I was just going to go with the ASUS version, and then overclock.

What is the difference between the ASUS version and the brands that are like 600 bucks....? :o

Also, will I have a problem with trying to keep and OC 580 cooled?

    the asus DCII, msi twin frozr, or gigabyte x3fan models are amazing on cooling granted you have the case airflow to support a non reference card. if not, the EVGA reference will be good for you. ive heard good things about gainward, but never have actually seen one of those crazy looking coolers reviewed
  2. every one on that page in fact is a good brand, just which one for your sitation. I have MSi 570 and love it.
  3. also, for OCing coolilng, the asus, msi, or gigabyte are all great

    In my experience with MSI motherboards they are rock solid and very stable.The gpu's carry along the same stable power management and phase control (military class II Certification).

    I am about to buy this GTX 580 along with a brand new PSU.
    The PSU is the reason I am not overclocked right now and am stuck at 3.3GHz.

    My case is a Coolermaster HAF-X.
  6. Evga is a rock solid company and they stand behind thier video cards 100% , thier customer service and tech support is the best I have dealt with on any Pc component. They do warrenty thier cards for life and they also do honor the warrenty.

    I would recommend you get this for your psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139016


    This is what I am getting: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=17209

    Think it is basically the same.
  8. I'll probably go with ASUS GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU II then, they have always been good for me.

    ASUS is apparently the best in all categories.
