What do you guys think of this card ??
I can get it for a good price right now.
And i am going for corsair spec 04 case with it, is it a good option for the card concerning air flow and stuff.
 
Looks okay to me. Your ATX cabinet also has support for Maximum GPU Length, 370mm, so there is room as well. Regarding the airflow, can you attach intake/exhaust FANS on that chassis ? Do you also have a compatible PSU with you as well ?

For similar price maybe 5$ more you can get the seasonic focus gold.
checkout thermaltake cases. i was looking for a lower priced case (want to sell the rig), and found one with tempered glass for less than 60$.

whats the price on the palit? not a bad card, but i would check price on a msi gaming/gaming x,
as they tend to have the best (air) cooler at the moment, which gets the highest (boost) clocks.

No not where i live (egypt) it would cost me much more
checkout thermaltake cases.
V200 is available with extra $20 but does it have better air flow ?

The palit one costs $347 while msi gaming x is $389 there is also the aorus version at $398.

unless something changed, gigabyte uses the lower "grade" type of coolers on their cards,
which usually can be had cheaper from others (pny etc) or sometimes you get the better type for similar price of the GB.
zotacs usually get nice heatsinks too.

i prefer looking for the largest fans with a beefy (aka heavy) heatsink.
comparing pics and listed weight should make it easier to compare, but from my research of the past couple gens,
msi is one of the top (if not the fasted) just because cooling is the biggest limiter (outside power) on aircooled Nvs right now.

all cards tend to get similar (max) core/boost clocks, no matter the rband, so cooling is one thing that can help getting a bit more perf.
e.g. max out sliders for temp/power, run bench with vram +500 Mhz to make sure its stable, then run oc scanner (works with all Nv cards),
and you get a nice tweak card that will perf very close to possible max of the chip in less than 1h.

in my case (msi gaming x 1080) i could get higher continuous clocks while using a bit less voltage (than my manual oc test).
now runs 1949/2065 vs 1708/1847 (msi oc mode).

msi ventus

i prefer this:
msi gaming

if for a much better price, i would look at asus strix or the zotac amp. all others will have cheaper heatsinks,
and i would then rather go with the cheapest card i could find.
