This is the only card that both your block and the xspc block says it is compadable with....idk what it is about the card other then maybe the card was special made to be water cooled since it comes with a hybrid cooling system on it...email EK again and run it by them and see if this card has been visually tested for fitment with your block i guess

wait...i am being retarded i have done this research before when i was gonna get a 770 4gb lol

they dont make water blocks for the 770 4g directly but they have them...you have to get a 680 water block....just about any 680 water block is compatibly with a 770 4gb...thats why they never made a specific water block for those card lol...

http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/waterblock_genpdf?wb_id=586

just about any brand has em...Ek, XSPC, you name it...just get a 680 block and your good to go

choose this video card Zotac GeForce GTX 770 4GB GDDR5 (ZT-70304-10P)

that one works with Ek's EK-FC680 GTX water block

Deepsouth1987: Better buy a R9 290(x) or a GTX 780 (ti) if you really want to upgrade

EDIT: A realistic prediction on the 8xx series will be the end of the year, like August or September, not a few months.

I have a 5760x 1080 surround system what are you basing your opinions on?

The question for me is: Is it worth the money to upgrade a 2 GB to a 4 GB version, if you allready have a 2 GB version?

this is a abstract from the above link
Quote:
There isn’t a lot of difference between the cards at 1920×1080 or at 2560×1600. We only start to see minimal differences at 5760×1080, and even so, there is rarely a frame or two difference. If we start to add even more AA, in most cases, the frame rates will drop to unplayable on both cards.
Benchmarks based on single GTX 770


My findings are the same even with a 2 way SLI system simply even if you use 3.5Gb of Vram most likely you will be in the 5-10FPS if you like to play with a constant 60+ FPS you will end up with "High settings" which will normally equate to 1.8-1.9Gb of Vram.
I can say this as I own and game on a 5760x1080 surround system with 770 SLI and I monitor while I game and never have any micro stutter caused by running out of Vram.


LOL my keyboard looked clean until I took a photo


I would say 4GB CARDS ARE WORTH IT IF YOU DON'T MIND GAMING @ 25-35FPS

I have seriously missed the comment about the 3gb of vram not enough but my 7560x1440 is fine on 3gb unless your wanting to play skyrim with lots of mods given at my resolution aa is not really needed but you also need gpu power to keep your fps high and trust me it startd costing a lot of money to achieve that. Like feznz said if your only running 2 cards youmay not have enough juice and may need a 3rd. Either way surround is fun but no matter what it does cost money and can cost a lot depending on what your wanting. Also if your wanting a higher end card make sure you have a good cpu and your not bottlenecking. My 3 780Ti have hit a bottleneck on my 4.6 4930K my gpus are oc but now I am going to have to sell my 4930k and start a hunt for one capable of 5ghz and for anyone wondering yes I have plenty of cooling for it. If you decide to spend the money then a 780 would be a good choice as far as prrformance goes with skyn3t vbios and voltage unlock you can oc them pretty well the 780ti he hasn't bern able to unlock and doesn't look like he will be able too. A 780 classy is good for oc if you go that route but 2 770s do perform better then a 780 but a 780 allows you to add 2 more later for 3 way sli and the Ti allow for 4 way I will let you know how 4 way is when I get my cpu issues resolved.

The VRAM thing between a 2gb-4gb GTX 770 will make a HUGE ******* DIFFERENCE in this mans application....you see, BF4 on a SINGLE 1920x1080p monitor uses roughly 1.7-1.9gb of VRAM alone with everything set to its highest. This gentleman does not use a single monitor he uses three in nvidia surround, which raises the resolution and thus raises the needed VRAM to play on ultra to around 2.8ish gb... His GPU power alone is more than enough for BF4, hell my two 460's runs BF4 on ULTRA settings i just have to turn off all AA,Post AA and HBAO crap off cause that uses alot of VRAM and I use only one monitor but am limited by my 1gb VRAM...he uses three monitors but is limited by his 2gb VRAM. If he only used one monitor he would have more than enough now, But since he uses three then he needs more VRAM not more GPU power which is why he should sell his 2gb 770 for like 200-225 on ebay and take that and an extra 200 and get a 4gb 770 and save the big upgrade for the 8xx series...

and that leads me to my second rant!!!!...clearly you did not listen to what I said about the 8xx cards!!!! there is already road maps for the gtx 800 mobile gpus out and word is late feb early march when they hit, and it is never far behind that the desktop GPU's come out after the mobile ones...the one question is will the desktop ones be just a 10-15% improvement of our current 7xx cards with the same 28nm die, or will they be the 50%+ improvement NVIDIA claims is possable with the new 20nm dies that the 800 cards are suppose to have...there is no question that we will see 8xx cards of some sort before may-june...only thing is what will they be, a huge improvement with 20nm die chips or just a slight one with old 28nm chips to keep up with AMD and then the 20nm GPUs late this year...

as for the original guy who asked the first question...if you need something to run your triple monitors RIGHT NOW, then get a 770 4gb and save your big upgrade for when ever the 20nm 8xx cards come out, whether its soon or later this year

Here we go again with the misinformation tongue.gif, and it's always people that have not used anything higher than a single 1080p or 1440p monitor lol. 4gb 770's are waste. point blank waste for gaming. Get the 2gb or upgrade to something higher (290x, 780ti. e.t.c)

I was trying to trigger your reaction since this has been discussed many many times..... You must be tired of it.
