ASUS GTX 580 DirectCU II or EVGA GTX 580 SC?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I just got my EVGA GTX 580 SC (797MHz) today, but the ASUS GTX 580 DirectCU II (782MHz Triple Slot Monster w/ backplate and highflow bracket) will be coming out shortly. Should I keep the EVGA or should I sell it for the ASUS GTX 580 DirectCU II?

your imagination is on point since the asus directcu II card does require two 8-pin power connectors, more power means more juice!

Considering the backplate and high flow bracket are pretty much useless marketing gimmicks while the Asus has an aftermarket cooler, it's a pretty easy choice...
