I have decided not to get a GTX 680 and to get two GTX 670's for SLI configuration for my computer. I have a Corsair TX750W v2 80 plus bronze power supply and have gotten the approval it is good enough for 2 of the gtx 670s. So my question is should I get the EVGA GTX 670 FTW, the ASUS GTX 670 DC II Top or wait for the newly announced MSI GTX 670 Power Edition? Once again, I will be using 2 of these in SLI.

Thanks again

EVGA is know for their customer service. The EVGA is clocked slower than the ASUS, though the same as a 680. It is also AVAILABLE!:

The Asus card is clocked beyond a 680, so it's faster. The Asus distributes heat inside the case. Depending on your case and fan configuration this could be good or bad. The Asus is not getting too good of customer reviews on newegg:

Both cards have a 3-year warranty. Both are priced within $10 of each other.

Because of availability and customer satisfaction, I'd choose EVGA. Even if you have an issue with the EVGA card, dealing with their customer service is generally less of a hassle.

I agree with ubercake , go for EVGA , I prefer my cards with a blower cooler especially in SLI to exhaust hot air out of the back of my pc tower and not into the internals of the case.
EVGA is a reputable brand, I bought a EVGA 680 and I absolutely love it.

My personal choice would be for a pair of Asus CDU II Top's.
Not only are they clocked higher, they also have a custom PCB design and nearly silent coolers.

As a downside, they will dump much of their heat into your chassis, so be sure you have plenty of ventilation.
Also, they are almost universally out of stock, so no telling how long it will be before you could actually purchase a pair...

Theres a few problems being posted about the Asus CDUII's tweaking software and clocks giving some rsods. Hopefully Asus will release a bios update or patch for the cards.

EVGA do deliver when it comes to RMA and customer service, they will gladly replace a faulty card without a hitch in my experience.

I might wait for the MSI GTX 670 Power Editions to come out, with the dual twin frozr IV fans and a 22.5% OC they are saying looks reallllly enticing.
