Yes I just noticed that. Only 170watt tdp. GPUs sure have gotten power efficient. That's only 20 wart higher that 1 if my gts250's and I have no doubts would litterally crush both of them. So then that begs the question 760sc 2gb/4gb or 770sc 2gb? If I remember correctly the 760 4gb is close to the price of the 770 2gb. How likely are we to use more than 2gb of vram in the next few yrs? I couldn't justify going much higher than that price wise considering its still kinda up in the air as to if I'll actually get back into windows gaming regularly.

Are you going for a higher then 1080P monitor?

if you are then 4 GB might come in handy

But for 1080P or lower 2 GB is more then enough at least for most games

Again i am not really a video card expret my main area are PSU´s

I doubt I'll be going higher than 1080p. At least not anytime in the near future. I'll be using my current monitor for as long as I possibly can. Even for being a monitor that's 6 yes old the picture quality still rivals that of a lot of the more recent monitors I've seen. With the exception of the 1440 monitors which I do see a point of upgrading to...if it ain't broke don't fix it. I only questioned the vram issue because I've seen varied rumors on bf4. Some saying 1.5-1.8 vram and some saying 2.5-3. But they never said if it was 1080 or 1440. Or even what the various quality settings were. I remember with everyoneused to say 1gb of vram was overkill...oh how times have changed it seems.then again that was back around the time everyone said it took a 295 to run crysis too...speaking if which I never was able to really get into that game...just not my style I guess.

Well i could talk about VRAM in games

I hear you there. I would be the same way on PSU's so I get what you mean. I think I'll just go with a 2gb 760. I can always use evga's stepup program if it proves to be a tad lacking and just pay the difference. I'm actually starting to get anxious for tax time to come...so I can get to building I'm willing to bet the performance difference is going to be jaw dropping to going from a pull 955 @3.9 to this new system. I'm gonna be like a kid on Xmas morning.

@shilka slight update. while I'm in the process of finalizing the parts list I've been offered a pair of evga 770 sc's 2gb versions with the evga acx coolers. In like new condition and my choice of 1 of 3 psu's for $400.

All 3 are evga psu's. The choices are supernova g2 1000w, p2 1000w or g2 1300w.

Both 1000w are still basically brand new they were only opened to be tested.

The 1300 has been in service for maybe 2 months.

All still carry the 10yr warranty. Now I've read the reviews and they seem to be rather stellar. I also know these are based on super flower leadex designs so they should be quality PSUs.

I also know that they are likely to be more power than I'm likely to need even after I have my water loop setup but they seem like a great deal.

My question is what is your opinion of these PSUs? Is this actually as good of a deal as I think it is? If it was you what would you personally go with if you were offered this same deal?

If you overvolt your two GTX 770 then you might need 1000 watts

I say go for the P2 as its a little bit better then the G2

By better i mean that the P2 has a hybrid fan mode added and the CapXon capacitors have been replaced

Thanks for the input. Yes I read that the caps were replaced on the p2. At the modular board correct? No issues with the +5Vsb being kinda low at 2.5a? Although I dont run a lot of USB devices (i read somewhere that everything usb pulls from that rail) that would actually draw power...just USB wireless mouse and wired keyboard, personal media player, sometimes charge my phone and run a game controller. Then my printer but that shouldn't actually draw power from the port

Thats the 5v rail not the +5Vsb

+5Vsb is for when your PC is off and you want to change stuff when it not on
