Pretty sure that guy said 1440p, it is fair difference between 1440p and 1600p

Smooth enough for me and for 1440p? I'll take it
I'm just saying 2gb is all he needs for a 1080p if I can run the game fine on 1440p

Stay away from the TOP edition. I've had to RMA 3 times for being unstable. IF you do go with a DCII go with the DC2OG Version.

Water cooling will be more for the pursuit of silence, and experience in this case. Won't have the funds or time to do so until summer anyways. Kind of leaning away from the FTW because of the so-so stock cooling and more towards the MSI PE, no full waterblock support though frown.gif. Hmmmm

If your focus is using a waterblock, just decide between EVGA FTW or Gigabyte Windforce OC...Either 1 will do fine thumb.gif
If you decide not to use a waterblock, buy the FTW Signature 2 (king of the 670's wink.gif )

Doh. You're looking for a Kepler. I was thinking of selling my evga 680 sc with xspc block. Coincidence? Hm.... biggrin.gif


It's the card in this thread.

In that thread you said this "Nv drivers really are a set it and forget type of experience. It's such a contrast."

Do you still find that true?

Does EVGA void warranties If I replace TIM while still using the stock cooler (until I save the cash for a block)?
