ASUS GTX770-DC2OC-2GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Powerful for the money
- Reliable
- Quiet
- Easy to overclock

Cons: - It's large
- Requires 2x PCI-E power cables
- Still not cheap

Other Thoughts: It's ran for 13 months without a single issue. The overclocking software is extremely easy to use, even to those without techy knowledge.

I upgraded from a GTX560 and was really impressed with the performance increase with the GTX770. I bought the GTX770 when it was still $415 and it still chews up every game.

If you're looking to upgrade to a new GPU but not willing or able to drop $800 for a titan, this card will serve you well.

ASUS GTX770-DC2OC-2GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Amazingly fast and stays cool, despite factory + custom OC settings. Currently using ASUS GPUTweak to bump GPUBoost to 1250mhz, memclock at 7010, fan speed to 70%. Still very quite, compared to my GTX560 and I haven't seen it rise above 61ºC even under major stress (Metro/Crysis3/Arma3).

Cons: - Only 2GB of ram GDDR5, but doesn't matter too much.
- It's a big card, make sure you have tons of room
- Takes 2 PCIE power cables, be sure your PSU has two or more

Other Thoughts: Everything I've thrown at this card it just chews up and spits out. Hands down, it's the biggest boost in GPU performance I've ever noticed when upgrading.

My GTX560 would often be sub-30fps when playing BF3 on 64 player maps (on low settings). Now I can run on ultra settings, 1080p and not drop below 60fps. I'm really blown away by it.

Above this card you've got the GTX780 and Titan. The Titan is only 24% faster and costs $600 more. Skip the top end, go right into the butter zone and pick up this card. You will -NOT- be disappointed.

Thermaltake Frio Overclocking-Ready Intel Core i7 (6-core ready) & i5 Compatible Five 8mm Heatpipes Dual 120mm Fans Intel & AMD Universal CPU Cooler CLP0564 - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Installed on an ASUS P8P67 Pro Rev3 board with an i5 2400K. Easy instructions and easy installation.

Cons: Sink is obscenely large, was unable to mount the second fan to the unit, as it would require me to remove a ram module. My ram has large heatsinks on them, so that's also to blame.

Other Thoughts: Using stock sink on the CPU, I would idle between 30-36ºC and peak between 60-65ºC

With the Frio installed, I'm idling at 20-21ºC and peaking no higher than 50ºC under full load. That's a 15º drop on air alone. The Arctic Silver hasn't even set in yet and I'm also only using one of the heatsink fans (on medium speed). Just amazing performance.
