Which 670 Should I Get?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello

I am unsure on which 670 to get for my gaming computer (1080p 23.6inch monitor), I was leaning towards the GB OC Edition 670, but some people seemed disappointed with it, and some people say that the surplus of fans will cause one of them to fail within a year..Thoughts?

I will be buying this card in a week most likely, should I wait for the 4gb 670? does anyone have any info on those? I may go 2 monitors in the future.

Thanks!

is it worth the extra $20 over the GB OC 670?

does anyone know anything about the 4gb 670s?

Isn't the DCII going to be a 3 slot card? No thanks for me since I would like to SLI. Otherwise great choice. I bought the Windforce. 5-6C cooler at around the same fan speed. I heard the noise isn't any quieter though.

 

Oh forget the 4GB version. You are gaming on a 1080p screen and 2GB will be plenty of VRAM.

I have the gigabyte windforce in my cart right now. Should I wait for the Direct CU top or just order this? The DCUII is only 2 slots for the 670, iirc:

Holy Moly, I stand corrected! It is a 2 slot card! And it looks sexy as hell. Props to Asus making a DCII finally a 2 slot card.

yeah its a 2 slot card smile.gif plus its significantly quieter than the reference 670. And i may go two 1080p monitors in the future, although slim chance. So should I jump on that asus? is it for the extra $20 over the windforce? Also, where can i buy the asus card? its not on newegg
