So, Hello again! I have a few questions, I'm building a new computer (Finally) soon, and I am a Graphics card overclocker (well, I like to overclock them) And basically, I've been looking at MSI n750ti GAMING card, But, Realised it hasn't got a 8pin power connector, and the 750ti does get an extra 10frames at most with the extra power, So, Basically, I wont be getting that card, So, The next card im wondering about getting is the Asus GTX750ti OC or the Gigabyte GTX750ti OC But there is one problem, When i built my friends computer with the Gigabyte 650ti OC, it didn't like to be Overclocked at all after that (instead of Telling me the Core clocks, it just gave me a slider for %, This is through MSI Afterburner)

Now, The question is, Has anybody managed to Overclock these Graphics cards without being weirded out with the % slider? Which Card should i get? Stay with the MSI, Or go with either one?

Thankyou for reading this AWFULLY long post, and i hope to get answers soon!

EDIT: Im leaning Towards the ASUS card, As it looks nicer, but, Should i use GPU tweak, Or MSI Afterburner (Do they basically work the same and are just different Looks?) Or should i stay with the Gigabyte and such?

Yes they are the same. Overclocking software will vary on the interface by either showing % change from base clock or display actual clock speed. I try to stick with software from the card manufacturer if I can help it, but it shouldn't matter unless there is a clear indication of incompatibility.

Generally I don't care about branding as long as they are mainstream. Once you have a price range, prioritize specs first, then warranty. Everything else in my opinion is extra.

If it helps any, I prefer ASUS. But spec for spec if I had to choose between ASUS vs Gigabyte I would let price be the final deciding factor.
