but thats not going to work, is it?

i just saw 760 FTW ACX 4gb for 370 eur smile.gif and the cheapest one is GB for 255 EUR
but i bought my GB 780OC for 600eur from another vendor, as the one above had it for 35eur more.

The 770 and 760 are actually really well priced.
not in my country see above, well we have 20% sales tax in my eu country

i have a 660ftw 3gb to be sold today possibly smile.gif and i had @1080 in crysis, BF3, skyrim 2.2gb+ and in crazy modded skyrim 2.5-2.67gb

PS: do you guys know which level in max payne 3 is vram intensive? my friend had on asus 670 direct cu 4gb vram usage over 3gb and please dont tell me tale of allocated vram smile.gif. when i looked into it i had like 2.5gb vram allocated in bioshock infinite @1440p while dedicated is 80mb less.

LOL 370€. That's just bad biggrin.gif The card isn't even released yet nor even announced when it's ready. Nor is it even finished yet. Or that's what I've been told by couple of folks from EVGA.

EU EVGA has listed the 4GB blower reference clocked for 279€ which seems a bit steep when etailers have listed it for ~260€.
So if the 4GB price for that reference blower really is 279€ then the FTW ACX could be 299€.
Also the 2GB reference clocked is listed for 199€. -> 279€ is 40% price premium. In US EVGA the difference is a little over 16%.
If EVGA would be reasonable the price premium should be no more than 20% -> 239€ for the 4GB reference clocked.
And when reference to SC is 10€ so the SC to FTW should be 10-20€.
FTW blower cooler would be 219-229€ and FTW ACX would be 259-269€

i have 660ftw evga 3gb and its on sale and i have like 5 people who want it for my advertised 165eur. i am selling it ASAP possibly today, and as I got AC3 (worth 35eur) with it, i am just out of 35+6 for Shipping eur altogether. but i guess i will have big trouble selling my gb 780oc few years down the road. its 600eur simply too steep price for people in my country smile.gif then again i dont think i will sell it, its great card for single 1440p

Hey, since the EVGA GTX 760 4gb "vanilla" uses the GTX 670 reference PCB, would I be able to put a waterblock made for GTX 670 on it?

If so, I'm gonna purchase it in the next week or so, if my calculations are correct smile.gif.

save yourself and do not purchase that card, it is incapable of utilizing 4GB's of VRAM.

I ran the 2GB version of the "vanilla" card (02G-P4-2760-KR) through CoolingConfigurator.com, and it gave the GTX 670 reference coolers as acceptable solutions.

I would presume the same would go for the 4GB "vanilla" variant (04G-P4-2766-KR) as well, but it's not explicitly listed on that site.

May I ask why?
I play a lot of games with modded textures that like to utilize a ton of VRAM, and the extra memory only costs 20-45 bucks extra.

I see, most of the wateblocks I've found have room for the extra memory modules.

Hawxie - the GTX 760 is not strong enough and will run out of horsepower before it can push 4GB of VRAM.
performance wise it's closer to the GTX 670 then it is the GTX 660 Ti look at the specs and remember the GTX 760 is a 6K mem speed
unlike the GTX 770..

so use this as a comparison.

The Bottom Line

We've given the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II 4GB video cards plenty of opportunities to prove to us why we would need 4GB of VRAM on these. Unfortunately, these have come short of proving this. We tried pushing a single ASUS GTX 670 4GB to the max on a 30" display, at more than playable settings, and also at 1080p. We saw no advantages with a single card. Then we put two together in SLI and tried to push them to the max at 5760x1200. What we found was that higher settings were possible to enable, but the performance wasn't there to allow them to be playable. Simply, the performance of GTX 670 isn't enough to utilize the capacity of 4GB of VRAM.

This is a shame, because the extra RAM has pushed up the pricing on the ASUS GTX 670 4GB to levels that are near Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and GeForce GTX 680 video cards at $459.99. Both of those video cards are clearly faster than GeForce GTX 670 GPU based video cards. So the extra money, doesn't buy us the extra performance we would want. Instead, the extra money, is better spent buying the faster GTX 680 or HD 7970 GHz Edition GPU based video card, to get better performance in games.

To make the 4GB of VRAM on the GTX 670 work for you, you are going to need at least three of them for 3-way SLI, to give you the performance to back up the VRAM. Or, we would also like to see 4GB of VRAM on 2-way GTX 680 overclocked, or even 3-way GTX 680. There are advantages to more VRAM, and 4GB can smooth out performance in a lot of games, but today's games are more GPU demanding than ever. These newer games require a lot of performance, and GTX 670 is already starting to show its age in today's latest games. We are already experiencing today the fact that we need faster GPUs in games like Far Cry 3 and Hitman: Absolution.

As it stands, if you want two good GeForce GTX 670 based video cards, stick with the 2GB models, and save some cash..

I see, but in my country, the GTX 670 is still at 2900-3000 danish kroners, while the most expensive and the only available variant of the EVGA GTX 760 is the 4gb one, and its 2295 danish kroners.
And I do want my next gpu to be from EVGA, and have the GPU boost 2.0.

[EDIT]
I meant the only available variant from EVGA that supports a waterblock.

well now that changes things.
