Buying a gtx 1070 but don't know some of the brands

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I really hope this doesn't start any arguments.

As title says I am looking at gtx 1070s. I have never brought an nvidia card before I have always been Radeon/amd. Long story short.

Inno3d
Palit
Gainward
Kfa2

Are these brands any good? Any I should avoid?

Thanks for any help

Palit usually make decent cards with decent power setups making them decent overclockers. They are usually a good value buy from what I've seen in the past.
Inno3d and Gainward also make decent products.

Haven't much about Kfa2, we don't get them where I am.

If i had to choose, i'd pick one of those:

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW Gaming
MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 AMP

solid overclockers with good VRM design.
Don't know how much the price difference to the brands you mentioned is in your country, but here it's only ~30-40EUR thumb.gif

Lol Fylzka he gave 4 options and you chose 0 of them.

Might be good to look at the depths of the cards, the Palit card is 3 slots deep, might stop you from using one of the PCIe slots that will be covered.

There is a comparison table here that covers all the cards mentioned in this thread so far. (EVGA, MSI, ZOTAC, GAINWARD, PALIT, INNO3D).

Might help you make a decision based on what power connectors you have, slots available, clock speeds etc.

Are EVGA available. They'd be the go to brand from Nvidia. Although if they're expensive and you're looking for cheaper options, I'd look at Zotac, MSI and Gigabyte. I'd avoid Asus as even a rock is better at Customer service than them.

sorry for not replying sooner. Coffee didn't kick in fast enough. I was asking about them 4 as they are the cheapest in my area. I am very temped by the evga gtx1070 sc. just thought I would find out about the other brands

Edit: I think I should have worded differently. I was looking for there reputations with the ocn community

If getting the EVGA for additional cost is not a huge problem, I'd get EVGA

kfa is galax I think.

palit & inno3d usually offers somewhat cheaper prices compare to msi/gigabyte/evga.

if u're picking the EVGA card definetly get the FTW.
The SC got a 4+1 phase VRM, the FTW a 10+2 phase and therefore way more overclocking capability. the price difference is 10EUR

Absolutely not true. VRM design on the 1070 has precisely zero affect on overclocking capabilities. It comes down to luck temperature.
