    You wont ever notice a performance gain keeping it the same manufacture. least I haven't, but as brands go EVGA has lasted me the longest. PNY, MSI are my second choice and current PNY is not showing its age ether(no fan sounds, lag, n frag. Gigabyte and Asus are two I have never used in the graphics area, although Asus motherboards have been really good to me. Id just go with EVGA because in two years you can go to Ebay and find plenty to make a SLI set up. (EVGA being the most purchased card)
  2. Get one that has the cooler you want. Otherwise all the brands u named are good.

    Yes, but reference cooler pulls hot air out of the case which is better for small cases and not very well ventilated machines (pre built, mass stamped ones). 2-3 fan coolers mostly rotate the air around themselves and heat up the air inside the case, which is totally fine if u got 3+ fans on the case.

    my pc case has two or 3 little coolers + a big cooler (extra buy) and the cpu cooler corsair somewhat
    i just need the g-card cuz right now i have just the intel hd 4000 integrated from the i7 3770k

    but really thnx from you you really helped :??:
  9. u r welcome. I got MSI card with twinfrozr and my machine has 3 120mm fans pulling air in, PSU, 140mm, and 120mm fans pulling it out. Works great :D The card does not go over 50 degrees and its factory overclocked.
