Default Which GTX1070?

MSI ARMOR GTX 1070 ARMOR 8G OC
1.56 GHz Core
1.75 GHz Boost Clock $530 + tax.

or

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC Gaming ACX 3.0 Black Edition 1594/1784 8GB $545 + tax.

Potentially best cooler, vram and warranty dealing in Canada?

Can't do the 1070ti it's way overpriced for me.

I've had really positive RMA experiences with MSI, but that's a while ago (560ti cards).

It seems gpus took another price hike along with ram this past week, I'm trying to keep it closer to $500 before tax but there's always Black Friday too so maybe waiting might be better.

If you want cheap I would consider used. The MSI card I suggested has the best cooler of the bunch IMO. very quiet and cool. IMO buy the card you want and then install NiceHash and have the 1070 pay for it self.

I bit the bullet and went with the MSI GTX1070 Armor at Mikescomputers, I'm happy with the Rx 580 armor so I'll see how the 1070 armor cools.
