I do apologise on behalf of my ignorance.

Galaxy are still around AFAIK. They just recently showed their GPUs with white PCB! biggrin.gif:D Not a fan but they do look amazing.

EDIT: Oh right you meant Xpertvision. Then no idea. :/

Ok i had a great day yesterday and not thinking of any harm i turn on my ghetto laptop and check the threads. Bum dam that went close to headbashing biggrin.gif . Thats for not looking at your threads on your crappy windowsphone. Well you guys are making it hard for me biggrin.gif . i can tell you my original gpu selection i had, befor i got to the 770. I had planned a 7950 OC 3GB Sapphire card or a 7970 Sapphire Vapor X or a 770. I really dont want to save on the gpu. Playing on ultra at more then 30 has to be a standard. and im really planning on getting more screens ( atleast 1 maby 2 ). Going Crossfire or SLI is also an option.

edit: i doesnt have to look good im putting it in a fractal design define XL R2
(dat name) so let the ugly girls play too ^^

Okay then drop then phantom tongue.gif It cooling is not that good for the noise it produces and it takes more than 2 slots ( which makes SLI more difficult).
Might look at a 780 too then if you want to go dual screens. 7970/770 are pretty much indistinguishable if you don't look to fps meter. But the 770s have much nicer/more silent coolers.

In my humble opinion you should only look at the MSI/Gigabyte/Asus. Check out these reviews and see for yourself. I linked you to the noise comparisons of each card. Performance is the same once you overclock. Fastest out of the box is Gigabyte or MSI I think. Without using any overclocking programs/fan speed control, the MSI is the most quiet out of the box.

I have a Gainward Phantom GTX 670 which:
1. doesn't overclock too well (+85 gpu and +300 memory)
2. has a factory modified pcb, therefore most reference full waterblocks will not fit
3. is not silent whilst under load

This may not apply to the GTX 770 and if you're not overclocking or water cooling you will be fine. I personally would not buy another Gainward again.
