Windows 7: New GTX 670 Upgrade

Hi all,

I am sorry for posting in such an old thread but I finally got around too getting that new 670 (I didn't know it would be this long) and I figured I would post which on I got.

I ended up going with a factory overclocked 2GB Asus. I was originally going to go with the 4GB EVGA but then I realized that I only use one monitor and by the time games require 4GBs of dedicated memory, my card will probably already be out of date. I started looking at the EVGA 2GB FTW edition but then I read a few articles on the Asus Direct CU II cooling and found out that it is hands down one of the quietest GPU coolers. I then saw that the factory overclocked 2GB Asus was only $10 more than the EVGA that I was looking at, so I just had to go with it. I also got a $20 mail in rebate plus 5% off and Metro: Last Light for free, so I figured it was a pretty good deal.

Anyways, thanks for all the help guys I really appreciate it.

That's a nice upgrade JackALope, it should be at least twice the performance of your old card

When does she arrive?

Yeah I hope so. I ordered it from newegg earlier today and it only takes a few days for their shipments to make it to my house so hopefully it arrives by the end of the week. Oh I also got free shipping on it so that was another plus.
