I am about to pull the trigger and buy a sli configuration, but am kinda lost on which set of 670's I want to go with. On that note I want to add that reference cards are not something that I am interested in. I found some cheap 670s on ebay and want to be sure that I pick the right ones. I don't want the cards to be super loud (something quieter). I saw that the zotac amp edition is a great 670 card, but is it a lot louder than the other aftermarket 670 models? Any help here guys would be fantastic! :pt1cable:

After looking at the stats of the one's you guys mentioned I believe I will go with the superclocked, or the ftw. Is it tomato tomatoe here? Or is there a difference between the two that would be a deal breaker? Thanks guys.

EVGA Undertakes Mini Recall Of GeForce GTX 670 SC, Owners To Get FTW as Replacements


As it was, the SC didn't compete all that well.


http://www.guru3d.com/article/evga-geforce-gtx-670-sc-r...
EVGA SC Boost Clock is 1046 outta the box....stable at 1200 Mhz
EVGA SC gets 3DMark Score of 8691 outta the box and 9443 OC'd
Idle temp is 29C / load temp is 78C
Noise is 37 dBA Idle / 43 dBA under load

http://www.guru3d.com/article/asus-geforce-gtx-670-dire...
Asus TOP Boost Clock is 1137 outta the box .... stable at 1280 Mhz
Asus gets 3DMark Score of 9340 outta the box and 9839 OC'd
Idle temp is 30C / load temp is 72C
Noise is 37 dBA Idle / 38 dBA under load

That makes the Asus 7% faster outta the box than the EVGA SC, 6C cooler and almost 1/4 as loud under load (every 3 dBA is a doubling of sound level). The FTW is slightly faster than the SC, leaving the Asus model w/ just a 5% performance advantage

Nice information there JackNaylorPE you saved me on that purchase! I guess I will most likely be going with the windforce since I can go to a store and get it today instead of waiting all weekend. Do those have a 6 and 8 pin connector instead of the 6 & 6?
