Best GTX 770 to purchase?

So I have decided to go with the GTX 770.
Now I am stuck on, which 770 will be the best one to purchase?

I am wanting the best performance for gaming, reliability, and lowest temps. I really want to keep my card cool and safe.

I prefer the look of the EVGA and just because they are well known and usually reliable.. but the ASUS doesn't look bad looks wise either, but I personally think the MSI cards on this 770s are ugly.. but if they are my best choice then I guess I will just have to roll with it.

  1. Best answer
    If you want the best GTX 770, go for Gigabyte GTX 770 Windforce OC 2.

    That is the coolest and quietest GPU around with 3 coolers (triple fans) running. The best in class.

    If you can't find it, then EVGA is the way to go.
  2. I would go with the EVGA, its dual fan and overclocked with a backplate.
  3. For the $400 price range, I'd buy the Gigabyte one cuz it is clocked higher out of the box.

    If you are willing to bump up to $450 then get the MSi Lightning.
  4. I will be gaming at 1080p.. would I be better off getting one of the 770 4gb versions when they come back in stock or EVGA releases theirs?

    For one monitor, 2GB is plenty. 4GB versions of GPUs are for gaming on 3 monitors. If you plan to game on 3 monitors, then get a 4GB; otherwise 2GB is plenty.

    :( idk which one to purchase.
  7. I am mostly leaning towards the EVGA. As the new cooler looks nice and seems to keep up with if not cool better than the Asus.
  8. EVGA is the winner out of two. It is factory superclocked but is out of stock on newegg .. :)

    Sorry to highjack, but what VRAM variant would you go for, for a single monitor 1440p or 120Hz

    2 GB is enough for that. At most 3 GB.
