Is it worth getting the Signature 2 for $20 more or should I stick with the other one ?

Well, there's not much difference. I'd think that the more expensive one would make slightly less noise, and a little more cooling, because it has two fans. But you should check out some reviews about noise and cooling for the cards to see how much the difference really is.

If you are in the $529 range, might as well go with a Gigabybte Windforce cooler. Much better than the stock one

Or the MSI Twin Frozr Which has a 6% off and mail in rebate
