Hello everyone, I Have a question. I am looking to upgrade my graphics card with all the Christmas specials going on, so I really like the gtx 670's because I know that they are almost as good as the 680's and about $80 less! With that being said I currently have a Gtx 550ti and its just not that impressive so im looking to get a card that can max out almost all of the games with ease(I know metro 2033 is a pain to max) But you know the games like Ac3 Bf3 D3 WoW Skyrim Blackops2 etc. I am a very competative gamer so I want performance!
That being said, the 670 is a good pick - I have one and it'll max out any FPS (save BF3, which requires a few settings lowered) at 120fps - most other games it does just as well with, and I have yet to see it fail to max any game at 60fps, with a mild overclock and, perhaps, such things as supersampling turned off.
That being said, I prefer EVGA due to their amazing warranty - the signature 2 or the real FTW are the cream of the crop. Other manufacturers have better coolers, but since the voltage is locked on Nvidia's cards anyways, I prefer having better service.
To be honest, everything spec wise matches up.. so whats the difference?
That galaxy one looks nice also, but i have never really seen galaxy as big as Evga etc, + apperantly the fan speeds get loud @ 55% ): And for some reason, the card looks like a really cheap built card.
Dont think im saying your wrong, thats just from my point of view(This is me buying my first card)
That makes the Asus 7% faster outta the box than the EVGA SC, 6C cooler and almost 1/4 as loud under load (every 3 dBA is a doubling of sound level). The FTW is slightly faster than the SC, leaving the Asus model w/ just a 5% performance advantage however when you look at other reviews
ASUS GTX 670 TOP = Silent.
MSI GTX 670 PE = Better Overclocking.
