Looking for a 4gb 670.

Zotac is avaiable but i dont have experience with this company.

any pro/cons ?

i heard that the 4gb version has no FPS gain at all unless you go to some crazy resolutions it only has an effect.... 2gb should be just fine tho

Ive had a couple Nvidia Cards , and always Stuck with EVGA , and the major brands Zotac , is the we cut corners and cheat people out of money , brand.

If you really want to know go on a site like Newegg look up some Zotac Products. Compare them to EVGA products as far as RMA numbers , Returns , ETC

I never had any Zotac product to fail on me. I am not sure how well Zotac compare to EVGA but i think they are a pretty decent company although yes i do know that most people go with EVGA but i really dont see anything going wrong with a zotac product.. since you will be going with a considered big purchase such as a GTX 670, i would rather go with a more secure, trusted and known company.. which is EVGA, that is just to be on the safe side. if it was a lower end product, Zotac should serve you well. but meh... high end products... i'd rather wait and stick with the big brands. better safe than sorry smile.gif i hope that helps to make your mind with your choice. good luck and have fun with that beast graphic card. thumb.gif

i owned a pair of zotac gtx 480's and they were perfectly fine. just make sure to register for the warranty.

Zotac also offers a lifetime warranty on their GTX 600 series. EVGA does not! Something to consider.

Not that it makes them any better of a company but Zotac also usually has a large presence at public events such as PAX. It does seem nice they care to chat w/ their customers face to face though.
