Evga GeForce GTX 670 FTW

100% Positive Reviews


Pros: Performance is near 680, best price/performance ratio you can get, Nvidia Drivers.

Cons: Run's hotter than other aftermarket coolers. May want more juice for 1440p+

I switched to this card from an AMD 6950 Crossfire setup. I was riddled with driver problems. I crashed on a weekly basis due to the AMD drivers. I could not overclock well and the Crossfire was the worst purchase I've ever made. I'm experienced with drivers and how to uninstall/install them correctly. I was plagued by AMD's drivers.

I switched to the 670 FTW 2GB and it beat the performance of my 6950 crossfire. I do not crash anymore and now believe in Nvidia's drivers. I have never crashed due to the card or drivers after the switch.

The card plays any modern game at max settings. Only Crisis 3 and Far Cry 3 have really challenged this thing. It ran Metro: Last Light like a hot knife through butter.
This card is still, in my opinion, the best price/performance ratio you can get, for gaming. I don't have any experience with it, but have done research and concluded that this card scales really well in a SLI setup.

The only con I have with this card is that it runs hotter than other cooler set ups. This is just preference, the card is built to take the heat. This also may not be enough juice to keep a solid 60 frames on 1440p+ resolutions on graphic intensive games.

I have zero regrets buying this card and highly recommend it. It is night and day better than my old setup. Good luck with your purchases. thumb.gif

PROs :-

1- Runs quiet.
2- Draws less power than the competing AMD cards.
3- Better binned GPUs than the reference EVGA GTX 670s.
4- Mine did overclock very well 1360 MHz (@1.21mV) & 7430 MHz memory.
5- Performance is very decent.
6- Support a new Anti-aliasing technology TXAA which is exclusive to GTX 600 series.
7- 2 GB VRAM is decent for unmodded games and 1080p resolution.

CONs :-

1- Runs alittle bit hot.
2- Cannot compete with Tahiti cards at high resolutions especially when the latters are overclocked, and the gap gets further with games relies heavily on bandwidth (Sleeping Dogs, Metro2033, Crysis 1/ Warhead ... etc)
3- Costs higher than HD7950 and about the same as HD7970 but it can't compete with HD7970, also the HD7950 when overclocked can easily beat it at a lower price, not to mention the extra 1 GB VRAM.
4- 2 GB VRAM might be a limiting factor in future games and modded games.
