Best Black Friday deal!!! 12/04/2013
Runs @ 58c in my Rosewill Blackhawk case
60 FPS in GRID 2 on Ultra, maxed out Guild Wars 2, BF3 is getting about 75 FPS online.
Quieter than my previous cards.
Power ports aren't on the front of the card, but the side. Just personal preference it might not bother others, but you can see in the picture.
Bought this for 300$ on Black Friday. Amazing deal.!! Wanted the "Lightening" model with the dual fans, but this is just as good, the shader clock is just missing ~20mhz but that's no big deal. The other model was the same price as well, that card sold out within hours, I had to wait on Friday to get my check. No biggie though, I got this one and it's still a 770 with 1500 CUDA cores which was most important to me.
Bought this to replace 2 550ti Fermi's in SLI. I was extremely disappointed in SLI for gaming purposes. I never saw the second card utilized, ever. Except in Medal of Honor from 2010. It was just idling sucking up that 40w. So after a lot of choosing, I stuck with Nvidia, mostly for the SHIELD and driver support. Oh and PhysX, a lot of the games I play utilize their engine.
And I went with the 770 simply because the 50 and 60 cards are "enthusiast" based, and I wanted more of a serious card. With the 780 being a 500$ card, and benchmarks were putting the 770 right next to it, I saved the 200 and went with the 770. Then I waited for Black Friday. And oh my stars they had a deal on it!
Now I am not necessarily an Nvidia fan boy, my rig came with the single 550 and I went to SLI to get that 30% extra performance, that I never saw. And when a game did support it (I think AC3 used the second card) there were artifacts and glitches. No thank you.
So I went back to a single card, and it's beyond handled everything I've thrown at it today. NextGen proof for sure.

MSI GTX 770 to go with the mobo now :D !
I have pretty good faith in MSI, I've had their mobo for over a year now with no issues ever. Live Update utility is awesome. And now I have an MSI graphics card, so my faith is in that as well. Great company, will definitely build with them again.
