asus and EVGA are both great companies. I would get the fastest one you can afford. also if you are going evga, its a must to get the ACX one.

If you decide on an EVGA card, go directly through EVGA, they don`t charge any tax ( in the US anyway ) and shipping for my 760 4GB SC wACX was only $4.99.

I would get this one you chose, I think it`s the best looking card on the planet, next to the 690.

I have no idea why the Asus version is close to $700, somethings wrong there.

The one Solar mentioned has put up great numbers, just ask Paulpicks21, he just got one.

I have an EVGA GTX 760 wACX cooling and it`s pretty sweet. But I`m stepping up to the reference 770. The only issue I see with the EVGA 780 wACX cooling is it`s open all the way around and the heat just gets blown right into your case. That`s why I opted to go with the blower style EVGA GTX 770.

They wouldn`t let me Stepup to the card I wanted. ( stupid huh ) So I`ll have to buy that one outright or hope Santa puts it under the tree

I`m sure Tommy would agree with me and you should get at least a good 750 watt psu.

I read some reviews on Newegg about the Galaxy HOF and apparently the VRM catches on fire. But that card does actually looks nice.

I changed my mind on the HOF today, I did a lot of temp monitoring and it's running much hotter than I thought. Along with the issue you mentioned and a couple of other things so I have sent it back.

I too am looking for a 780 now. The Evga classified looks nice to me but I have not made my mind up yet.

Well let's hope the classified one does a good job like the HOF

By the time if any I ever get around the TI's might be something to look for too

I believe the TI's are released tomorrow. It will be interesting to see how they perform but they are too expensive.
