Which gtx 670?

I'm trying to figure out which gtx 670 to go with. I have it narrowed down to EVGA 670 ftw vs Asus 670 dcii vs Msi power edition. I know performance will vary from game to game, so I don't want to base the decision on that since lots of games will be released while I have this card. I was originally deciding between the Asus and the evga, but the msi power edition has received some good reviews and is a little cheaper. I know the coolers are better on the Asus and the msi, but the step up program is tempting too. I guess I'm looking for opinions on longevity and which can handle overclocking better. Not so much which will overclock higher, but which will handle it better in the long run.

I5-2500k (still stock clock)
Z68ma-d2h-b3 mobo
8gb @1600mhz
750w psu
Samsung 830 256gb
Asus xonar essence stx

More about which
  1. I not an MSI fanboy but I do find the MSI model graphics cards to perform better that their counterparts. I have a 660 Twin Frozr III. Very happy with the temps, noise and the tools available to OC and monitor the thing.

  2. I've never had any issues with MSI, motherboards or video cards. I stand behind them 100%. Had a dead EVGA mb before, Asus is also good.
  3. ASUS GTX 670 TOP = Silent.
    MSI GTX 670 PE = Better Overclocking.

    Pick which you care more about. Nothing is Perfect between those 2 card. If you care more about silent, I would choose ASUS, but if you care more about Overclocking, I would go for 670 PE. Both are Excellent card.
