Should I get the EVGA or GIGABYTE?

It doesn't really matter, but most people would probably side with the EVGA. It costs less and has a more respected brand behind it.

EVGA one has more of a reference cooler which is supposed to be pretty decent and it's got quicker clockrates.
Gigabyte one has the 3fan windforce thing which if I remember rightly is supposed to be really effective at cooling but sounds like a jet taking off.

The MSI versions run even coolder.The clocks on MSI are slightly lower but can acchieve higher clocks with OC.The noise is not as high as the gigabyte.

Im not really that intrested in OC'ing GPU's and would perfer to get a second one in SLI

A lot of people here are of the opinion that people should avoid SLI except with multiple of the best possible video cards.

Any Reason for That?
November 3, 2012 4:21:26 PM

Yes, lots of them. You can read my blog if you want, I wrote a big long analysis on that subject.
November 3, 2012 4:24:27 PM

What about SLI using a GTX 660 ti bought now and another one bought in next years by this time for 20% the price?
November 3, 2012 4:27:31 PM

That question is also covered.

Can't acess the blog for some reason :/

Someone else had that issue too, you might have to be logged into google for it to work.

If I were you I would go for a Radeon HD 7950 due to the fact that its cheaper and if you go for a non reference cooler like the Sapphire Dual-X it is a brilliant overclocker.
Just my opinion.

Wow who thought choosing a graphics card couldbe so hard...
November 3, 2012 8:28:36 PM

It is only hard if you make it that way.

In about 99% of ways, its the same exact thing.

I'd prolly stick with the evga gtx 670 because its from evga. I've heard great things about the msi one though with overclocking.

I wouldn't go for sli gtx 660 ti, it would be much better to go with cf 7950/7970 or sli gtx 670.

Also, this all depends on how much you are willing to spend.

P.S. I have an evga gtx 670 and its performed marvelously and OC'd pretty well.

I,ve got the EVGA 670 and a superb card it is too. :D

I would just get the EVGA card based on customer support premise. And that's coming from someone with a gigabyte 670 and I really love it but when I called customer support to see how long it would take to have a card RMA'd because I was having issues (that I fixed later) they said it would take 2-3 weeks turn around and the customer support person I talked to didn't seem very knowledgeable and I've talked to EVGA before and they have there *** together.
