Hi, I'm currently building my first gaming PC and I'm wondering between 2 Graphic cards.

EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (400$)

And

MSI N670 PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (390$)

I'm tempting to go with the first one. but some people is telling me the second one is better(better cooling system). Witch one do you guys thing I should go for? Witch one would be the best? I want to play BF3 and other big games in max, or at least close to max settings.
