Which 770?

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
Just sold my Sapphire 7950 so I can upgrade to a 770. I didn't expect the 7950 to sell as fast as it did and haven't done any research yet as to *which* 770 to purchase.

Any pointers are very appreciated and will be thanked!

MSI Lightning or Galaxy HOF edition.

You should probably tell us your budget and where abouts you live wink.gif

Well like everyone above are posting what kind of resolution do you play with, what games and such. It will be another 2GB vs 4GB topic as again depends on the game, some games use a lot more vram than the other. Aside from that most of the time any 1080p game will run really well on a 770. For me personally I rank them at:

eVGA
Gigabyte/MSI
Zotac/PNY
ASUS

Haven't had any experience with Zotac or PNY, but ASUS is meh oh the RMA department, eVGA has really good warranty/RMA, Gigabyte and MSI are alright. (my opinion)

You also have to look at the cooler and if you want one with a custom PCB or what not as well is if you're sticking with the stock cooling, does it cool what you want it to, ram, vrms etc..

We're playing around with an ASUS 780 DC2 and it doesn't cover the vrms and ram for such a big cooler, granted air can flow between them but when you get to overclocking the vrms do get a little toasty so just be aware with that. If you don't do any or don't care then its fine. So pretty much are you getting what you want from the card you're going to get and for the purpose.

Things to look out for when purchasing:

Purpose? 1080p gaming? does it need 2GB or 4GB?
Brand? Warranty/RMA/Customer Support/Build Quality
Cooling? Custom PCB? Does it cover vrms etc..? back/inside plate?? (video card sag)
Looks? haha

On my side of the note, I have an eVGA 770 4GB SC... cooler is nice, does get a little loud when it ramps up and at max its almost a jet blower (yes I admit dc2 is a silent cooler lol), it covers all the components.. only thing that I'm looking at is the fan was making some noises so some say the hsf needs to be reseated which I will do soon, idle and load sounds fine but mid/ramping up it had this sqeeky annoying sound, more annoying than coil whine (which this card doesn't have), these have Hynix ram and able to push them pretty high. 120Hz gaming is nice on the card.

Probably don't need more than 2GB at my resolution. Sagging and adequate cooling is a concern as I like to OC. Looks are important but secondary, I do have a side window.
