I'm trying to see which of the following 3070 models would be the best to get. When I look up lists, it all features the super priced 3070's and not really the following models. Which one is best?
- Palit Gaming pro OC
- Gigabyte Geforce Eagle OC
- MSI Ventus 3x
Each one for R12,999. So price is the same.

I'm looking to game, with little to no overclocking, I know OC is in the name, but they're basically the best priced I could find. I have a 1080p 144hz monitor and 3600 AMD, but will upgrade next year to a 1440p 144hz and 5600x

I can't comment on the cards performance wise, but i do know gigabyte and palit is pretty effortless RMA process, compared to MSI. That was my experience. With MSI i was without a card for 6 weeks when i RMA'd it, whilst palit was 4 days with wootware (2way shipping included) and gigabyte was 10min process at rectron.

Given this account, I’d get the Gigabyte but the 6 weeks may just have been the lead time to get new stock in.

I’m an MSI fanboi so that would be my first pick.

Second the gigabyte, rectron replaces quite quickly if the card is found to be faulty and you can walk in and start the rma process yourself. No emails back and forth
