If you want to water cool your GPU then go with EVGA. You can also use a universal GPU block with some copper heatsink on non-reference GPU.

I'm telling you from my experience from the Asus cards. They don't have a high OC ceiling. As I said before, I had to RMA BOTH of my Asus DCII's. In fact, after I got one back, I sold it to my buddy, and HE had to RMA it after a month.

3 RMA's in 2 months... not a good track record from someone who has actually owned a couple or 3.

Well then, hopefully that won't happened to me. ASUS GTX 460 user here (Openbox). So far so good.

You do realize that your experience alone isn't enough to label ASUS bad you know.

Mind if I ask why you had to RMA them? Just because they didn't OC very well? Or was there actually something wrong with the cards?

At this point, I think I'm going to end up going with the Nvidia card. I checked on the EVGA and it showed unavailable for shipping to the store at the moment. I have the advantage of being able to check the regional warehouse, and that was empty!sadsmiley.gif I was leaning toward the ASUS card originally because of it's stock cooling system, but the more I think about it, the more intrigued I am by liquid cooling. It definitely wouldn't be a while until I set up a liquid setup, but I like having more options when I do. Thanks for all the help guys, I'll let everyone know if I change my mind again.

Ram failures. I was getting odd color artifacts, even when the cards were running at decent temperatures...
