Question Asus 760 or Gigabyte 760

I'm trying to select a GTX 760 card. Big upgrade cycle for me on the entire system (current gpu is GTX460)

I've had my eye one the Gigabyte card but have no experience with Gigabyte, as I've alway's used Asus cards.

So my choices seem to be
GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5 - Graphics Cards - ASUS
OR
GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - NVIDIA - PCI Express Solution - GeForce 700 Series - GV-N760OC-2GD (rev. 2.0)

Should I just pull the trigger on the Gigabyte and be happy?

WOW! I'm suprised by the responses. From all I read it seemed the Gigabtye card is the one to get. Guess I better read a little more and see if I can get the Asus to Gigabyte clock speeds.

The only reason I would get the ASUS over Gigabyte would be RMA purposes in Canada. That windforce rev 2.0 is supa sexy. Personally I would go with the Giga.

I'm holding out hope that some site will do post some comparison reviews for the cards.

Why not look at MSI as well? or EVGA both of them make great cards and price them competitively plus MSI's RMA centre is in Canada and they are awesome there

MSI N760 GAMING GeForce GTX 760 2GB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort at Memory Express
or eVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB PCI-E w/ ACX Cooler, Dual DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort at Memory Express

I would personally get MSI. But Asus in your case.
