Just curious before i purchase a particular brand of this GTX 770 to avoid issues if possible since i am using an Intel Mobo.
I do know owners of the EVGA GTX SC 770 have some problems with not only the Intel Mobo`s but a few other popular brands also. I am trying to see if these motherboard issues are primarily centered around the EVGA GTX 770 card and the current BIOS they are using. EVGA did create a new Bios update for there GTX 780 and are now shipping the 780`s out with the new BIOS already installed for consumers. But i have not heard any news about the GTX 770 other then EVGA states they are working on one.
If no one is complaining are having issues with the other brands of the GTX 770 it would appear the problem IMO is solely with the Bios EVGA is presently using. Installing the latest Intel motherboard Bios has not resolved the issues that some EVGA GTX 770 owners are having.
EVGA tech claims folks should not encounter ANY issues with the new 770 they provide since it uses the same architecture design as the previous 670 & 680, but that is apparently not the case with quite a few folks running with the Intel motherboards.
I had narrowed my choices down to either the EVGA GTX 770 ACX SC or the Gigabyte Windforce & will gladly order the windforce if its BIOS is more compatible and not creating the issues.
