Default Re: which video card version is better

well. i'll say great choice of hardware..

talking about the graphic cards:
the cards are pretty much the same, other then the shield and cooler.
i'll say go with the asus. that cooler is great.
it is a little less noisy then others (even with 2 fan, they are running at a lower RPM) and it is cooling good.

No problem. ^^
the socket 1155 is actually the new one. (if not talking about the extreme chipset that are using the 2011 socket)
so you are not choosing anything outdated.

btw: your links are broken.
