I want my card to perform as well as a GTX 590. I'm not sure whether to buy the ASUS or Gigabyte, the Gig is factory overclocked whereas the ASUS isn't. Is the Gig overclocked by much, or is it a weak overclock?

Opinions needed. :D

Personally I take ASUS over Gigabyte any day, but that's primarily because I have better experiences with them. Try looking for the 7970 DirectCUII model, I believe those are always slightly overclocked. Moreover, they are very silent compared to the stock coolers.

Wow, they've clocked it at 1 Ghz, that's pretty badass!

$750 AUD???? Are you kidding me?

:o 

I'm not sure, maybe 1 or 2 months. If you can't wait I'm really not recommending anything yet for a 7970 really from pccasegear... By the way if you are not bothering to get reference cooler, you can get this instead of that $750 business...

HIS cards are fine, they should at least overclock to 1Ghz at decent temperatures.

That's a cheap price here in Australia. :na: 

You should see the GTX 590's

They aren't as bad as they were a few months ago, but they're still pricey.

It's ridiculous considering the aussie dollar is worth more than the greenback.

Probably going to go with the Gigabyte, just for the awesome cooling it has. I can then further overclock it.
