Which one should I get ? The Gaming Z 8G or Armor 8G OC ?

The Gaming Z 8G costs about $821 and Armor 8G OC costs about $785.

The prices seems to be high but I checked most of retail stores and they have similar prices.

I have the Armor card and I'm very satisfied, but I wonder why is it so expensive at your place? Where are you from?


Have you tried dark mode yet? click on your "username" > "Theme" > "nighttheme"

Bangladesh...

Here are two stores that sell the Armor I know of  UCC  & Ryans .

I am not still decided in which 2070 I will get because I saw reviews of other 2070s having problems and such. So I hope you can correct me if I am wrong.

1 USD = 84 BDT

Gaming Z is around 7% more powerful as far as I know. So if the price difference is that small get this.

MSI did a bloody good job with the 2070! Runs smooth and definitely NO heating issues.
