I can sell my 660 ti for 210 and get lightning 770 for 440 so it is not the 230 worth to upgrade?

That's not bad at all, it's entirely up to you though. If I felt the need to scratch the upgrade itch yeah 230$ for a 770 is a good deal. Go for it if you want it thumb.gif

No reference cards with the Titan cooler are being sold in North America.

For about the same price you can get any of several very good 7970s, and with the 9000 series launching later in the year, the 7970 prices will drop even farther. So at this point, it's 6 to 1, and a half dozen the other. The 770 and the 7970 are very good, and since you're coming from the 580 you'll notice an enormous difference either way. However, seeing that the 770 just launched there will probably be several rounds of patches necessary to polish the drivers before they're really smooth and stable. The 7970s have one last remaining kink to work out, but the xfire frametime/stutter patch comes out in the next 3-6 weeks, I'm leaning away from the 770 since I found that out a couple days ago. For $20 less there's good 7970s, for $20-30 more there's the 7970 GHz Editions... You're going to get pretty comparable performance (sans folding & boincing... the 7970 will own the 680 and 770 there) for around the same price so at this point it's really a matter of personal preference.

770 is a decent refresh for gk104 line-up,but wait what red team brings..that's my humble advice smile.gif

I might switch to 1440p 1 screen in a while, i don't know.

That's highly likely. Although, I did read that AMD was thinking Q3 release?

To be honest, I'd get much more use out of the GPU if I bought it now. Not have classes after work would be fun. Anyways, I'll think about it.

Could always switch to 1440 and grab a 780 if I'm feeling fun.

Edit. Friend did just pick up the 7950 by my suggestion, and I'm kinda thinking if I upgrade that would be the way to go.

That is dumb. Oh well. If I really want one that bad maybe I will pay for the shipping. Thanks for the info!

Overclockers UK charges GBP 29.04 for international shipping to the USA for the Inno3D model with the Titan-style cooler (which costs GBP 299.99 before VAT).

At current exchange rates, the total cost would be USD $506 (assuming that they don't levy VAT on overseas orders).

Does anyone know of a review (forum or website) which specifically reviews a 4gb 770 and its overclocking ability?

Generally the 4gb 680 overclocked a bit worse then the 2gb especially on memory, I wonder if this is still true?

I couldn't find any 4GB reviews in TPU's database.

Yeah I have had a bit of a search and can't find anything either

All of the 4gb 770's I can buy in OZ (Gigabyte, Gainward) are all non OC editions. Wonder if there is anything to this

Very interested in seeing what the 770 Classified can do

I doubt there will be driver issues (which won't affect all of Kepler lineup) because the GTX 770 is basically an overclocked GTX 680 with higher clocking memory chips. That also suggests that there will very likely be minimal (if any) driver improvements before Maxwell. Since the previous gen Keplers have already squeezed out a lot of the potential improvements.

After considering leaving my (downclocked) 6970 Lightning + overclocked 6950 for a single card solution, I was torn for a while. I looked at the 7970Ghz,GTX770 and 7950 and almost pulled the trigger on the GTX 770. However, given the raw price/performance, I decided to go with the 7950 (Winforce 3 so let's hope I don't get a crappy card. Arriving tomorrow) over the other options and wait for Maxwell/8000 series. Besides, I only play at 1080p 60Hz anyway. If next gen is a good bang for my buck, I may upgrade to 120Hz.

Coming from a 580, you'll definitely notice the improvement no matter the path you take. For my res and games, a 7950 would be a sufficient enough upgrade till the end of the year or even end of next year
