EVGA 670 FTW Purchase Advice

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Im going to buy this card soon, but saw it on newegg with dual fans for 400.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130843

came across this from PCCG

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20330

now would it matter if i brought from the American Store Newegg, could i still use it properly in my PC, and do you think the Dual Fans would be better, im pretty certain there same specs smile.gif.

EVGA has better core clock and boost clock, or wouldn't it matter so much.

The FTW Signature 2 has got some pretty good reviews , basically it's a hybrin exhaust\dual fan cooler , and it's boost clock is pretty damned high , i may go as far as to say that it matches the 680 at stock clocks , it's cool and quiet too , a mate of mine bought one of these whereas i went for the Asus DC2 , i can safely say that they are identical in temps and noise , although mine did cost a lot less thumb.gif

Yeah i went to Scorptec today for advice, the guy who i spoke to was very friendly and honest about his opinions as i had information i looked up traveling there before hand, do you regret buying the ASUS since the EVGA is better, or it does not bother you?.

I don't regret it one bit , my friend's card hits the OC cap at 1230 mine was still stable when going 1290 smile.gif Plus , mine looks a lot cooler and fits the entire theme of my pc smile.gif I didn't have the required money to buy the FTW SIg 2 but even if i did i would have still gone for the asus but that's a personal thing though , the Sig 2 is a hell of a card still smile.gif

You can't go wrong with either cards , i believe you will be paying a lot of customs if you're ordering from america plus the currency difference between USD and AUSD? I too am from australia and had a really bad time ordering from europe .
