Haven't built a computer in a very, very long time and decided to visit this awesome website for some tips.. So i checked out the threads at the top for medium budget machines and came up with the following:
Would really appreciate some advice!! Basically, this computer will be a hybrid work machine and a gaming machine.. Any advice, tips etc will be much appreciated and bare with me if I ask a lot of questions but I am pretty new at this!!
Only select games such as Crysis 3. And even then, you'll still be able to play on Ultra settings. You may just have to reduce anti-aliasing a bit. And maybe tweak some other settings. I'm sure there will be plenty of more upcoming games that will be far less intensive.
Some have better clock speeds than others. For the most part, the MSI GTX 670 Power Edition has better speed and better cooling than the EVGA card. There's also a Gigabyte version with a custom 3 fan cooler. It offers superior cooling versus the other GTX 670s. Although, the twin frozr cooling design MSI uses is more than sufficient.
Other than that, they are all virtually the same. You can also compare their warranties. Some companies offer better warranties than others.
