Hello people, I'm seeking your knowledge to make my final decision towards which graphic card should I buy, and hopefully after several weeks of thinking, buy my new rig. The 4 GTX670s I have in mind are the following:

EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16

ZOTAC AMP! ZT-60302-10P GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16

ASUS GTX670-DC2-2GD5 GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16

GIGABYTE GV-N670OC-2GD GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16

I'm looking mainly for performance and overall features (the price doesn't matter). Thanks!

Yes, you can adjust the core speeds yourself, good cooling is always important. ( so you can safely adjust the core speed :D  )

Well, probably driver related and maybe only for my card. ( gtx560Ti Soc )

When i first used it it crashed a lot during games. Been working on that problem for a couple of ( frustrating ) days and without knowing what fixed the problem suddenly it was stable.
Now after reinstalling windows it was unstable again, been having the same frustration and again it got stable without me knowing how. It's nice it's working ok now but i can't stand not knowing what makes it work.
Also i only can use old drivers, otherwise it crashes again.
Gigabyte helpdesk is terrible with this, they even don't understand what i'm talking about.

I have to say when it does work it works great, some benchmarks show it's up to speed with a 570.

So my opinion is only based on this card and maybe not fair, like i said ; i'm not the right person to ask.

I'll go with gigabyte then. Seems like the best card out there, heard you can OC this thing pretty good. Thanks!

You could also take ASUS...I think it has a better cooling and 'cause of that it is more OC-able. The bad thing is that the DC II has only 915 MHz , while DC II TOP 1030 or 1050 MHZ(somethin' like that). Too bad it isn't available :( !

I'm still in doubt with all these different opinions. I'm re-considering ASUS just for the looks and for its possible customer service... hahaha :p  and also, that TOP edition is not available anywhere. Isn't gigabyte HQs in asia, making it more difficult in case of a deffective card? thanks again!.

Doesn't matter if "Gigabyte" has their HQ in asia. If you get a deffective card, you simply deliver it to where you bought it, if You bought it online, then call them.
I would go with ASUS DC II even if you can't get TOP version (i found it at amazon.com for about 350$).

Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-GeForce-GTX-670-DC2T-2GD5-GT...
It costs $429.99. They just sold the last one, now You can order it. I guess they won't sell it anymore :( 

Just get the DC II version. The TOP version is unstable, besides, You can OC Your simple version to match the TOP version!
BTW: guarantee is voided if Your VGA was OCed
