I have also to tell you that here in France the price between the TOP and non TOP version is 70€ (= $88.2).
Non TOP is 419€ ($527.94), and TOP is 489€ ($616.14)
And also, is the factory OC 1137Mhz with
GPU Boost enabled or not ?
Thank you all !
The factory OC does not include the GPU Boost, so final GPU clock speeds are going to be higher. Mine was originally 1255 MHz at full load.

If I had to choose between the TOP or non-TOP, I would get the non-TOP. My TOP that I have originally had stability issues right out of the box (currently running -15 MHz GPU offset). The non-TOP is cheaper and has less chance of stability issues at stock speeds due to its lower clocks. The only difference between the TOP and non-TOP are clock speeds (the PCB, heatsink cooler, backplate are the same between the two).
However, if I were going SLI, I would probably get the EVGA FTW to avoid re-circulating warm air between the two graphics cards.
