ASUS Radeon 7770 2GB (Worth it?)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm building a computer right now and was wondering if there's any performance increase in getting the 7770 2GB version (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121642&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=) or if I should just go with the 1GB. Also was wondering if there's a better card to get for this price. Let me know.

Thanks

No if you're 1080p or below. Even if you were, I'd wonder why you're getting a 1440p or 1660p monitor and driving games on a 7770.

I'd say try and go for a 7850 on sale, they roll around according to slickdeals every now and then. Just setup a deal alert for your account.

77070's go for around $70-80 in my book. Any more, I'm getting ripped off. Slickdealer talkin' here ^^

OP a HD 7770 is a bit too weak for 1080p performance. it will struggle to play the latest games at even medium to high settings at 50-60 fps. Get a HD 7850. here is a factory overclocked PCS+ HD 7850 (2GB) at 1 Ghz.

even at stock speeds this card matches GTX 660. a slight overclock to 1.15 Ghz will put this card on par with HD 7870. almost twice the perf of HD 7770. comes with free farcry 3 game coupon. you can sell that for 30 bucks and lower your cost.

I might just build the computer and use the onboard graphics and wait until I find a real good deal on the 7850. i don't really have much feedback on my ebay account so I dunno how I would sell that far cry 3.

You should have 0 problems selling it on ebay. You don't need to be reputable since it's a PC download card. People know that these games, probably most people specifically look for this games on ebay knowing that a large # of GPU buyers are looking to sell them.

I've read that Powercolor is sort of a low-end graphics card company. That they use recycled parts and don't have the same quality as some of the other GPU companies. Do you have a Powercolor and have you had any problems?

Personally wouldn't buy powercooler.

For $135? Again, save an additional $20 and get a 7850 using slickdeals to monitor deals around the web.

Using the cheapskates' (mine) price scale, you're in the middle of no man's land. I'd recommend bumping up to a ~$150 7850 if you can find one, surely within the next month one will go on sale.

I think that's what I'm gonna do. Although I really don't want to deal with any mail in rebates. I really don't like 4myrebate.com. I can wait a little bit and get by on the onboard graphics till I find a good deal on a nice video card

Grab a Gigabyte 7770OC they can overclock like crazy mine is 1250/1400 with 1.25v for the price you cant get better if you have a bigger budget then 7870 is the best buy
