Hey,

So following this news http://www.tomshardware.com/news/m [...] 18240.html

Is it save to buy the MSI GTX 660 ti & MSI GTX 670 graphics card now?

I'm looking to get any of these but what I have heard from the link above it sounds like I will have to go with asus or such, last thing I want
is my gpu failing on me in 1-5 years time. Any help if I should go with MSI?

RMA procces with msi is a freaking Joke, so its asus, Go with EVGA.

The thing, with MSI, has, I think, a bit further to run. Basically, they are saying "no problem, and there's a 3 year warranty". Wouldn't be surprised to see an "adjustment" to spec, in next couple of weeks. Personally, I wouldn't get one, 'til there has been something definitive.
Evga has good reputation for support, but there are numerous better, in terms of performance. Gigabyte are quite good, and I've always found Asus fine, too. Tom's has done comparasons of numerous versions of both 670 and 660Ti.

I was thinking of getting this

Do you think it will be good to run games at max like battlefield?

You should be fine with Gigabyte, I've got a Gigabyte motherboard that's going on 5 years old still running great.

That's the one that Tom's rated as best 670, overall, and yes, that will murder BF3 @ 1080p.
