retiring my MSI 780, look at evga 1070s

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sad to see my one mighty MSI 780 Gaming OC fall to the wayside, but its place in the sun is over. Looking at the evga 1070s, which will be installed in my sig rig. I really wanted to stay with MSI as my last 3 gcards from them served me well, but their 11" 1070 cards are too long for my case (please no comments about this, I got my reasons). I got my sites on the evga FTW gtx 1070 with its 10 phase power, but does this really matter over the 4 stage power of the SC model? The higher out-of-box clock of the FTW is meaninglessly small in comparison to the SC, so IMO it's really a wash, and I could care less about the LED of the FTW. I may OC and I may not, never had much real luck with any OC of any prior gcard. Sure I could hit higher bench scores, but for RL use the OCs usually failed eventually. So it comes down to the 10 phase power and can't forget the dual bios option (but I've only dabbled with custom bios installs), are these feature worth the extra cost?

The FTW offers a little extra OC room, but not much at all. Honestly, at this point, I'd say get which ever GTX 1070 you can get cheaper. They all perform about the same.

This, unless you have a windowed case and want a specific color scheme there is not enough difference in performance to justify going with a top dollar Pascal card. I'd just look for a card with good cooling.

Thanks for the feedback. Got the evga SC card installed, it's so nice to buy local. This 1070 smokes my 780 by an unbelievable margin. I don't think any single gcard upgrade has been this dramatic for me. So far, so good..no coil whine and complete silence (other than my case and cooler fans). Nice to back to evga, last card of theirs I had was a 8800 gts 512.
