    Which GTX 760

    Scan is selling a few GTX 760's from around £197-210.
    The cheapest is the PNY gtx 760 and from what i can see it is using the reference cooler? So all PNY has done is stick a sticker over it?

    Scan offers a 36 month warranty if purchased as well so is there any reason to spend more to get the EVGA/MSI GTX 760 which also seems to be using the reference cooler.

    PNY GeForce GTX 760 XLR8 Graphics Card - 2GB - GF760GTX2GEPB (£197)

    2GB EVGA GeForce GTX 760 - 02G-P4-2760-KR (£207)

    Wow, thank you for clearing that up in an instant.
    What causes the performance loss? the components or cooler?
    How do you know if it is a reference card?

    Re: Which GTX 760

    Most reference cards have poor coolers / heat dissipation on them, ASUS do the DIRECT CU II Top version of this card.

    Best graphics cooling system on a card that I have ever had.

    Palit 760 jetstream seems decent, just it only has a 2 year warranty compared to the other 3 year warranties at scan.

    Re: Which GTX 760

    I generally tend to avoid the Palit cards as they generally run hotter than all the others (in my experiance, this might not be the case anymore).

    Re: Which GTX 760

    If you want the best performance it's usually the Asus cards that are best.
    Gigabyte do well and their cooling is supposed to be great. They have a UK rma depot although if you're buying from scan it's a moot point.

    So Asus, Gigabyte or EVGA FTW (even better with dual fans) cards

    Re: Which GTX 760

    I would probably go with gigabyte as all will be the same actual card and have pretty much the same results once over clocked ,so I would go with gigabyte as there warrentys are really good and UK RMA and there cooling is usually one of the best too

    Re: Which GTX 760

    Are EVGA ACX cards any good? Just read the review, seems to be highly rated but I prefer real world feedback before I make an upgrade.

    It's more or less on par with a GTX 670, for less money, and overclocks pretty well too. What's not to like? I'm a big fan of EVGA - they treat you like a grown up and don't tear up your warranty when you fit a waterblock.

    Re: Which GTX 760

    Although obviously if you were to buy a waterblock you wouldn't get the ACX version.

    +1 for EVGA, their support is excellent, products well made and warranty good as well (register it when you get it) - The trade up system is also pretty cool.

    True, there's little point in coughing up for fancy cooler, but it's still worthwhile going for a factory overclocked card and then watercooling it.

    Re: Which GTX 760

    By the reviews I'd go for the Gigabyte windforce card. Good overclock but with low noise and temps. Seems the best balanced version to me.
    Also I had a Gigabyte GTX460 and it was rock solid. 'Upgraded' to a GTX570 Twin Frozer from MSI which is so much louder (yet still runs hot) when gaming that I don't think I'd buy another MSI card or product again.
