lol could be. mine was a bit worse though. I'm reading a book in the corner and the pc would turn on by itself. it spooked me at first but the 2nd,3rd and nth time it happened I figured there was something wrong with the board. brought it to where I bought it, they tested it and alas it did turn on by itself and my room isn't haunted lol

I would however get the 7970 instead of the GTX 670. Since you are going with a waterblock anyhow, there is no point to getting the already cool GTX 670. Plus the 7970 can achieve higher overclocks.
I would recommend getting either of these, mainly because they are both GHz edition chips

The reason I went with the EVGA is because it was the 4gb version the good looks was a bonus i guess haha

I do agree with the 7970's instead of the gtx 670 4gb. even in multi-monitor gaming 3GB is the sweet spot. you're gonna pay a premium for those 4gb cards and the 7970's comes with a 3GB by default. will be cheaper and will perform better than a gtx 680 possibly even the 4GB variant

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tq2BOlE1VQw linus bench marked them( 2gb version) and compared to other GPUs the 670 did better then the 7970 in most cases

especially in battlefield 3

then you haven't heard of the catalyst 12.11 drivers then. the performance increase they got with those drivers are absolutely beastly. tbh I have no reason to defend amd cards ( I actually have a gtx 680 and a gtx 670) I just say it the way I see it man. there's a ton of reviews about the 12.11 drivers try looking them up. youd be surprised with the performance gain esp in BF3.(20-30% increase in performance which is crazy!) nvidia is trying hard to release better drivers to combat the 12.11's but they've been releasing terrible drivers lately. you can feel that they want to outdo them in drivers but are failing miserably

okay with that being said which GPU do you feel has better hardware just in case either 1 messes up or does good on their newest drivers.

definitely amd cards. there's still a lot of potential to be unlocked with those cards imho. they're much powerful cards even with GGPU workloads. nvidia cards are more focused on gaming I do feel it would be hard to squeeze out more performance with the kepler cards with the way it's going.

the irony is amd cards are cheaper! from where I'm from a 7970 is cheaper than a gtx 670 2GB variant and it outperforms a gtx 680. get two 7970's and never look back. it's an awesome deal and provides very good price:performance

btw a regular 7970 isn't any different from the ghz version. just a tweak bios. if you want to save money then get the regular 7970 and overclock it. both will have the same max overclocks so basically the same card just made prettier with the bios
