So which is a better GTX 770 with 4 GB of vRAM?

EVGA

Gigabyte

I'm kind of leaning towards the EVGA version because EVGA seems to be more well renowned for Nvidia cards than Gigabyte, but its more expensive.

I generally lean EVGA due to their CS if you ever have an issue. Honestly though, you cannot go wrong with either card.

EVGA = better overall customer service based on people's opinions here, though Gigabyte has always responded me within 48 hours and readily offered me initiating a RMA when I had issues with my card.
Gigabyte = an awesome cooler and (in my experience) quite appropriate CS.

Go with what is the cheapest or appeals to you most, both have top notch CS as others have posted

Gigabyte's Windforce is pretty much tops when it comes to custom air coolers. It should run cooler and quieter than that EVGA.

Plus the EVGA card is way overpriced... I wouldn't pay over 500 for a 770. At that point why not just get a 780?

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to go with the Gigabyte. I got a email from Newegg with a coupon code for 20% off for case fans so I'll be getting a pair of Noctua NF-F12s as well for my H80i along with the 770.

EVGA, if I hadn't just done a new SSD, I'd show you the research I did behind all of this. The EVGA has better power support and better cooling.
