It is true that price/performance the 660 might be a bit better, but I personally prefer 670 over it.

If ou have the money get the 4GB version. If not 2GB will be fine too. Both decisions will make you happy

4GB version is good if you have multiple monitors. Keep in mind. If you will be gaming in 1080p for the next 2 years than perpahs 2GB is the better option.

Thanks thumb.gif - Will take a closer look, would really like to see some OC result on the 4GB, if the memory is the same etc ..

670 2gb usually OCs better than the 670 4gb though.

Yeah but what I said is not really a fact, but from what I see over OCN or other sites that the 2GB ocs better than the 4GB.

 

However you might get a DUD 670 2GB and it might not OC well at all, or perhaps you might get a golden 4gb and can OC amazingly. Its a lottery really.

 

I used to own a GIgabyte 670 OC and without tweaking the voltage I could hot 1200mhz. This was already an OCed GPU

 

My current Zotac 670 4GB which is not factory OCed also gives me 1200mhz without voltage tweaking.

 

Go figure :)

hahaha :)

 

Its jut that OCing with Kepler GPUs are a lottery really.

 

You have a higher chance of getting a better OC result with a 2GB GPU rather than a 4GB GPU though.

 

However 670 is already strong. Unless you care about benchmark results in 3Dmark11 or Heaven, you will still be fine in games weather you OC a lot or a little.

How can it be that the chances is bigger with the 2GB than the 4GB ? - I think that its true, because we have seen it before, but dont think it make much sense ....

Hope to win the lottery when I buy smile.gif

Okay so I will be pulling the trigger on a 670 this week. Is there any model you guys recommend over another? Also I will be watercooling it eventually so I would need one that is compatible with the waterblocks out there. I've been looking at the EVGA FTW model of course and have had MSI cards in the past that have been great.
