I'd be happy with either.

I'm now deciding between the MSI and Gigabyte cards, and they are identically priced, with identical warranties. I don't have a window in my case, so I can't even take into account aesthetics...

Still, thanks for all the input so far, everyone!
IF I had an MSI I would give a fair assessment.

Sadly in the past 12 months and 11 Maxwell cards I've not had a MSI/Galax or Palit branded card, sorry.

Honestly from MY experience with Maxwell and reading maaaaaaaaaaany threads. Yer average non-reference card will not disappoint you UNLESS you expect 1600/8400 at 1.2v with 50% fan speed and an ASIC of 90.3%............................ Me? I'm a realist. wink.gif

I have the MSI (not Lightning) and love it. Just a great card.

I had an issue with Dual-DVI on my G1 but only on windows 10, with windows 7 the problem never comes up. Even then I only had an issue after a driver UPDATE, not a fresh install. When I did a swap out with my old 760 it ran fine until the driver updated, then upon reboot my second DVI screen would say "No Input" but on a fresh driver install it was fine.
