  1. The Asus GTX 670 DC II got the Editor's choice award from techpowerup, also it's reported that it runs a bit cooler and less noisy than the Gigabyte Windforce.

    So both cards are great but I'd recommend the Asus one. http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-GeForce-GTX-670-DC2-2GD5-GTX670-DC2-2GD5/dp/B0081IFO2C/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1341933656&sr=1-2&keywords=asus+gtx+670

    Out of the box the Gigabyte GV-N670OC-2GD is faster than the ASUS GeForce GTX 670-DC2-2GD5 since the ASUS card uses nVIDIA's reference clocks.

    Overclocking potential? I would have to say the Gigabyte GV-N670OC-2GD because its operating temperature is lower.

    In a review of the Gigabyte GV-N670OC-2GD, that I've read, they were able to overclock it higher than the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 could be overclocked (the ASUS GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 is the factory overclocked version of the ASUS reference clocked card you linked to).

    Your experience may be different since overclocking potential is not consistent and is based on if you're lucky enough to get a card that has a high quality ASIC (i.e. GPU chip)

    They both have the same 3 Year warranty period. I've heard of bad customer service from both companies although I've heard that Gigabyte's is worse than ASUS'.

    The OP isn't looking at the factory overclocked TOP version that techPowerUp.com reviewed.

    But if we're comparing temperatures, then from techPowerUp's own reviews:

    Gigabyte GTX 670 OC 2 GB


    ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP


    The ASUS card is quieter under load.
  4. I wanna order this today -___- Hmm... the one on amazon is the same thing as this right ? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125423&Tpk=gigabyte%20gtx%20670

    Yes it's exactly the same model.

    Gigabyte currently only has two GeForce GTX 670 models. One model (GV-N670OC-2GD) has three cooling fans and the other model (GV-N670WF2-2GD) has two cooling fans.
  6. Okay thanks ko888. If you were me, which one would u pick. EVGA FTW or the Gigabyte?

    If I wasn't planning on manually overclocking the card I would go with the EVGA FTW since it's clocked higher. EVGA has better customer service if you ever need warranty support.

    If I want a card that runs quieter and cooler then it would be the Gigabyte GV-N670OC-2GD.
