I'm in a market for a new GPU and I'm kinda on a budget here. I've decided on GTX 760, despite R9270(X) being near performance wise, while being cheaper.
My question is about non-reference designs.
Where I come from I can get :
PALIT GTX 760 Jetstream 2GB for about 280€
ASUS GTX 760 (DirectCUII) for roughly 305€
Palit one is clocked slightly higher out of the box, but uses reference PCB and has slightly more audible, but (at least to me) better looking cooler.
Now..Is 25€ premium worth giving for a non reference PCB and better known brand (since ASUS is well accepted in tech community)?
Has anyone had any problems with PALIT or PNY-Gainward? (They are the same company)
If brand is not an issue I'd really like to save those 25€.
Also there's a 4GB version of before mentioned PALIT card for about the same price as ASUS's offering, should I go with it instead?
