Which GTX 780 Brand/Model/Cooler?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to grab a new GTX 780 and will use the aftermarket cooler that comes with it (not planning to add a water block). My current rig is in my sig and I plan to play Crysis 3, BF4, and other high end games on a 1080p monitor and possibly upgrade to a 1440p like the QNIX QX2710 Evolution II. I will overclock as high as I can and may SLI with another card in the future. I'm torn between which of the following cards to get...

EVGA GTX780 SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooler

Gigabyte GTX780 OC WF Rev. 2

MSI N780 TF OC

Galaxy GeForce GTX 780 HOF


I didn't list the ASUS GTX780 Direct CU II, the EVGA GTX780 Classified w/ ACX Cooler, or the MSI N780 Lightning because they were quite a bit more expensive. I'm open to those as suggestions but only if there is some real justification. Thanks for the help!

Honestly If I were living in USA, I would always get Evga GPUs.

I would probably pick the HOF over the other three but if you want the best warranty and support (for GPUs at least) go EVGA. thumb.gif

Id get the Galaxy HOF only because it seems like theyre the only ones that bin high quality chips - and it seems like users overclock line up with that statement.

I was leaning toward the HOF but wasn't sure about jumping on the Galaxy wagon. Anyone had much experience with Galaxy cards?
