As long as you have enough space (3-slots) this is a great card. I have the 680 version and the large heatsink makes the card much less noisier.
- probably better overclocking potential
- backplate? (mine does, couldn't find a picture of the back)
- 3-slots ( a non-issue if you don't need those slots)
Don't forget to verify that it fits in your case, and your PSU can handle it (min 550Watt PSU with enough 6-pin/8-pin connectors)
