Hi everyone, i'm building a new gaming pc, and I was thinking of buying an EVGA GTX 670 reference stock model, but I've heard that EVGA is having some issues with the NVIDIA 600 series.

Is this true? Should I consider another manufacturer? Or should I change to the Red Team?

Motherboard: Gigabyte b75 d3h
Processor: Intel Core i5 3570k
RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB 1600Mhz
PSU: Antec Earthwatts EA Green 650W

I don't know if anyone is reading this but I'm going to repeat my question one more time:

Is this true? Should I consider another manufacturer? Or should I change to the Red Team (7950 or 7970)?

Thanks in advance

ok, first please dont bump posts even through in-direct means asking the question once is enough.

secondly, i did a quick search and the chances of these problems happening to you are slim, people with an evga 600 series card don't come to forums to say it works, only those who have problems would right? unless you find an actual review maybe even on this website stating this you're probably fine, if you plan to oc maybe you should get a twin frozr but other than that good luck :)  on a side note you specs should be fine but can that b75 overclock your i5? if not it may be a waste

I'm sorry about that.
I cant overclock the I5, but where I live this is the only ivy bridge processor I could buy. There was no 3570 (non k version), 3550, 3470 or 3450. There was also no z75 motherboard and I couldn't afford a z77 one. Thanks for your answer, I'll keep investigating.
