    Even though the boost overclock on the asus card is 1137MHz? I mean that's an amazing oc compared to gigabytes oc boost 1059MHz...

    I thought you had to have two of the same cards to run sli?
  5. I agree... the gigabyte looks great. And its cheaper than Asus, at lest here.

    nope i agree with you the Asus is better i also have had issues with gigabyte cards never had issues with asus so i may be being bias but even TechPoweUp gives the 670 TOP an 10.0 rating, the only 10.0 rating ever

    Lol thank God someone agrees with me! I meant the asus gtx 670 directCU II (top) Ye and this card does beat the 680 :P Will the massive overclock on the asus give me a big performance boost over the gigabyte or will it only be like 5 fps?
  9. It will be a performance boost over the gigabyte but it won't be a big one.I would assume more than 5 fps though.

    Is the Asus worth the extra money though?

    i have try four of them the evga the Asus Direct CU II TOP
    the GIGABYTE and this one i thought the Asus and this one were the best so imo it's worth the extra money yes http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127685 $409.99 (Before $25.00 Mail-In Rebate Card) FREE SHIPPING

  12. The ASUS card has better and custom components as well as their famous Digital VRM. This means the card gets much better power delivery. The Gigabyte Windoforce is known for its amazing 3 fan cooler, so it will stay cooler.
    Both cards have excellent cooling, with the Gigabyte one being a little better, but louder at stock.
    As for PCB, the Gigabyte's is a reference GTX 680 PCB, but with no "real" custom parts that would assist overclocking, unlike the ASUS card.
    The bottom line is, if you want to overclock your card as high as possible on air cooling, the ASUS card is the way to go (although the GTX 670 design allows for quite a bit of overvolting, so the Gigabyte Windforce could compete here as well), but as for cool cards, the Gigabyte's card would be your best bet if you do not want to overclock very high.
    If you do plan to go with water-cooling at all, ever, the Gigabyte Windforce card would be better due to its GTX 680 PCB that have an abbundance of waterblocks available.

    Nope, just the same chipset.
