Yeah the 212+ will easily take your 965 to the point of diminishing returns which is all a cooler should have to do. Glad you decided AWAY from buying an EVGA with the only reason being lifetime warranty (since we see you don't keep your graphics cards for a lifetime )
Ok guys thanks for the input it's been helpfull yeah i'll go with the x4 965 BE I have a Hyper 212+ cooler so I should be able to oc pretty well. More than likely i'll get the 570 i'm leaning towards EVGA cause of their lifetime warranty. So I really don't need to get 4 more gb of ram. I have 64 bit Windows 7 and it recognizes 8 gb im pretty sure but will it make a difference in games?
I echo what everyone else has been saying.
It's hard to say which is better between the 570 and the 7850: http://www.anandtech...duct/549?vs=518 , the 7850 seems to be a far greater value and is more efficient while the 570 wins in a few select games, most they are indistinguishably close
