Im surely wanting to upgrade to a 670 GTX, but unsure of which one to buy, Im set on either the ASUS Direct CU II for $420 or the GIGABYTE with 3 fans and has this websites recommendation. the asus has a complete non plastic build and similar cooling over the gigabyte. money isnt an issue so just wondering which would be better for cooling and reliability.

I like the asus cooling solution and lot more and the materials for the cover, but in the compared article they used a higher speed asus card, which is only $10 more than the one im looking at but the higher one is out of stock, for for preformace and since both have great cooling out of these two wat would be better?

The Asus is the king of the hill.....The difference between the TOP and the one you linked is that Asus uses specially binned chips in the TOP.

Asus 670 TOP (10.0 rating)

Gigabyte 670 Windforce (9.8 rating)

okay so asus is the better choice if its the TOP one but the one in the link isnt the TOP edition and has lower core clock, and is $420 where the TOP edition on newegg is $430 with $8 shipping, wats the difference from the non TOP asus to the gigabyte? or is it worth waiting for the TOP to come back into stock and spend the $18 extra to the non TOP or the $38 more from the GIGABYTE?

^yeah for a ripoff price though, the egg had regularly priced at 420 when it was in stock, also saw it on sale for 400 w free ship one day, i think 440 is too much personally
