Switched to the following recently, since my pny gtx 460 couldn't handle multiplayer on bf3 (even on low) and had issues loading/stuttering on the campaign. Rma'd it once, got another one back and same thing. I'm regretting not getting a 560 ti sooner. Had similar issues with a pair of pny 8800gtx's a while back. Only common denominator is the brand.is

The PNY and EVGA cards are no different. Reference is reference. Anecdotal evidence to say otherwise is just that.

To the OP, the Hawk for $139 is your best bet. Much better cooling.
