ASUS DCII cooling, on which card? Tags: Graphics Cards Asus Cooling Geforce Graphics Product Last response: August 8, 2012 1:49 PM in Graphics & Displays Share nilsemann August 7, 2012 4:42:11 PM Im really impressed with ASUS' DirectCU II cooler. But i have not decided whether to go for the geforce 670, or the radeon 7970. Here (Norway) they are equally prized. I like nVidias software better, and have better experience with their cards (Driver-wise). But now, im kinda 50/50 Any thoughts?

What i want: Silent card that will last long, without errors/bugs/faults. Maybe SLI/CF in the future(got space) Related resources What's the Best GTX 670?

So much wrong with this. But anyway, I say go for the 670. Edit: And yes, the ASUS DCII is the model to go for. nilsemann August 8, 2012 1:47:56 PM Ty for good answers! You are confirming what my brain tried to tell me. Ill go for the 670. Do you have any links regarding OC and GPU lifetime? hellfire24 said:equally priced? go with 7970,it's faster out of the box plus you can overclock it further for better result. spend half on a 1080p monitor and half on a 7870 or 7950 if possible. Sry, but this makes no sense. I suspect youre mistaken 1650 native res with 1650 res on a 1900 screen. hellfire24 a b U Graphics card August 8, 2012 1:49:39 PM ^i mean to say that 1080p is the best resolution for gaming IMO.7870 is a very capable card too.
