Hey guys,
I just want to know which graphics card would work best with my system:
The EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB
OR ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II 2GB
OR MSI GTX 670 Power Edition OC 2GB
OR Gigabyte windforce geforce gtx 670 oc 2GB

Also, i plan to maybe SLI in the future. As for budget-wise, i can afford them all and just want the best one for my system, but i have an extra ~50-100 bucks on my rig's budget so feel free to recommend any other ones :) 

It will go with:
CPU: Intel i5-3750k Ivy Bridge LGA 1155
CPU COOLER: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm
MOTHER BOARD: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP4 TH LGA 1155 Intel Z77
or GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
POWER SUPPLY: PC Power qnd Cooling Silencer MK II 750W
SSD: SAMSUNG 830 Series 128GB
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache
CASE: Undecided (probs mid-tower)

And a monitor that i have not brought yet.

Thanks guys!

EVGA FTW edition just because it has good cooling and amazing preformance but FYI if you love to overclock spend more money for the 7970 because it's not voltage locked like the 670

I vote for the EVGA, but get the signature 2 version - it has considerably better cooling.

The only reason I would go with EVGA over any other company is because IMO they have the best RMA process, Its simple fast and easy. Asus is also pretty good but then again when I have sent stuff in for RMA sometimes it goes to somewhere in Idaho and I have had horrible luck there. Msi is worthless when it comes to RMA. I do not have much of an opinion over giagabyte

Gigabyte = no no; for me atleast.
EVGA Has some pretty decent cooling
ASUS because of the awesome cooling they put on their cards
MSI Is also pretty good with cooling, but like cia24 said, RMA is a bitch with them.

EVGA FTW, especially if you plan to SLI because then Blower style coolers are the best.

I'm a bit confused what these even are. I know there are EVGA cards, MSI, Asus, all the stuff you mentioned. At first I thought you may need to match cards with mobo brand but since he has a gigabyte mobo and you guys recommended EVGA, I'm guessing that doesn't matter?

I know you have to match up with the right type of PCI port on the mobo but otherwise it doesn't matter what card you get?

I'm only asking because I've noticed that EVGA cards are much cheaper, and if you guys say they're also good on cooling, I think it's a no brainer to get EVGA
