^ to the guy you quoted do you really think the 670 is going to drop under $300 when people are still trying to get $350+, You are better off buying a 760ti next week which is the exact same thing, but better.

The results in HotHardware's review are atypical (most other reviews show a much smaller gap in 770 and 7970GE Crysis 3 performance), and even if they weren't Crysis 3 tends to favor NVIDIA hardware.
Often times it does translate into better performance.

It's easy to find a few examples that can show whatever we want them to.
The overwhelming majority of people will.
As you can tell, I tend to buy cards and hold them for a really, really long time smile.gif Actually now that I have a decent paying job I should be able to swap them out every year and sell the other one used. My GTS 250 should get me about what, $40? LOL

2gb Vram will be enough, even in the foreseeable future, for those with single GPU setups.

Those with sli/tri-sli and 1440P and beyond, who actually have enough GPU power to run AA at higher then 1080p resolution - the memory will come in handy and you should look at a card with 3gb+ (7970, 4gb 770, 780, titan etc)

And I guess for those who mod games like Skyrim, Fallout etc the vram may be a issue (I hit 2.6-2.8g in Skyrim @ 1440P) - but these people would fall into a small percentile

For the vasty majority, this card is excellent and priced perfectly

PS all the 7970ghz overclock comments - the majority of 7970ghz on the markets are actually voltage locked these days. Not a problem for older cards but for those trying to make a informed decision before buying something new, I suggest you search '7970ghz voltage locked' on google. There's only a few models that are not locked at the moment.

Now I can go ahead & sell my ASUS 660 to buy a 770 wheee.gif ...It's so nice to see 2Gb is just fine for 1200p thumb.gif

Have there been any rumors on a release date for the 760ti?  Last thing I heard was speculation it would be weeks or months away.

What I remember reading about the 760 Ti is that it's coming out either on June 6th (following the once-a-week pattern) or sometime later in June. Beyond that, I haven't read anything about the 760 (non-Ti) or below.

The thing is that the $299+ price points needed some help against AMD's offerings, but their recent $30 price drop for the 660 seems to have helped at the $199 price point. That, and the $169 GTX 650 Ti BOOST which totally nullified the 7790's launch.

You mean like how the AMD 7990 was a year late and the same price as the GTX 690?

You might want to save your "rolleyes" emoticon.

You are correct 7990 was a year late as well. But that doesn't mean 770 should be impressive.

So here's my rolleyes.gif again. biggrin.gif

you should try one and see if you like it, then you might get a SSD and be up to date, kinda...

If I am going to buy a 770 right now, I would rather choose a 780. 780 is more worth it than the 770. smile.gif And yes I would buy a SSD. smile.gif

Serious question, I see the test cards have the Titan like cooler, but cards on New egg do not. Can one get a GTX770 with a Titan reference like cooler for $400?

Thank you
