Gigabyte GTX 670 also has a GTX 680 PCB & $370 after rebate also but EVGA customer service is probably better between the 2 thinking.gif

If you want to watercooling your system, grab a FTW, if not grab a windforce.

I'm starting to move away from the Gigabyte card mainly because my rig will be a black, red and, white color scheme. At first I thought I could use a full-cover waterblock and have a backplate on it to hide the blue but I think I'll make my life easeir by going with the EVGA card or the HIS card... Both seem to be really nice cards... UGH THE DECISION IS SO HARD! tongue.gif

Interesting...mainly because GB 670 using 680 PCB...So the card will be able to use the WB from 680.
