Just a day ago i asked about choosing gpu (7970vs680) but now i found an amazing deal at newegg selling brand new Galaxy GTX 670 SC 4GB edition for only 379.99!!!
Holy crap that is almost same as 670 stock version and 120 cheaper then Stock 680?!
I havent heard much about brand galaxy but new egg review on the card seems to be excellent so i really want to buy it!!!!
So my question is :
1 Is Galaxy a trust worthy company that produces reliable products?
2 I heard the specific card im buying uses same pcv model as 680 so does it mean i have to buy a 680 backplate for an stock 680??
3 Is galaxy 670 cooling system adiquate?
PS im not asking weather i should buy 670 or 680 in case people gets confused for that price im 100% will buy 670 4gb ver and possibly OC it Just a tiny bit or as far as i can go with stock voltage xD
I would jump on it for that price it's a reliable brand.The Galaxy GTX 670 GC 4GB graphics card is based on GK104 as mentioned below and meets most of the same specifications as the reference GTX 670. That includes 1344 CUDA cores or stream processors, 112 texture units and 32 ROP units along with a 256-bit GDDR5 memory bus.
The GC title indicates that the Galaxy GTX 670 GC 4GB is overclocked as well - this card runs at 1006 MHz base clock, 1085 MHz Boost clock and 1500 MHz memory clock. Compared to the defaults of 915 MHz, 980 MHz and 1500 MHz (respectively) this Galaxy model gets a 10% increase in clock speed
