Im looking at upgrading my evga gtx 465 sli for a single card. I been debating on a 570/580/660ti/670 and read that probably the best would be 670 for obvious reasons. I've always used EVGA, but i read a lot of articles on them having bad batches of 670's and I like everyone else out there doesnt want to get a lemon. I been kicking around the idea of going with another brand and wanted to see what people's take if there are any major differences (besides slight performance) there are. Looking for the most stable and dependable card. I dont really OC a ton, so that isnt a big factor.
Also, not sure if this helps, but im looking at getting a used one through amazon, only way i can afford a 670 model.
I personally bought the gigabyte gtx 670, it uses the 680 reference board, overclocks very well, and has some of the best cooling out there (all for reference price). Mine is currently at +140mhz core and +780mhz memory stable in all games and never breaks 60C. Most newegg reviews for the card tell the same story, Can't go wrong with this card.
