770 questions

post #1 of 11

http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/2yIk7

This is my current build, and I am looking into getting a 770 and because I am limited to a budget I have picked the cheapest version, of course I could go above and beyond. I am not entirely limited but I would like to save my money up.

So the card is question is the Zotac 770

Is there anything I should be concerned about with the card, does it run quiet and relatively cool? is it reliable, would it be in my best interest to grab a more reliable 760? keep it or change the manufacturer?

Thanks in advance, also if it is an okay card can I have some fan suggestions.

Nothing at all wrong with Zotac, Just not the most popular, but reliable in my experience.
Also that cooler looks much better than stock, just make sure you have plenty of airflow as that card doesn't exhaust the heat out of the back , but dumps it in the case.. smile.gif

Well for the time being I am playing at 780p, but soon I will upgrade to a higher resolution since the 770 is a bit overkill for 780p.

I also play on trying to max everything if possible. Will be playing pretty much every new game on the PC, and a lot of crysis 3.

Also someone suggested a 550w psu and I am a bit skeptical of this since it says 600w min and the card takes around 450w

A 450w psu is enough for a singlestock clocked 770gtx witha stock clocked cpu

The GTX 770 has a max TDP is 230W. It will draw more if loaded to 100% and overclocked, but not more than 275-300W.

TDP is not power comsumption neither is near to be the same.

680/770gtx tdp is about 200/230w which is the heat that be handled by the heatsink


Meanwhile 770gtx max power consumption while gaming is



I dont know why People give wrong information

Max TDP figure I quoted is directly from NVidia for the chip itself. It doesn't include RAM, VRM losses, etc. The 180W you listed in that table above is gaming power consumption, which is lower than some benchmarking, mining, and compute tasks. It's also stock clock consumption.

It also shows GTX Titan at 238W, I've measured mine at 280W+ while rendering.

Take those charts with a grain of salt.
