Hi Everybody,

I'm building my first comp ever (full component list here: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1693514/computer... ) And I got the suggestion to get the GTX 770 instead of the GTX 670.

I chose the GTX 670 because I've seen it reviewed very well in many places, including here at Tom's Hardware:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...

Right now, I've only ever played SC1, SCBW, SC2 WoL, and SC2 HoS on the computer (Those are all the StarCraft games btw). I'm not a big comp gamer, and I NEVER play First Person Shooters. I just want a card that will work well if I ever do decide to play a game on the comp.

One thing to note is I'm looking for reliability as well as performance/value. If the 770 is "new" technology (i.e. no track record), or has a shorter lifespan, I'm probably not going to be interested.

Oh, I should mention I don't plan to overclock, but it's possible that some day I will do it.

GTX 770 is only a little more than a GTX 670. It may be a good buy, but if you don't require its performance, save your money on something like GTX 670, GTX 660 Ti, or even go the AMD route with HD 7950 or HD 7970.

The GTX770 is a rebatched of GTX680. Still the GTX680 is faster than the GTX670 abit in performance and gaming :)

A 770 runs faster than a 680 (about 5-10%, from what I've seen) and a 680 runs about that much faster than a 670. So, since a 770 is only ~$30 more for 10-15% more performance, I would definitely choose it over the 670.
