I know very little difference in the quality of each card but Iwas looking at this one.

But some are almost $30 cheaper, but they also have lower clock speeds or only one fan.

I would get the EVGA brand. You only should need a card with 2 GB memory.

ACX coolers generally keep the card cooler, but all that heat goes into your case so make you have good cooling to get it out.

The standard cooler blows a lot of the hot air right out the back of the card like where you plug the monitor into. But the card will run hotter at load. But it still runs pretty nice. I have the standard cooler, evga superclocked gtx 760 it usually gets no higher then 71c at load. Often times itll run in the mid to high 60's if Im using vertical sync which is a must for some games.

the main thing youll see in the price differences is:

2GB memory vs 4GB
Standard Cooler VS ACX
factory Superclocked or overvclocked card as opposed to standard settings out of the box.

The clocks don't really matter since you can easily OC basically every card to any of the factory OCs you'll find. From there it basically comes down to the cooler and brand (customer service, warranty and such).

MSI. You won't be disappointed.

The Twin Forzr cooler is one of the coolest and quietest coolers around.

Forget all those cards. Buy this one. The Asus Mars 760. 2 760's in one. Stronger than a Titan and a 780 ti. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121839

You guys took a while to respond but I ended up getting a MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 OC for only $219 + Free (fairly fast) shipping with some really serious deal hunting.

Thanks for the responses though, finally gonna do away with my stupid cards and get more into PC gaming.
