I usually tend to go with Asus or MSI cards personally. never had to rma a card yet. But I usually go with Asus for being Asus, fanboyism I guess, and MSI because they've never let me down and I often find them cheaper. Mind you, the last MSI card I had was a GTX460 Cyclone edition or whatever, but the custom cooler on them was better than most, and the card was the cheapest available for me so it was a no brainer

Since I don't care about looks (silent case no window) I think I'm going to just go with Asus and try to crank up the clock speed.

if you're willing to look at it, I'm going to add another note towards the MSI board. it's the same form factor as the gigabyte, runs cooler than the standard form factor, and is more power efficient. as well as it has a pretty nice cooler, which is a little shorter than the gigabyte, the gigabyte is almost 300mm long. so you're going to run into fitting issues on some cases.

I know this is a very old thread. But I did want to update.

I purchased the Asus GTX 760. I have been very happy, its reasonably quiet and much smaller in size than I anticipated. I have not pushed it overclocking, I just run it as is, and everything I use it for it performs well. Mainly gaming 1620x1200 because I'm a 16:10 guy!

Yes, I prefer 16:10 for gaming as well. I curse the day 1080p became the standard.
