Is this true? | Report abuse TheBigTroll December 26, 2012 2:39:53 PM i personally dont have much of a problem recommending both. the 670 does have more stable drivers but then it costs more, performs a tad wores, and doesnt come with free games. just pick one of them. both will be great this is the 670 i was talking about. happens to come with borderlands 2 and asssasins creed 3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... | Report abuse Related ressources Is this a decent gaming build ? - Forum Is this a decent gaming build and will it fit? - Forum Decent Office build ? - Forum Will this build work, and is it decent for gaming? - Forum Is this a decent build ? - Forum Ask the community Publish Sqirk December 26, 2012 2:51:36 PM nevermind, this was a stupid reply that i asked you | Report abuse J_E_D_70 December 26, 2012 4:02:59 PM Since you're not overclocking and don't have an unlocked CPU you can ditch the Evo since it's really not going to add anything except a huge hunk of aluminum sticking out the side of your mobo. | Report abuse Sqirk December 26, 2012 4:41:23 PM Best answer selected by Sqirk. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Is this a decent build?> Related ressources: ForumIs this PC build decent for 1000 ForumDecent build for $880?
