Which GTX 760 Should I Buy?

MSI Gaming:

EVGA:

...Or a different one?

I have read that the EVGA line here are kinda loud and that might be bothersome to me, but also that the EVGA runs pretty cool. What do you guys think?

I'm looking to spend $250, if you have any other recommendations let me hear it.

Thanks.

MSI is a little quieter and cooler, EVGA is a little faster out of the box. Thats really all it comes down to, otherwise they essentially share the top spot for the 700 series.

Sweet.
edit* You say the EVGA is faster? Looking at the specs., the MSI has 1085/1150, EVGA at 1072/1137.



One last question. I'm currently using a Rosewill Stallion 500w PSU, it has 31amps on 12v, IIRC, so it should be fine temporarily, yeah?
This one, I believe:

I don't have the money this week for a new PSU, but I will get one next week or so.

Any last opinions before I order this morning?

Also, an answer to this question...

500w is plenty for a Titan and i7. I'm not sure what the rest of your build looks like but a 760 will barely make it sweat. As for Rosewill, they have some good and some bad. See what your exact model is and look up some professional reviews on it. If the pros don't complain then there's no reason to replace it unless you think there's something wrong with it or you're running a dozen mechanical drives or something silly like that.

I've got an EVGA 2GB 760 and it runs quiet in everything I've played so far or made so little noise that the background noise from games and other things completely drowns it out. I would recommend it wholeheartedly. I play BF4 on it if thats anything to go by.

I have the 4gb MSI 760, after all the reviews of crap fans on the ACX fans for eVGA, I wouldn't want to take the gamble.
