Which GTX 670 Should I purchase?

I can't decide between the Galaxy GTX 670 GC, the eVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW, the eVGA GeForce GTX 670, the MSI GeForce GTX 670 Twin Frozr IV Power Edition, and possibly the Gigabyte Windfoce.

People say eVGA's customer support and RMA is the best. But they offer no non-reference cards. The Galaxy looks amazing and the custom PCB makes it attractive. But I just saw a Newegg benchmark with the Galaxy GC and other reference cards, and the Custom Galaxy one was just slightly cooler (But it is also OC'ed). And the Gigabyte windforce is 40 bucks less, and performs at 10 degrees less.

It is such a overload and I need some help guys! Thanks a ton.

  1. I was thinking the Galaxy, but I hear MSI is also great. I like that dust removal tech thingy from MSI. What about the Galaxy? Do you think it is not a good deal?
  2. "If you want a reference card get the EVGA GTX 670 FTW "

    - The 670 ftw actually has the reference cooling of a gtx 680 and the PCB of a gtx 680. So it isn't exactly reference....

  3. Reference card just means it has reference cooling. So in essence it is a reference card, it doesn't have after market cooling. It is a reference card.

    The obvious suggestion would be to get a nice OC'd card. They have the best cooling. And you can potentially over clock it more yourself you know how.

    The MSI or the Asus DC2Top is your best choices. I wouldn't doubt or deny the Gigabyte and other cards out there. In all any choice of a 670 is g ood enough.
  4. The reason I am hesitant about the MSI is that the fans' fins look oddly small. I hear very bad reviews about the DC2, so i am gonna stay away from that

    I notice that you have SLI GTX 670 FTW. I know that they have a higher boost clock and memory clock and less CUDA cores and less in price but other than that what is the difference? I just got my 680's and looks like I could had saved money.

    The FTW doesnt have less Cuda cores than the reference, only the 680. It is a cheaper 680 with a few less cores.

  8. Reference or not... The fact is the GTX 670 is a cool running energy sipping card.
  9. Dont be hating just because you have a 560 lol
  10. Who is hating? Besides you...

    I was commenting that the 670 runs very cool and is very energy efficient.

    The reference version of the 670 does a great job at cooling at stock speeds and still gives room for overclocking. Obviously non-reference versions will cool slightly better and allow for slightly higher overclocks. But, to what end? Will you notice a difference between an OCed reference 670 and an OCed non-reference 670? Probably not...

    My momma always says, "If it ain't boke, don't fix it!"
  11. I think I am going with a Gigabyte Windforce 670. I want a EVGA but the cooling isnt impressive
