EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Dual SuperClocked 4GB

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
So I'm building a custom gaming PC for the first time and I have questions regarding a graphics card I am looking into buying.
The EVGA GTX 770 4GB SuperClocked card has definitely caught my attention -- I was wondering if this card is capable of completely MAXING OUT all the modern games like Crysis 2, Battlefield 3, COD: MW & Black Ops, Skyrim, CS: Global Offensive, etc.etc. And with FPS between 60 - 100.

I have a single monitor (Hanns G HW223DPB 22 inch) that has a maximum resolution of 1680 x 1050 I believe. I have been told just one 770 GPU will be necessary. I had been looking into buying two 770s and using SLI with them to get maximum performance - would having SLI with two 770s make a big difference in framerate than just having a single 770? That is my main concern. I need maximum performance with this new custom PC. I need ultra high settings with 60+ fps with demanding games like Crysis.

Here's the rig that I am going to be building very soon -- all the hardware I'm purchasing via newegg.

Computer Case: Antec 1200 V3 ATX Full Tower
Power Supply: Antec HCP-1300 Platinum 1300W ATX12V
Motherboard: MSI Z87-GD65 LGA HDMI SATA 6Gb/s ATX Extreme OC Triple CFX/SLI
CPU/Processor: Intel Core i7 4770K Haswell 3.5 GHz
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (4 X 4GB) 240 pin DDR3
Hardrive: Western Digital Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s

Graphics Card: Nvidia EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Dual SuperClocked 4GB
Optical Drive: LITE-ON Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit)

first of all there is NO WAY you need a 1300 watt PSU unless you are looking to run FOUR 7970s!

try a nice 750 watt one, even for a 770 SLI set up.

also a 770 will use 4gb only if you run a multi monitor set up along with SLI. if you are going single monitor @ 1080 2gb is enough thumb.gif.

edit: my bad, running @1050? dude one 770 2gb will rock your world, no problem.

I don't have time to go over your build, but I've got a suggestion or two that'll help you save money and get you better performance.

I'd bet he could run 3 of those monitors with a 2GB card.

I run 770s sli with a 144hz 1080p, 60hz 1080p, and a 1366x768 monitor. One will run them just fine, just don't expect all ultra settings and playing across all three.

That psu is plain ridiculous, go 750w. You don't really need dominator platinums, get some vengeance pro's or something. If you're just going to be gaming get an i5. now with the money you saved get yourself a good 1080p or 1440p monitor. even if you sli 770's, you won't be pushing much more than 2gb because of the limited memory bandwidth, I'd recommend getting a 780.

So a single GTX 770 should be able to handle most games at ultra settings with great FPS? If so, then I'll definitely be sticking to one 770. So two 770s wouldn't make much a difference than having one 770 then? Especially since I have one monitor

At your resolution of 1680x1050, yes. A single GTX 770 would absolutely destroy anything you'd want to play. Even mostly on 1080p if you decide to upgrade. Only if you plan on going surround (triple monitor) 1080p, or 1440p, will you need the second GTX 770.

Made that up for you. Would save you money in the long run with a build like this over what you are getting. You are overspending a ridiculous amount on certain components such as your PSU/RAM/HDD. The motherboard is up to you though imo, both the UD3H and the GD65 are solid boards. Just personally like the UD3H over the GD65 because you can't see the traces on the UD3H like the GD65.
