GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 670 GV-N670OC-2GD ($399.99) @ Newegg
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW ($409.99) @ Newegg
MSI GeForce GTX 670 N670 PE 2GD5/OC ($409.99) @ Newegg
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 Superclocked+ w/Backplate ($449.99) @ Newegg

I'm gearing towards the Msi Power Edition, but the Superclocked EVGA has 4gigs of memory, but that won't matter if I'm running a FULL HD 1980p monitor
Also, would 2 Power Edition in SLI fit into a GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP5 TH?

I guess you mean 1080p and you're right, 4gb is overkill if using only 1 monitor .

Yes they would. Personally, I prefer the twinfrozer one but all of them are very good cards. It is true that the EVGA's cooler (forgot how it's called) will get the hot air out instead of putting it in but it might not be as effective and with good airflow, it won't really matter.

why is twin frozer better? this one seems to go pretty cool and it has thermal armor, not how big of a difference it makes though.

I didn't say it was better, i said that it was my favorite. Why? Because it looks good, msi build quality, triple overvoltage and is probably more silent then reference design. I'm not saying it's the one you should pick, it's just that i prefer twin frozer.

i would get the evga superclocked+, but its also the most expensive so out of the rest i would get the evga ftw or the msi power edition, i have no preference out of the 2, except the power edition should overclock better, but the ftw can also overclock very well, you would probly be better off saving 40 bucks and getting the evga ftw or msi power edition

I have two Msi Power Edition i highly recommend it. MSI's GTX 670 Power Edition uses the famous Twin Frozr IV cooler from the MSI Lightning and comes with a large clock speed boost out of the box, making its default clock speed even higher than GTX 680 stock clocks. MSI is asking a $30 price premium for their card, which doesn't look unreasonable, given the improved cooling and higher clocks.

I'm going with the Gigabyte Windoforce. It's the best Single Card GPU in terms of cooling, falls a little short on performance compared to the MSI Power Edition, but it is not overvolted: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/MSI-GTX-660-670-overvolti...
