[Various] GTX 760 Reviews - Page 56

post #551 of 571
I'm in the market for a factory overclocked blower model. I have the Obsidian 550D case which being a silent case has a carefully balanced airlow and won't work so well for general overclocking if I put in a GPU that blows back into the case. So, with that said, what is the general consensus so far on the best GTX 760 OC blower model ? I'm looking at this

EVGA usually makes the best blower cards.

That's a reference model with 4+2 VRM configuration, which is OK but not optimal.

The best choice for a blower model is the EVGA GTX 760 Superclocked (model 02G-P4-2762-KR), which has a custom PCB with a 5+2 VRM setup.

not much of an upgrade from a 7870 GE but it is technically an upgrade.

BF4 a Radeon game, and how do most of those other Radeon games fair with nVidia cards..?
Crysis 3 to name one...

Thanks, ordered on amazon.

coming from a 460, anything would be an upgrade tongue.gif

This actually looks pretty good. I think I might actually buy one of these as a stopgap while finishing saving for other parts of the system.

It had been a bit hard finding cards that could do 1440p with max settings for $300 or under.
