It's this card. It has a tri fan set up and it's overclocked by 150MHz on the core

I'm not familiar with Nvidia cards so I just want to check before I buy it. I've given up on trying to get an r9 290.

EDIT: It's $450 after mail in rebate. And $420 if you use a Discover card

Also, are PNY dependable when it comes to warranties and does this card use Hynix or Elpida RAM?

I had a PNY GTX 460, the first one crapped out after about 3 months, got it replaced, and the second one has lasted until this day in various different machines.

Not sure how their warranty is, I got it replaced at Best Buy.

PNY is typically a budget brand, but they aren't terrible.

PNY are actually quite decent when it comes to warranty, I purchased a 770 whilst I was staying in the States brought it home (UK) and it wouldn't work so I contacted PNY, they arranged for a replacement to be sent out and I received it within the week. This was when the 770 was released (last June) and I've been running the replacement since with no issues.
Mine uses Samsung ram, I don't know if that practice runs through the whole range or just the 770.

480 isn't that great, I bought the asus 780 for 470 awhile ago.

Very dependable. They're one of the oldest GPU manufacturers around. And since they offer a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong.
