the i5 2500k will be more than enough to push that 770 to the limits, so there will be no bottleneck thumb.gif

You shouldn't have any problems whatsoever, sounds very unlikely. You'll probably even be able to put two of them in there. You're going to love your new card, good luck!

ok, I caved and bought the GTX 770 SC with ACX cooler from amazon, and got a 10 dollar rebate, so im getting a SC for the price of a regular GTX 770! So excited, thanks to all for the advice and for posting in this thread!

I dont usually spend this much on GPUs, but I decided to treat myself since I got a little extra money laying around for my birthday and can sell my old GPU to make up the difference!
