    Ah yeah .. join us as we review and benchmark the ASUS GeForce GTX 760 MARS. Now you'd think this is a beefed up GTX 760, but the secret sauce really is that it has two 760 GPUs. Yup, the ASUS GeForc...

    Very nice card.. Now they just have to get the price right. And yeah seeing 3GB or 4GB on this card would've been nice.

    Awesome card, highly innovative from ASUS' side. However like everyone else has mentioned, they need to get the price right. At 600 EUR this would be a miss.

    I don't get this reward. Why is this a Top Pick if (according to the review) the price is too high, it cannot compete with other cards in that segment and it doesn't have enough memory?

    Yeah tricky, I understand your comment as I have been doubting myself on the award. Price is still TBA and I have a gut feeling that it will be much lower then indicated. Overall it is an excellent build / piece of hardware for those gaming on a single Full HD or WQHD monitor.

    But pricing will be the decisive factor though, if above 500 EUR when I'll very likely alter the award status into something more appropriate.

    If ASUS prices this right it could be a great card but I expect $599 retail in the states which means 780 is the better option.

    Pretty sweet card! The price is way out there on planet Mars though. If they price this right to me would be around $500.00 USD this card is a true winner! This is a perfect solution to all the guys out there that refuse to go SLI (like me) while still getting SLI performance. I can honestly see myself buying this card a year from now for $350.00- $400.00 CAD! Easy peassy, sell my 760 on eBay for $100.00 take that off the price of this card and bam! SLI for under 3 bills....

    Dude this card is SLI it's just on one card. And no $500 still isn't a good price. IMO it should not be prices over $450 because a 780 overclocked can out perform this overclocked and has 1GB more VRAM.

    Just out of curiosity how much did you pay retail for the 670 SLI set up you have in your system specs?

    Just to keep you honest:

    http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=43_1200_557_559&item_id=049483

    Even months after release your card retails for: $449 CAD before mail in rebate. Multiply that x 2 for SLI and you're looking at $889.00 CAD

    You are hardly one to talk about a card costing too much money!!

    Hilbert,

    If it's not too much to ask but, would you consider doing a power to performance ratio graph from next year on? I know there are source that follow this trend already but it would be really nice to have this info all in one review rather than trying to search for it on the web.

    Nice review btw!!

    How exactly does linking to Canada Computers keep someone in the US "honest"? Prices in the US, aren't based on what Canada Computers is selling something for. lol

    I can pickup a pair of brand new eVGA GTX670 FTW Edition cards for SLI for $600 locally ($635.98 after tax, to be exact).

    On average the prices are pretty close to each other after you convert the exchange rate. Sure ,you can always find cheaper deals locally in some mum and pop shop but the average Joe surfin the net for prices will be hard pressed finding brand new $450 VGA card for 3 bills...

    MSI 670 $249.99

    I'd also like to point out how you cherry picked the 670 on the Canada Computers website. There's 670's for over $100 less on than the one you linked. You seriously need to stop posting nonsense, it's getting beyond a joke. We all know you love your 760, but it isn't always the best option for the price range.

    $300 per card is high. I can find GTX670's all day long for less than $400

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709 600311820&IsNodeId=1

    MSI GTX670 PE goes for $269.99 full price, currently on sale for $249.99
    Asus GTX670 DC2 is $299.99 full price.
    Gigabyte GTX670 WF2 is $329.99 full price.
    If you don't mind "open box" or "refurb" you can get as low as $230 rather easily for an eVGA GTX670 FTW...

    Those are prices that "average Joe" will find by "surfin the net"....and they're quite a bit below $450.

    GTX760 only goes for $250 to $320. So, anything over $500 isn't worth it.

    If you want SLI and have space limitations, it's not a bad option for $450-500....at any price higher than that though, it's a rip off.

    You're pretty annoying to be honest. You throw out wrong information, get corrected, then shift to something else that is completely unrelated.

    My cards cost $440 each without shipping to my country. So I personally think the R9-290 at $400 is too underpriced /sarcasm

    Not to mention that the cheaper 760's are reference designs. The $250 670's all have solid non-reference cooling solutions.
