it for having great cooling while idle.

    I researched it quite a bit when deciding on which 760 to get and the Asus is really good. It and the MSI are the best two with evga being a very close second. 280 is a little much for the Asus I'd save 20-30 and get an evga acx. If you can find the msi hawk in stock it is fantastic and over clocks very well
    Edit: oops it is 270 not 280. Still the MSI gaming is 250 and on par with the Asus so no since in spending 20 more for the asus

    One question in mind, does the Galaxy GTX 760 2GB sound good?
