Reviews for the GTX 1070 are now being published, looks like at that price point it will be the go card.

Not heard from you for a while!! Did you perform the upgrade? How is performance now? An update would be appreciated.

At the moment, I can only find one site that has side by side comparisons of the 1070, showing Hitman bench as this can be found on other site's testing. Having looked at other sites and comparing cards up to about $160, (prices are beginning to fall) there appears to be a 1 to 4 FPS difference, dependent on game.
Please read the whole article.> http://www.hardwarel...t.html?start=23
I don't think it is going to make a huge difference which card you choose for gaming performance, more important is heat and noise, even here, not much difference in numbers,
as the article shows, but consider where the heat is dispelled.
If a case with mediocre airflow, choose a GPU with a backplate and blower type fans, as in the founder editions. If airflow is good, open type cooling will be OK.
I would not count LED lighting as a factor in choosing as it makes no difference to the cards performance.
I know you will be very keen to get your new card, but hold off for a month, see if a card pulls ahead of the pack, read user reviews on Newegg, or becomes an absolute bargain.

From this page you can find out what the basic difference is between the card, they have, the founder PCB or a custom one, All have varying Base and Boost clocks, lower models have 1 BIOS, 1X 8 pin connector, 4+1 power phase, original size heatsink, lower power draw.. Higher models have, Custom PCB, Duel BIOS, 2x8 pin connectors, 10+2 Power Phase, ?? some say larger heatsink, can't confirm)
Newegg 08G-P4-6173-KR $429 lower model, basic + white LEDS,
Newegg 08G-P4-6276-KR $459 Higher model, RGB LED, Note, 2x8 pin connectors, check your PSU.
Any of the cards can be overclocked and just left there, EVGA Precision XOC > http://au.evga.com/precisionxoc/
I would choose the FTW, will run cooler and the safety of the Duel BIOS.
Thanks for the update.
Check your temps with Speedfan.
Is your performance good? no stuttering, lags, freezing?
I remember you found installing the cooler to be a hassle so leave as is if not having issues. otherwise might be an idea to orientate the CPU fan to blow front to back.
You could use this software to monitor performance, see if you have any choke points, > https://camwebapp.com/
If everything is still OK, would you like to choose a best answer and we can mark the topic as solved.
