I really wanted to get an EVGA or ASUS, however, here in our country they are quite hard to find or costs a LOT more. Only PowerColor, Palit, and Sapphire are readily available. Based on what i've heard, EVGA cards have somewhat better quality, but is Power color, Palit, or Sapphire not a bad choice? or should I avoid these brands?
Once again, thank you so much to anyone who would lend a helping hand
It looks like the first card there has a factory cooler whereas the PCS+ has an aftermarket cooler. Aftermarket coolers generally perform better.
You can still overclock either card further if you want, and if you do I recommend the card with the aftermarket piece. They run games faster.
By the way, PowerColor, Palit and Sapphire are all very good brands. EVGA don't make Radeon cards!
Good luck and have fun.
I meant, an EVGA 650 Ti..
Anyway, thanks for the answers. Just to clarify though, is it okay to use an Overclocked video card without an aftermarket cooling system on my PC? I don't really have plans on overclocking by the way (since i don't even have any idea how to do so. LOL)
As a conclusion though, which among the three cards do you suggest that I should get? Thanks
