  1. Well, I would go with a 600 series card at this point. Lower power consumption, cooler card, higher performance.

    660Ti v. 580: What I take away from this benchmark is that in modern games the 660Ti does a better job but in everything else it tends to stay pretty close to the 580.

    670 v 580: However in this case the 670 does a far better job then the 580

    Brands I would recommend:

    If you are wanting a plain card nothing special no frills and whistles:
    EVGA: Best reference card maker, Good Service (customer support, technical support, warranties, step up program for upgrading to a newer card through exchange.)

    Aftermarket solutions: This is probably how I would rank them in that order.

    1. ASUS
    2. MSI
    3. Gigabyte

    Also what does the rest of your system look like?

    MOBO:
    RAM:
    GPU:
    PSU:

    Resolution running at example 1920x1080:

    i a planning to get gigabyte gtx 670. is it good choise?
  3. It's the card I'm currently using in my setup its a good card yes. Runs cold, very quiet, performs beautifully. Comes at a cheaper price point then a lot of the other enthusiast aftermarket grade cards.

    i will get windforce 2x because my case is too small :) What about corsaor tx650 ? is it good choice?
  5. Ah yea that would make sense. Just make sure you can fit either but yea I can understand that. I had a TX650 for a while its a good power supply. They now have version 2 of the unit so it should be stronger then before I would think. It comes with all the connections you need.

    You could go with this one as well. It comes with more PCI-E power connections for the same price. Same level of quality as the TX650v2 both of which use a Seasonic OEM.
