What do you think about Gigabyte? I've been reading about the Gigabyte Windforce 670 OC edition, it looks like a nice card. Appearntly great temps with great performance.

This card, to be precise: GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - NVIDIA - PCI Express Solution - GeForce 600 Series - GV-N670OC-2GD

Both Ham-n-Eggs and I will be recommended an EVGA vidcard over ANY other brand. Without question, they are the best cards on the market and their customer service is outstanding. Don't get caught up in in the silly vendor numbers games because one card is 10MHz faster than another.

I did, but take a look at post #18, apparently Michael has read about some overheating issues with the EVGA 670 cards so he's uncomfortable with it.

@Michael....the best thing for you to do is Google reviews on various 670 cards from reputable websites, choose the ones you like, and then read customer reports and reviews on Newegg. You'll get a pretty good idea of what's best for you.
