Update card arrived

What made you pick Asus card? Why not a ZOTAC card?

Zotac is more expensive than the asus card and more noisy compared to asus + asus has a quiet setting,bios so as somone mentioned you don't have to deal with custom fan curves

I finally didn't wanted a, lets be fair a card that uses more close to 50 watt then 100 watt more power, nvidia has been more stable for me and a little lower noise from nvidia compared to an asus rx 7700 xt or 7800 xt tuf, i think those cards might more needs 3 fans then 2

Lets be honest, i choose it over 16gb vram because of lower power consumption and because of stability, i just hope stability continues with the 4000 card as i experienced with my 3060, stability is for me a higher priority than 4gb more ram or 10-15 extra fps
