Terry gave this link on another topic, have a look and see what you think. > https://camwebapp.com/

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

I think I'm late, but I personally would've suggested the R9-390 8GB edition a lot cheaper and yes the 1070 is better, but unless you plan to do 4K gaming in my opinion is useles even 144hz gaming with the r9-390 you would achieve low 100s on fallout 4 on ultra, so the 1070 unless you do 4K or 144hz gaming on ultra while recording is very Unnecessary and in terms of recording you are correct in saying it is all CPU, unless you you NVSync which is supported by most Nvidia cards, I use it with my 960 in OBS and can record 1080p at any frame rate with no lag, I would also recommend for recording and live streaming if you don't already have one then an SSD is absolutely essential, one of the best upgrades by far, hope I helped if I'm not too late on the advice, if you need any more feel free to ask, just a gamer helping a gamer lol

Yes, I did, sorry. It is better performance for sure.
 
But now, I need to know which of these 4 to get?

They all look good but not sure which is better.

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.

Thank you. Waiting a month, will, unfortunately, not be an option. The money I get paid this coming Thursday will be the only money I will have open to me for the rest of the year. As long as there is no difference in the cards I will most likely buy the super clocked card.

Side note. I wonder why the FTW card is $30 more than the Super Clocked card?

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) 

http://au.evga.com/P...=08G-P4-5173-KR

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 thereEVGA Precision XOC http://au.evga.com/precisionxoc/

 

I would choose the FTW, will run cooler and the safety of the Duel BIOS.

I got the gtx 1070 FTW edition. Installing it, I realized my CPU fan is blowing at the back of the card as seen in the picture. Is this OK? Angle is bad. There is a good 3 - 4 inches between.

Edit: added picture.

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/

None what so ever, yet. I haven't really thrown heavy hours of play at it yet. That will change Tuesday

Gday.

If everything is still OK, would you like to choose a best answer and we can mark the topic as solved.
