Hi guys, brand of cards do you think I should go for? Mostly for FPS games, Flight Simulators. Asus GTX 670 DirectCu II 2GB TOP DDR5 OR MSI N670GTX 2GB OC OR Palit GTX 670? Currently the Asus one looks good. But the price in Singapore are according,
ASUS and Gigabyte are probably the top two non-reference GTX 670s so far. I have the Gigabyte, and I'm very happy with the custom cooling. The tri-fans are extremely quiet and the card stays very cool. When the fans do ramp up it's more of a "whoosh" sound rather than something more audible and annoying.
I ended up with a card that has an average overclock, but I'm okay with it. I can manage a stable +125 offset for a 1,249MHz boost clock (my stock boost is 1,124MHz). Some people are able to break 1,300 on the Gigabyte card.
If I had my choice right now and both cards were available, I would probably choose the ASUS, as I'm a fan of their products. I bought mine on release day though and the ASUS still isn't available in the US (rumor has it that it will be released this week though).
