What GTX 770 should I take? - Page 2

post #11 of 26
All are partially unlocked cards when it comes to voltages, they all have gpu boost 2.0 which allows for a slight bump in voltages (real small). As for gaming vs lightning, they both have the same cooler, but the lightning has backplate, gpu reactor more phases...etc

As far as oc goes, i cant answer since there are only 2 reviews of the lightning and non mention oc at ALL.

3d gaming requires gpu brute force and not vram.

As far as 2g vs 4g, depends on resolution.

Now if the lightning has unlocked voltages and higher power limit, then by all means grab a lightning. (unlocked bioses will be available in a the upcoming days am sure, if you want to flash also get a lightning).

How come no one wants anything to do with the Asus CU II GTX 770 or the older GTX 680 dual slot card

I have two dual slot GTX 680 cards in SLI

And i have found no problems with them other then they run a little hotter then some of the other cards but its also more quiet

EVGA SuperClocked : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130921

or

MSI Lightning : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127742

or

should I just wait for the EVGA FTW version?

Also, is it worth to wait for the 4 Gb cards or it's not worth it?

Thanks

i would go with evga, they have really good customer service. if your patient i would wait for the 880. 770 and 680 are basically the same card. you would just be buying a card thats a year old.
but if you need a card badly now. 680 used would be even cheaper.

evga's acx cooler is the best on the market

there's not enough OC headroom for overvolting to do anything

plus they have the best support as the guy above me said

they recently RMA'd my 7 year old card that was out of warranty

A lot of people like EVGA as a company, and they already had the US market for reference-blower cards locked down. Now that their dual-fan cards have the very competitive (perhaps even superior) ACX cooler, a lot of people are moving towards that solution.

Also, ASUS' reputation for customer service Stateside has taken a severe hit over the last year or two...

As such, while ASUS' DirectCU 680/770s may not be a bad choice, they probably aren't the best choice either.

Are you sure you're in the right thread?...
