Hey guys.

I'm mostly trying to build a computer to manage most games released this year on High (and not necessarily Ultra). I'm mostly playing Planetside 2 and Guild Wars 2 but I also play Borderlands 2/L4D2/BF3 and in the near future DmC: Devil May Cry, Bioshock: Infinite, Mass Effect 3, Mettro 2033, Farcry 3 and etc.

  • Can they be overclocked (for the FTW model, can the OC be tweaked)? Will I need an aftermarket fan if I decide to overclock them?
  • Do AMD have reliable products? I've never used them before.
  • Do you suggest factory OCed or manually OCing for someone who has never OCed before?

My resolution is 1920x1080 at the moment.

Thank you

Just a few from heaps of reviews to look at, and I have not cherry picked them.

A GTX 670 would be my choice, (going in my next build)
Yes they can be OC, best to use software, that comes with any particular card, much easer that Oclocking a stock GPU.

AMD products are just as good and reliable as Nvidia.

Discuss further.

I see your other topic Re, coolers.If you are builder your own rig, it is best to have one Thread with all the parts listed so we can see what is going to go with what, makes sure there is no compatibility issues.
