Which GTX 670 from Gigabyte would be better to buy? The Windforce 3X seems to be vastly more popular whereas the Windforce 2x does not even seem to have a proper review!

Well it depends on what your meets your needs. The 2x has a shorter PCB so if length is an issue it may be the better choice. It also requires two 6-pin power connectors vs the 3x which requires 6+8.

In therms of aesthetics I like the 3x a lot more but I would imagine they are very close in terms of performance. Basically I would go for the 3x if it can fit.

Well... you can see which is better from the name. 3 > 2.

I do have enough power (XFX Pro 850W Core Edition) and a large enough case (HAF 922), so I guess I will go for the 3X.
Just strange no one uses the 2X!

Wtf why no one noticed that 2x100mm is more efficient actualy than 3x75mm fans. Small = Noisier!

I took the 2x version cause of the bigger fans and that it was much much cheaper during the boxing day too. I saw both in my hands and I didn't like the 3x version with small fans.
