MSI is the best performing of those four, however if you are in the USA EVGA has by far the best warranty and service of any major.

I'd stay away from the Asus and Gigabyte. They are great cards but if you want the best regardless of money they are not the brand for you.

I have both the ASUS DIRECTCUII and the MSI twin frozen II and I can tell you that both work stable on 1GHz configs with 1.123V but temp wise the MSI def wins.

ASUS full load: 75 C @ 60% fan
MSI full load: 69 C @ 60 % fan

I got the Raven RV3, so its a lot because of the case too.

The MSI is also a lot quitter man. My asus u can hear a little more. But I'm using ASUS since the MSI was for my mates build, so I had it (sorry) and tested it.

The reason I got the Asus now is it was on sale. But performance wise the are both kickass products!

Asus Uses SmartDoctor: A good & easy way of overclocking, but the MSI afterburner is WAY easier and safer imo.

So go for MSI if not the asus is on a sale

Ok MSI seems good, i was just a bit worried because so many ppl seemed to have problems with it, but it is on a bit of a special so i guess ill go for it,
especially if its quieter than the asus.
the MSI will cost me like the same amount. $321 with shipping
and the asus is $319 with shipping

i just wish they gave a diff mini hdmi to hdmi adapter that one doesnt fit so i have to shave it off a bit bt it wont kill me so its kwl

Im in SA so dont be alarmed by the $ amount, damn exchange rate
Thanks for the help guys appreciate it

Im not sure if hes serious either, he does know that the MSI card is ONLY the quietest and the coolest, but nowhere near the best performing....right?

People were only having problems OC'ing on the old (i believe it was) X58 MSI motherboards, a problem with the VRM if my memory serves me right
