    I have the option to get an Evga 670 for £294, an Evga Cheesecake for £308 or an MSI for £304.
    Would the Evga Cheesecake be the best choice?

    I picked the cheesecake. Waiting for it to arrive Monday. That's a good price for it :)

    I went for the Gigabyte and got a new PSU at the same time so got to use the £25 off voucher on Dabs.

    I'm sure I won't!!

    DPD said they would deliver between 09:16 and 10:16 and it was onsite by the time I got into work at 09:30 this morning... already prepared my case and pre-routed cables etc ready to build the new rig tonight. Now all I need is my vehicle back from BT Fleet, hope the service / MOT / re-call doesn't take too long today! :D

    Just thought I'd add my 2c worth to this thread.

    I got my 4GB EVGA 670s 5 days ago now, and I've had plenty of time to play and test.

    They do +100MHz clock, and +700MHz Mem with only 110% TDP and NO volts increase.

    Clocks boost to 1250 with those settings.

    Awesome cards.

    I'm surprised it's as quiet as it is. With a £100 premium for 8% performance increase, no one in their right mind will be buying a 680.

    Or the £200 premium I paid for the GTX 680 4GB cards...:/

    It changed from what would you get to what did you get. There's not a lot to add after that.

    Had the Zotac 680 4GBs been in stock at time of my purchase, I probably would've bought them but in hindsight the SCs are the best bang for buck if you want more ram.

    I'm about to pull the trigger on a 3011 so it will help, though ram vs bandwidth is still unresolved

    I'm going to bump/necro this thread to say I've just picked up a MSI GTX 670 OC for £280 off of Scan's Today Only.

    Specs seemed pretty good for the price and reviews seemed positive, so bit the bullet. I decided that the EVGA card wasn't worth £20 more, and the MSI comes with a higher clock speed anyway.

    Did you get a U3011? Are you running it with 1 GTX 670? What's performance like?

    Does that max out all games?

    Sadly no, we are now moving and I've had to massively curb the size of my rig.

    TJ11 is to be sold as is a lot of WCing bits, 1 670 already gone and U3011 went back to the shop.

    To summarize: :wallbash: :waah:

    My 2 670 4GBs maxxed all games I played @ 60fps apart from metro 2033, Max Payne and Crysis!

    No idea. I got it to get better fps in BF3. I'm pretty sure it will be fine for the most part. I've ordered my second one a few days ago, I expect it to arrive by next wednesday or so.

    Just hit the buy button on a EVGA 670. Just for the peace of mind afforded by them not wiping out the warranty when you fit a waterblock.

    That's awful. If it makes you feel any better I just ordered a U3011 and a couple of Asus GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP cards:D
    The cards are on pre-order, have to wait 1-2 weeks so let me know if I've made a mistake there.

    my Cheesecake seems stable at 1305, boosts fairly regularly. Took me a while to get used to the new OCing method but the benefits are great, especially being able to run 2 monitors without idling on full clocks
