Good build. Should have gone with EVGA 760, but its not a big deal.


Difference between the two? I can still switch.


When it comes to video cards, EVGA is better quality than Asus. Asus is very good with motherboards however. Also I don't know if you get Splinter Cell Blacklist with Asus. You get it with EVGA.


wait, whattt? What about SCBL? Because I was planning on getting it for 360.. but you're saying I get it free with an EVGA? Can you link me to it.

Ha, not really, no.

All the big video card manufacturers' (EVGA, MSI, Gigabyte etc.) products are of similar quality, unless something in particular is wrong, which is not the case here. The ASUS 760 might even be a little better than EVGA's ACX because the DCUII cooler is better.

So do I have to buy it from them? Or can I get it off like amazon or something. Also, is the 760 around the same price?

You can get it from Amazon. I did. The second I bought it, Amazon sent me an email with the code to get it. And yeah, its the same price.

5/10.
Bland, generic middle of the road build is boring.

EVGA is better than Asus, but only by a little.

That's why I rated it 5 and not below. It's not bad, just boring.

Does it have to have a custom loop to be above a 6/10?

Saying one card is "better" because of benchmarks at stock is quite silly. Different chips will boost to different speeds, and thinking that such a small difference is significant in any way is laughable. If you scroll down to the noise level graph, that pretty much tells the whole story.
