    The cooler on the GTX670 PE from MSI is a very good cooler and at a great price.

    the 760 mars looks fun, like a dual 670 rig, gimmie 4gb version and I'd do it. however I'd sooner have a vanilla 780 tbh. it'll make for a nice card on the high street though, it would server a pc gaming noobster very well for up to a year perhaps, before too many games start using the uber textures no doubt, at least the AAA ones.

    Asus GTX 670 DirectCU mini costs 239 € (with the game bundle) here in Finland (including 24% VAT).


    According to Muropaketti.com the price is 619 €. If that is going to be the case, this shouldn't get any top picks in my opinion. It's not the most quiet card either and dual GPU solution is never as good thing as single GPU one with ~same speed. This also has only 2GB ram which is just too little for that price. It's going to be limited edition card so I really doubt that it would be less than 500 €. Something like Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz Edition is much better deal.

    2gb of ram isn't too little for that price it's too little for modern gaming, it's a freaking joke tbh, no futureproofing whatsoever, total waste imo.

    Paid $399 a piece for them over a year ago and at the time they were the second fastest cards avalible. What's your deal dude are you that jealous of us who have had this performance for over a year?

    Futureproofing by itself is a joke. We all know that in 6 or 7 months when the 20nm cards are coming out that a mid range card will be as fast or faster than the top dog right now.

    It's going to be a while before a mid-range card outperforms GTX780Ti....unless Maxwell really does perform as well as NVidia projected....which would be simply amazing...

    Would not be anything surprising by looking at gtx285 vs gtx460 and gtx580 vs gtx660ti

    While this card is cool, it's kind of sad at the same time. For several months (prior to the 290x) you could buy two 7950's for about $450 bucks, on sale even closer to $400 here in the US. Just an example, just as others are saying two 670's could be had for a similar price. There is no reason to purchase this card, crossfire 7950's in my example provide almost 4,000 stream processors, very solid drivers, and frankly would smoke anything and be almost at a 7990 level. Unless this card goes for like $450, which it won't, it just remains a curiosity. It's still a very powerful and interesting card, but maybe like 2 years ago it would have ruled supreme. In some cases the r9 290 beats it, and that's not impressive.

    This card for $400 would be supreme but ASUS is going to charge $550-600 on name alone. Anyone get a little worried with the VRM's hitting 90C+ on the back side of the card?

    Looks like a beefy card. Wonder what the weight is like, unless I'm blind and missed it in the review.

    It's quite high. I wonder what will happen inside case that has sound card on top of the card.

    I wow I did not expect this out of a 760. Usually it is the higher end cards that get the X2 factor rather a mid-ranged card. Depending on the price I might be interested in this card when I upgrade my computer hopefully this summer.

    2gb cards at this stage in the game is a desert trip without a spare camel.
    and yes I know it's always that next-gen hardware that's gonna save all mankind, just like haswell cleared the room on it's arrival eh?
    don't get me wrong I'd really enjoy a card like this and after giving the review a bit of time it's really grown on me but still 2gb makes it a dud.

    Hilbert, theres an error/typo on p18 of the review, where in the smaller chart @2560x1440, the 290x is = 57fps but the larger chart same res its 67fps.

    I'm soooo getting one if it's < $500. Maybe two.

    So its really only 2gb??? If so why even consider this card....at 1440p 96hz on BF4 im hitting 2500mb of Vram usage and that's not even maxed out lol

    I just don't see why they would release this with 2gb...what a waste....

    Besides IMO anyone speding over 500$ on a GPU shouldn't even be on 1080p anymore...unless they just havto have their 144hz washed out panel...compared to a 1440p Korean panel at 96-120hz just doesn't compare anymore....:3eyes:
