Asus DCII is about the best I've seen from the more popular brands.. though see some decent looking things from zoatec etc..
Would love to see a round-up including palit zoatec galaxy etc etc.


Asus>Gigabyte IMO... the plastic shroud is horrible on the gigabyte.

+1 and Asus's excellent support is way superior and better in every way then Gigabyte...
You may also consider Evga.. pretty good card too, and even though it's the reference card, they beefed up the stock heatsink, so the cooling is better

I'm running the same card. No complaints at all. Runs super quite while playing BF3. It also looks cool too. :D
