I guess my real question is, who makes the best GTX 680 Card from Nvidia.
To my mind, I think EVGA produces the best Nvidia cards.
Good warranty and USA spport.
Look for the factory overclocked superclocked or FTW models.
EVGA likes to use dual slot direct exhaust type reference coolers. They get the heat directly out the back of the case.
Other oem coolers do well on an open testbed, but in a case, they let hot gpu air into the case where it affects both gpu AND cpu cooling. That puts extra pressure on great case cooling.
Will i notice a differ on that card you're showing me over the one i had? I mean... Even games like Sims 3 was still taking foreeeeeeeever to load on the XFX. i dunno if it's my computer itself. It has a 3.4 GHZ icore 7 2600 and 8GB of memory and..some dumb cheapo board made by ACER. lol. I have a Gateway FX 6850-51U with 1 PCI-E slot
Yeah. Sims 3 is the ONLY game out of all the games i own that make it's fans go insane in the case. All other games like GTA4, Mw3, Tomb Raider Underworld and so on, don't do that. Weird right? Maybe it's just cause it's modded i dunno. I'll have to play without mods sometime. I've never been a fan of Graphic Cards with only 1 fan. But hey, if you say that's the best then i'll go with your word. : )
The EVGA GTX 670 FTW is the one you showed me. I mean at the moment i can spend up to 550 - 600 on a Graphics Card but that one is gonna save me a bit of money cause i am planning on buying the COSMOS II Chassis case afterward lol
