GeForce GTX 670: Which vendor?

I was heading for the EVGA GeForce GTX 670, and I just wanted to make sure here what peoples opinions are on different vendors.
My friend said Asus and MSI are the best you can get, but to me, EVGA looks like the XFX of nvidia. I picked the EVGA side, because the cooler looked cool and would suit my case. I don't know if it's loud/hot.
Also, I'm pretty sure I'm fine, but will my power supply be sufficient for this upgrade?

I've always been happy with my eVGA cards. It's practically the only "brand" that I buy of video cards.

I have an EVGA 670 that is quiet up until about 70% fan speed and is not bad at all then. It idles at 29-30 and maxes out at 65 during stress testing.

I agree with you eVGA is like XFX of Nvidia. Also, your PSU will be sufficient for this card to perform at its best.
