I recently had to return my ASUS GTX 760 due to incompatability issues. however, i have confirmed that the PNY, MSI, and EVGA cards work. Not really sure why the ASUS one wasn't, but i'm not concerned about it. I'm leaning towards the PNY due to the lifetime warranty, but is there anything that really hinders that card compared to the rest?

Oh, and before i forget, my specs are in my sig.

May i ask what exactly was incompatible? Size?

The cooler seems mediocre to me. Why not go for MSI or EVGA?

The differences between GPUs are the coolers and the after sale support (warranty etc).

Tbh idk how good PNY's warranty is, i haven't heard bad things about them though.

not sure to be honest. i took it to fry's, as i'm not a "computer expert" and i thought they could help me with it. It pretty much wouldn't boot up at all with that specific card in it. it worked with my old GT 640 somehow still.

The reviews all seem positive so i'd go for it.

Very possible, but either way fry's barely ever honors their warranty, which is why i'm still thinking the PNY.

Just go with the lifetime warranty. Unless a card comes DOA you'll probably never need the warranty as you'll upgrade long before it would come into play.
