So I want the Nvidia Gtx 660 that's coming out (not the Ti) but I know which brand to chose.

Im looking at EVGA, Gigabyte, ASUS and MSI but i dont know which ones have the best rep for cards or the best make for this card.

Any help is appreciated :)

IMO I would wait a while and see if MSI comes out with GTX 660 PE or
GTX660 HAWK.

Either of these will most likely have the best overclocking and cooling solution of any 660.

If you dont want to wait or dont plan on overclocking, I would go with either of the MSI ones.

Factory OCED version same price after rebate.

This one has the highest factory overclock but you can easily reach this on the other cards anyways.

Ooo mixed opinions, I will shed some light on why I chose the msi ones.
MSI stuff is super cool! I think this concludes it.

In all seriousness looking at graphs of the 660 temps in this video.

The EVGA one is running a bit hotter but this is to be expected since its has a blower type cooling shroud and is running a slightly higher clock.

I would choose EVGA because it is cheaper and has higher clock, it helps alleviate the lack in memory bandwith that all GTX 660 suffer (a bit inappopriate word but you get my point ;)  ).
