Gtx 670 SLI 2 model options Aus builder

Hi all.

Putting together a new system for a good friend, using SLI gtx for the GPU setup. I have used the 1st model listed on a couple of different systems now and have been really happy with it's performance, price etc:

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 Overclocked 2GB = $449

However. Recently I've seen this model appearing around the place:

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 WF2 2GB = $419
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1387&products_id=21458

Obviously a different cooling system. But in trying to cut down budget, does anyone see a big problem with the other cheaper model? GPU overclocking isnt a big concern for this system as specified by the owner. They will be used to power a 27" 3D 120Hz display.

Any input appreciated. Not really looking at throwing any other model into the mix at this stage, unless I've missed something you guys find.

  1. I'm sorry but where are you seeing these prices? Are you U.S. based?

    If you are, Newegg has both cards listed at the same price of $399.99

  2. Thanks for having a look. I need to order from Australian based sites. Newegg doesn't love us over here :)

    Ah, that makes sense. Yeah, sorry about Newegg :p

    I would believe the 2 fan card would work, might be a bit hotter than the 3 fan solution, but if you really need to pinch pennies then by all means.

    I can't seem to find any benchmarks on the card, and I've never heard of this variation personally. I'll have a look around, but as of right now, I would suggest the 2 fan card to save some $$$.
