EVGA 04G-P4-3778-RX GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Dual Classified with EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card Manufactured Recertified
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Got this card direct from EVGA right near a year ago for BF3. Never a problem. Yes it is a beast even in this Antec case but even now I wish I could afford another.

Cons: Yes I had to scrounge for power connectors. It's massive, only for the largest of cases and fans, fans, fans.

EVGA G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 DUAL SuperClocked 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card 04G-P4-3774-KR
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Whadda beast! Not for the faint hearted case or puny PSUs. It's huge even in an Antec 1200. Thanks goodness for SSDs and 2.5" HDDs.

Extremely quiet. Use 2x 8 pin power connection.

Preliminary tested BF3 with factory settings and ULTRA except for 2 non critical choices. Stunning night 'n day improvement over replaced GTX650.

Render ahead set 2, fps capped to 125, it felt like it was totally laid back, just getting started. On full COOP play (6 episodes) and Caspian fps general +/- 80, peaks +/- 115.
highest vid memory use 2697, high temp 68°C, power use 76%.

Max FX8350 use 52%

Cons: I didn't buy another one for SLI (yet).

I did feel better by lifting support the R side with zip ties as it does sag in the slot.

Documentation how to oc is lacking

Pros: Had this about a year - it is superb.

Have had it oc'd to 4.794 on ASUS Formula V, silk slick but currently 4.494 as Battlefield3 just won't handle it any higher which is BF3's detraction, not the chip..

I must have the pick of the litter on stock AMD fan. I'm not anywhere near deaf so I've never understood the flak on the fan because at 5 feet distance I can barely hear it in any well constructed case (currently Antec 1200). The 6 case fans plus the top helicopter fan far exceed any cpu cooler noise.

During winter with ambient temp 21°C it runs idle 33ish; under BF3 stress the maximum ever seen is 52°C. Summer ambient is 28°C but untested in the Antec 1200.

Cons: Bought at 2013 prices

Other Thoughts: Like the saying for the M1Carbine, "ya' just can't beat it".
