Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Other Thoughts: 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.
