Pros: Great fans cool the 770 and allows a little more performance than the stock. 4GB memory comes in handy even with my 1080p monitors and I'll explain how below. Pricing at the time was on sale at 70 below MSRP and came with three games.
Cons: The packaging was extremely cheap. The the product was packed in one of those thick plastic/anti-theft looking annoying boxes.
Other Thoughts: The reason why I went with the 4GB version instead of the 2GB version was because I enjoying adding modifications to games such as Skyrim. I noticed with high texture mods the VRAM would exceed 2GBs which would have restricted my wish to push this game to it's limit. WIth this card I am able play heavily modded games with minimal lag.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I purchased this card when it was on sale with an additional mail in rebate so it came down to just about the 2GB price range. I use only two 1080p monitors and 4 GB would usually be overkill; however, I use a lot high resolution texture add-ons on games such as Skyrim and Oblivion and they easily surpass the 2 GB threshold. I usually get around 60fps where I use to get roughly 30fps with an older generation AMD 2gb HD7850. I'm extremely happy with my purchase.
Cons: The packaging was very lame. It came in a clear plastic case inside a standard box. For 450 dollars I'd expect at least foam or something that makes the card look important. Just my rant.READ FULL REVIEW
