i was looking at the gigabyte and the evga ftw and the asus dc ii. which will perform the best? i will be overclocking. i was kinda hoping for a black pcb but the gigabyte is the cheapest and it has the toms hardware recommended buy. and is the msi pe still worth buying? i heard they were doing something to their cards that made them not worth buying anymore, cause that would have been my first choice

i was planning on buying the msi pe, but now that i heard they have a problem... i am now dumb founded on which to buy, i will probably not go with gigabyte because i haven't heard good things about there software and have heard a couple other issues with them too, but that's just personal preferences.

I bought the Asus one and it is fantastic! I highly recommend it, solid card. You really won't see a huge difference between the different cards. Seen the card hit 72c max on the highest graphic settings possible in Nvidia Control Panel and in games just using auto fan settings.

I stick to EVGA my self. EVGA is NVIDIA's Tier 1 partner. But the warranty, and software are both good to me. I have not had any issues (Other than driver kinks) with my 670. I have this:

But since i plan to overclock my card, i might try to get either this:

or this one because i actually need more Vram for Armored kill

Is 2gb actually not enough?

2gb should be enough & at 4gb 670 price you are very close to 680 pricing

so which one out of the asus dc2(not top) or the gigabyte triple fan, would be better as far as overclocked performance

Well Yea 2GB is enough but you don't get 4GB of vram in SLI with two 2GB cards.... Just a heads up

Direct CU II, ASUS is a good company to go with for hardware. I have had quite a number of things from them and no issues
