This is only with the gtx 6xx series, the gtx770 doesnt throttle at 70c, I personally know this because I have hit up to 79c without throttling back the speed. It WILL throttle to whatever you set it to in the oc tools, default is 79c but it waits till 80c to throttle it seems.

I know this isn't a HOLY CRAP temp area, but I keep reading people getting 30 or even lower on average.
So is something wrong with my card, or does anyone here have this card with the Prodigy case? Could it be the case? It has good flow, and fans and stuff...but I dunno
Your probably using the web browser im guessing and the newer IE and i think chrome use gpu acceleration so Im thinking thats why my temps while browsing are in the 40-50's as well. Your true idle temp is most likely in the 30's.....Open precision or the tool of your choice, close everything, and let it sit. Thats your real idle temps which will probably like I said be in the 30's. Your ambient room temp is also a factor.

MSI GTX 770 TwinFrozr Gaming or Gigabyte GTX 770 Windforce?
Both costs the same for me.
I know the msi gamer has a "heatsink" plate that covers the memory and vrms, etc but the windforce actually has it as part of the cooler, so I think the gigabyte wins here. Both are good though.

what about the 770 gaming edition?
can sm1please post install guide for a gtx770?
1)how to setup the drivers for best stability
2) how to setup afterburner :so the gpu doesnt start throttling at 70°c
3)can a 770 be installed:then left @default in afterburner?
i normaly just fine tune the auto fan profile/max temp monitoring/max core clock
does the same way im describing apply to a 770 or does gpu boost realy play a big part in these bad boys?
1: Install drivers like normal and leave them alone. Nvidia does a good job of out of the box setup, Sure they can be tweaked for performance a bit, but leave them alone.
2: it does not throttle at 70, it throttles above 79c, but if you want that higher you just click the unlink button and move the slider to the desired temp and click accept.
3: the 770 doesnt need anything more than the drivers to be touched, you dont need afterburner or other tools like that unless you want to change fan speeds or overclock, I do recommend changing fan speeds since stock settings lean on the silent side which makes these cards easier to enter the 70c range

I am also noticing some light flickering on screen, like vary faint lines scrolling through the screen... sometimes it's there and other times its not. Anyone else experienced it?

If your room temp is anywhere near 80F that would be normal im sure with the stock fan speed settings, I have my asus set to go 100% fan speed at 65c, and honestly with my case fans I cant hear it. If you have low speed case fans you might hear it but its not loud.

I wouldnt install older drivers but like someone mentioned you need to mod them, left alone they will not work with the 770 if they are already on the computer. You will boot and get a message saying no compatible gpu on system and be required to install the new drivers or the ones that came on the cd which are probably 320.08.
The hx650 will be more than enough for a single gtx 770, your ok.
