    my cousin or what he is asked me about which GTX 670 to take he run single monitor Samsung 24inch LED through DVI and he asked me about a Gigabyte GV N670OV-2GB and i said there is also the Asus GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 and the MSI N670GTX PE 2GD5/OC.

    at a price range of 523USD (Asus) / 507USD (Gigabyte) / 570USD (MSI)

    with Gigabyte being the cheapest and MSI as the most expensive i have seen ppl here on TPU buying and likes the Asus and Gigabyte GTX670's but not MSI's version of the GTX670.

    personally i can't choose for him since i think all of them r really cool looking and great performance GTX670 cards.

    i guided him to give him the idea of taking a custom made GTX670 with a custom cooler and pcb to get a cold running card he will put in his pc running with a i7-2600, 8gb memory (if i am not wrong) and a P67 or Z68 chipset.

    he wants something powerful and he got his mind on the gtx670 and he ain't a overclocker.

    i reviewed all of them, and i'm using the asus in my pc and would buy one any day.

    i've heard of issues with turbo boost clocking the DC II TOP too high, so check for stability after you get the card.

    Asus or Gigabyte you can't go wrong with either one, Msi is to expensive.

    Has to be Nvidia?

    MSi 7950 tf3 is almost dirt cheap now, ~$320USD A/R, and they are using 7970 boards with an extra VRM :pimp: Maybe something to consider?

    Not trying to start a flame/argument, just throwing it out there as i think $$$/performance is hard to pass up :eek:

    nope in the DK they ain't and the GTX670 is good.

    MasterInvader i have gotten told more than once that 4gb isn't worth it when u don't go over 1920x1080 so will tell him to get 2gb.

    and for the other replies i will see what he want when he have through it over and i may have pushed him in the right direction ;)
