    Man, my 560ti pair I think I had in use longer than any other cards I've ever had. Such a fantastic card.

Some of the overclocking reviews I've seen for the founders edition show that you'll likely hit max power limitations before you hit temp limitations. Though the founders edition still has some good room for overclocking, just not as much as some of the other third party cards with aftermarket coolers and additional power headers.

    Those superclocked editions with the acx3.0 coolers are probably the best cards from that list you linked, though I think availability still largely limit your selection depending on how soon you plan on getting one. If you're stuck deciding between two, I would recommend going with whichever one is clocked the fastest. Sometimes depending on sales and availability, the faster ones might even be cheaper, so take that into account too.

    Founders editions are alot easier to find and if you're not planning on going nuts with overclocking, they are really solid cards. I've got one for the time being and it's a beast. Truth be told though, one of those acx3.0 superclocked cards, the msi gaming x twin frozr cards, or the asus strix cards will outperform the founders edition noticeably.

    If you can handle waiting a month or two to check on availability for the one that you want, you might be able to snag one for a decent price. If you are wanting one asap, you kinda have to look at what's available lol. Supplies have been getting a little better lately though if you're on top of it though they do sell out quick

    Thanks Salty

    I have about 1700.00 to spend right now and am wanting to upgrade my GPU and Monitor. I am not going to upgrade my Motherboard, CPU and memory until next year (after Jan 1) I am not in a rush so I may wait as you suggested.

    I don't plan on overclocking, I use to do that but now I just go with what it can give me at factory settings.

    What I like about the EVGA cards are the 3 year warranty,
