ASUS DCU II TOP seems to be everyone's favorite
yeah but the guy in this thread showed his temps, they weren't that great... and seeing as i'm putting my cards in a case with little airflow i need cooler cards... DC2T just seems to be a better choice currently. i had a twin frozr 7850, it was great, temps never went above 60C while overclocked to 1050mhz, and all the reviews for the gtx 700 series twin frozrs had them being the coolest, but this 280x is at best average, at worst the worst cooled 280x...
and yeah i was also thinking about getting MSI graphics cards and a g45 or gd65 gaming mobo, a few months ago i was set on sli 760s, now crossfire 280x is looking like a much better deal, unless they drop the 4gb 760s to 250-260. or maybe i'll just get a 290x *shrugs*Edited by VegetarianEater - 10/14/13 at 6:51pm
