After my Sapphire 7850 gave me masses of problems with my first ever gaming PC build, I returned it and Amazon kindly gave me a full refund.
I was planning on getting the Nvidia counterpart, the 660 or maybe 660 Ti. But recently, the 760 was released.
I would like to get an EVGA 760 as I know their customer service is excellent, and I think they are doing a registration offer with 760's with 3DMark11 and Primal Carnage.
I have been waiting a few weeks for the 760 to be in stock for UK retailers (it took a while longer than the US), and now it is mostly in stock. But I don't know whether to get an EVGA one with ACX cooling or not.
I would definitely get the ACX, but the thing is, that is still not stocked anywhere yet. On top of that, from Ebuyer, for around £16 less than the ACX, I can get a Superclocked blower cooled one.
Scan.co.uk and Amazon.co.uk have the ACX versions listed, but with no sign of stock coming soon.
Their ordinarily cooled 760's are much more expensive than Ebuyer.
I would rather get my 760 from Ebuyer or Amazon, as I trust these the most.
So I need to know if it is worth waiting for the ACX to be stocked (I really am tired of waiting for a GPU now), and also paying around £16 more for it, and that's without the Superclock.
A few more important things - I will NOT be doing any SLI, as my motherboard only supports Crossfire. I am almost certain my case has enough air flow for an ACX fan which blows hot air into the case. I know ACX would seem like a good option here - but would I be fine being inpatient and getting a stock cooled one?
Any help / suggestions are greatly appreciated!
