The main differences with the SC+ and FTW+ is that SC+ is reference design while FTW isn't. Not a big deal as you can mod your vBIOS to allow more power. But secondly - though this is luck of the draw more than anything else - you may get better OC headroom with FTW.
Neither card has cherry picked chips but if you look around the FTW has better OC.
The FTW also has a better cooler, as far as I know.

Yeah what others are saying, it'll run cooler plus it has a backplate.

Sounds like the FTW is the one. Would 175$ be a resonable price to ask for my 570's maybe 320$ if someone buys both of them. I don't really know what their going for now.

I sold my 580 locally for 300$ like a month ago.

I just pulled the trigger. EVGA 670 4gb FTW. I almost ordered 2 of them but figured I should tryout 1 first and compare to the 2 570s and see how much 4gb can help compared to more raw power.

You won't regret it. Had there been a FTW model when I ordered my SC+ cards I would have jumped on them in a heartbeat!

I've been running this Galaxy 670 4GB for a couple months at 2560x1440 resolution and it kicks serious butt.

The stock cooler is *super* quiet (even at load) and the card would occasionally break 75C max temps but no higher. That said, I immediately strapped an Antec 620 water cooler on it and it now maxes around 47C to 49C no matter the application. I've managed a rock solid overclock of 1250 on the core which is just fine for me ... but others have taken them much higher.

Great card:



...

got mine at NewEgg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162118

Good luck

GTX 670 FTW, hands down the best out of all of them.
Plus since you're planning on SLI it's nice that they are blower-style coolers (and wont dump heat all over each-other).

This is what I just upgraded to from a 2GB GTX 670. I spend 3 days reading reviews and seems to be the best choice now, especially if you ever decide to SLI.
