According to EVGA, it's still got the Titan's cooling apparatus, but obviously the outer shroud isn't as nice.

It likely wasn't offered by EVGA due to cost reasons, and the only AIB partner that I know of that's offering a Titan-style outer shroud is Inno3D (which sells to the European market, and not North America).

Yes but the reference cooler is so beautiful drool.gif

That's the card I'd pick out of the GTX 770s known to date, as the ACX cooler was very highly praised in the reviews for its GTX 780 counterpart.

Of course, this assumes that you're not going to run SLI. If so, then pick the standard blower-type cooler.

They designed it so the ACX will work great in SLI too (it is still a two-slotter and most of the air leaves from the top and bottom of the card so you will need to set your case to have exhaust on the top of your case).

EVGA 770 SC ACX it is! thumb.gif
I was planning to keep my EVGA GTX 780 that will arrive tomorrow..
But looking to the reviews and the price of the GTX 770, I can't say no to that!

and yes, i am aware that a dual GPU setup at the same price is almost always better (pure) performance wise than a similarly priced single solution.

You know the thing I dislike about AMD the most, is the constant IF & WHEN statements excuses that people have to make for them.

7970 has been on the market for 17 months now, there should be no excuses for having to wait for things to get fixed.

In theory, yes, in reality, they're the same chip as regular 7970's. 7970 GE are just overclocked 7970's for $50 more.

AMD would never Overclock a card and call it GHZ edition and charge more for it, right? rolleyes.gif

680 came out at $499, this is $399 and faster, what's the problem?

Also, AMD ALREADY did what you suggested, except for the overclocking part. tongue.gif

Say hello to the 8970 based on the 7970. lachen.gif

It doesn't need any other justifications.

It doesn't need to justify it's 53% price premium over the 780? I've already seen a few Titan owners sell their cards and get 780's.

If the 780 released at the same time as Titan, would you still buy a Titan over a 780?

I really wanted to get a 780, but this card for $250 less makes more sense for 1080p. I have no plans on going 1440p any time soon.

I'm also torn because a 580 makes as much sense for my primary needs, and I could get a Lightning for under $250, and will last me 'till Maxwell. I hardly play games anymore.

I'm really liking this 770 though, probably the best card NVIDIA has released lately for the price.

If I could use a 7970 with Premiere CS6, I'd be singing a way different tune. wink.gif

It's the metal construction, glowing logo and looks. I honestly don't know why anyone would go for the EVGA blower.

I know that you're tongue-in-cheek with that post, but sadly that sentiment is all too true these days.

Between the massive swaths of black and the stainless steel accents, does anyone else get a 80's faux-futurism vibe from EVGA's 770 blower? It looks like a video card that wouldn't have been out of place in Short Circuit or WarGames...

Sadly, I must admit that I preferred EVGA's 600-series shrouds with their almost-houndstooth pattern (especially the grey-topped ones like the 660 Ti and below)

However at least it's much better than some of their awful 500-series "honeycomb-and-swoosh" shrouds (ike the 560 Ti seen below)

I liked the 5xx series ones since they were very much quiet and provided better airflow to the heatsink, at least in my dealings with the cards.
