Best GTX...

Hi Guys,

I have several PC's and for one of them (Asus P5Q Deluxe + Intel E8400 + 2GB + 2HD Raid 0 + XP Pro SP3) I want to replace my old Twintech 9600GT (to use it elsewhere).

I'm only a casual gamer so my preference goes at this time to the Asus GTX650Ti-1GD5.

Is it a good choice among all the GTX models?

It's a Cooler Master Centurion 5 and the HDD's are just behind the GC.

Only Asus and MSI use a PWM fan (4 pins).

By the way, how to know the number of VRM phases used?

Thanks, but the Direct CU model is too long for my PC case...
I just picked the Asus card with a review on here all of the models are more or less the same. Overclocking is pretty limited on the IMO even the stock cooler is plenty if a bit noisy.
