Turn your GTX 680 in to a stock GTX 770 - Page 37

post #361 of 391
Been reading several pages of this so far and was wondering can I do this with my 680 4gb edition? Could not find a 770 4 gb edition bios ..sorta noobish at this so figured I would just ask at this point

edit: i have to update my computer below thats not my pc anymore but i still have the 680 4gb

edit: this is my card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130794


EVGA 04G-P4-3687-KR GeForce GTX 680 FTW+ w/Backplate 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Mario From everything I have read .This flash was only for the 2GB 680's .You have to be very careful.Sorry you bricked your card,but you probably could have flashed back the original bios ,someone here could have helped. I still have not yet flashed ,as I am running SLI 680's (2GB reference) and do not want any problems,as I have not had even the slightest hiccup with GTX680 in almost 2 years.

I have tried to flash my unbranded Nvidia 680 with several 770 bios, My card is one that dell use in their alienware range pcs, I have tried so many bios flash that i dont think its working the card is still detected as a 680gtx and not a 770 in windows 8


also a weird thing is when i tried to flash a different bios from stock my computers bios screen no longer show or the gigabyte splash screen the monitor switches off until windows loads up to login screen then the monitor springs into life

i have used NVflash to flash the bios but i dont think i am doing this right


any ideas

Definitely don't ever buy Alienware again. But seriously , It probably isn't going to work. I was thinking about doing it ,but never did, and Glad I didnt ,as I sold my 680's for $200 each last month. Just sell it and get a 970 and be done!

I did not buy an alienware computer my computer is a custom build, the graphics card was bought on ebay which stated that it came out of a dell alienware build computer, the card has no branding so i do not know which make it is

Awesome! If you had held onto the 680 for another year,you would have had to give it to someone for free! Or maybe even pay someone to take it away! JK ,but there is only so long you should wait to upgrade ,as to not lose your entire investment!

Yes i totally agree while its nice to try and push the old work horse as much as possible sometimes you have just got to say thats enough I got my 970 gtx for a Bargain price off the bay £180 with free postage
it is the palit version and so far it has been a worthwhile investment I will probs wait after christmas and buy a second and sli them that should set me up for a few years as i don't upgrade often and the only games i really play the most are world of warcraft and battlefield 4 which both run steaming with this new card


It Crazy to see sellers on the bay still trying to sell their 680s for £180+ i am surprised if they even sell it
