I would probably overclock the GPU, just maybe.
I heard EVGA has good customer support so I'm sorting leaning towards them.
Also, is there anywhere that sells the ASUS GTX 670 TOP? That card seems well.

More about which
  1. EVGA FTW because it has the awesome 680 cooling and it has great preformance/overclocking potential and they have the BEST customer support
  2. I like the EVGA FTW but most people that will come through here are gonna recommend the gigabyte or ASUS.. If it were me I'd either get the FTW or the PE. I know a guy who has a Power Edition and it maxed all his games (He has 2011 though)

    NOTE: ASUS doesn't have a TOP edition yet I don't think

    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx670dc2t2gd5 they do have it but a weird thing is that if you go to the website that sells the card it comes up at an error for my so i don't know

    Yea it looks pointless to buy a top since it still only comes with 2GB of vram..
  5. So the GTX 670 FTW is my best choice then?
  6. the evga ftw or the msi pe, both should give you roughly the same performance, but you can overclock the msi better. i would get whichever is cheaper, which usually is the evga ftw, but if you can find the msi on sale then id get that instead
  7. no get the EVGA it is the best overall 670 and at a great price
  8. Get the FTW, its a good and reliable card
  9. One last question... should I get 2GB or 4GB version? Only $40 difference.
  10. Best answer
    Not many games use 4Gb right now.. Besides unless you break some world record OC on a FTW... the 670 idc what model will never push high enough on its on to use up 4Gb unless you got 2-3 in SLI and running multiple monitors... AND i also know it will do 3-4 monitors on a single card but... the frame rates you get... not worth it. So get the 2Gb.

    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

    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
