came across this from PCCG

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20330

now would it matter if i brought from the American Store Newegg, could i still use it properly in my PC, and do you think the Dual Fans would be better, im pretty certain there same specs

The FTW Signature 2 has got some pretty good reviews , basically it's a hybrin exhaust\dual fan cooler , and it's boost clock is pretty damned high , i may go as far as to say that it matches the 680 at stock clocks , it's cool and quiet too , a mate of mine bought one of these whereas i went for the Asus DC2 , i can safely say that they are identical in temps and noise , although mine did cost a lot less

Yeah i went to Scorptec today for advice, the guy who i spoke to was very friendly and honest about his opinions as i had information i looked up traveling there before hand, do you regret buying the ASUS since the EVGA is better, or it does not bother you?.

I don't regret it one bit , my friend's card hits the OC cap at 1230 mine was still stable when going 1290

Plus , mine looks a lot cooler and fits the entire theme of my pc

I didn't have the required money to buy the FTW SIg 2 but even if i did i would have still gone for the asus but that's a personal thing though , the Sig 2 is a hell of a card still

You can't go wrong with either cards , i believe you will be paying a lot of customs if you're ordering from america plus the currency difference between USD and AUSD? I too am from australia and had a really bad time ordering from europe .

Another favorable vote for the EVGA 670 FTW! They are cool running, high overclocking cards. Backed by EVGA and their phenomenal customer service, I would have to see a lot of evidence against them not to continue buying their cards.

When I bought mine, it had a $20 Rebate, and I got it from Newegg. (combined with gift card, Newegg CC, and a discountcode iI paid $260 BNIB just a few weeks after release)
The rebate was offered by Newegg, through Newegg, but as a "Mfgr Rebate". Newegg refused to honor it, so I contacted EVGA after registering my card. I got a call back saying that they were extremely sorry for the inconvenience, and even tho they weren't actually behind the rebate, they would give me a $20 rebate as they realized that the way Newegg phrased it could be misleading and they "aren't going to screw over our customers because a retailer made a mistake".
A day later, I finally got Newegg to acknowledge that they screwed up (3rd time in ONE BUILD), and they credited my card the $20.
I could have gotten $40 in rebates, but I contacted EVGA (and had just received the fax with the rebate forms) and told them that Newegg owned up, and that I had been refunded the money and thus would not be filing a rebate claim with them. I thanked them for their incredible CS, and they actually offered me the rebate saying it was already approved and was valid. I just said that it didn't feel right, as the issue was handled by the proper party.

That's the kind of customer service I get from EVGA. Even when you don't compare them to EVGA, ASUS and MSI have laughably pathetic CS.

. The card is the most beautiful thing on the market. Keppler boost to 1220mhz or something. I REALLY like this card.

double post sorry when I bought my first GPU ever I had a user related error. I installed it in the wrong slot. But I called and hour later the rep said have you checked your installation? Well I hadn't and he was still very nice. I would have treated myself like a dumb ass but they were professional and I always go with them.
