I am getting two GTX 970's and putting them in SLI, but which brand should I get?

I was looking at the EVGA superclocked edition, is EVGA a trusted and reputable brand?

What would you recommend?
 


Roast :



and its most quiet, not quitest. :)

Sorry, do not normally correct people on here but that was a bit much with the roast. :D

OP : At the moment the EVGA should be avoided till they fix the issues they are having with their cooler.

These 2 are great alternatives :

MSI Gaming.
Asus STRIX.

EDIT : Zotac makes some great graphics cards too, but they tend to be a teensy bit louder.
 


No worries, nor is mine, and I have my fair share of brainfarts. :)

evga is great company and buying via them you have 90 days to upgrade upon registering your evga product. that way if what u got isn't enough you just "step up" that's name of program pay difference and get new product.

I originally bought 770 w/ 4vram and stepped up to 780 w/6vram and for 126.00 it was so well worth it. i'll never buy a graphic card that is not made by EVGA
:bounce:
step up program rocks

The ACX coolers heat pipes are misaligned with the GPU on the card. The cooler has 3 heat pipes but only 2 are actually in contact. EVGA hasn't been overly helpful to those who were caught out either.
