    Depends entirely on the individual card, hun. On a budget, the Gigabyte GTX 670 is a great deal. It cools well, is quite and can overclock nicely. Best of all, it's much cheaper than most of its competition.

    A lot of Gigabyte cards are great all-rounders. They aren't the fastest or the best overclockers, but they are right up there, cool well, are virtually silent and cost a lot less than their competition.

    In general, you can't go wrong with a Gigabyte card.

    Non-modular psu have the cables fixed to the unit itself while modular psu have modular interface so that you can pull out the cables you don't need and/or or plug in the cables you need only. There's also semi-modular. I think the name speaks for itself

  14. Nobody has pointed out the fact that he has an HP case. If he's gonna go with a Gigabyte windforce card it probably won't fit.
