Performance will be identical *unless* you are running at 2560 x 1600 or higher (5670 x 1080). That is the only time that the 4GB model will outperform the 2GB model.

The clocks are identical on both cards, so no difference there.

EVGA is the better known brand, so it is going to be more expensive, so for Value the Zotac would be better, and from what I have heard they are well made.

I like the 4GB card, even on a normal 1920x1080 resolution. Crysis 3 is dangerously close to crossing that 2GB boundary and other games are sure to cross it in the near future.

"Hmm Got it"

The best answer is the EVGA GTX 770 w/ ACX http://amzn.to/12iIbiR

Hahaha... yeah i saw that too, he is everywhere and saying the same thing. But i just taking it easy. He is a "Party Maker" thats what i said, But that also will bring negative image for him.
People will start to think, he is just throwing random stuff or he is a very big fan of that part which makes him bias or he is just that proud of that item, maybe he own it.

Interesting, this is new perception i have. Hmm every year there is new build of system recommended.
Guess the game requirement will be that fast to evolve to. Make Sense.
Now the next question is, do we all agree that it is better to get EVGA GTX 770 CLASSIFIED 4GB instead of ZOTAC GTX 770 2GB AMP to avoid the possible regret after we buy. Because not that long after that, we all find that game minimum requirement just went up.

Here is a review of the Zotac AMP! card. Apparently it comes with three "Splinter Cell" games:
Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Splinter Cell: Conviction and the soon-to-be-released Splinter Cell: Blacklist. They found that the AMP!'s Turbo Boost consistently went up to 1280 MHz, while the Palit Jetstream card, clocked exactly the same, only went up to 1255 MHz. The AMP! card also comes with overclocked memory at 7200 MHz, leading to a slight edge in benchmarks over the Jetstream. The Jetstream was ever so cooler and quieter, just slightly.

Yep, thats right. That is the reason why it is worth it for Zotac AMP to be in one ring with EVGA new Classified 4GB. Base and Memory Clock are equal. That is why it is worth it to hear more from all the PRO in this field

To be completely honest, I personally would go with the 770 Lightning from MSI.

I have the 680 Lightning, and those cards are incredibly well made, and *fast*

They also have great overclocking headroom if you want to push them a little more, and they run very cool.

Only downside is that the cards are large. Make sure you have a case that can support them.

As far as build quality, noise levels, cooling and overclock potential, absolutely it is better than the Zotac. In regards to factory clocks it is identical.

The only downside to it is that it is still a 2GB card.

I have the same concern because ZOTAC also has 4GB variant which is priced $20 more than the AMP! edition. But when I think about it, if Crysis 3 will use that huge amount of ram, I don't think I would be getting the 4GB anymore because most likely the card itself couldn't show enough frames with that high level of detail so High RAM would be useless. In terms of future games I would still not hold on to it, because we have Maxwell and Pirate Islands so a better card is coming.

Going back if its between Zotac and EVGA, I would go with the cheapest, cards perform the same in gaming but not in cooling and acoustics thats where you decide. Zotac is a reliable brand for me, their company is the same as Sapphire which makes AMD cards and just last year they overtook Asus in shipping more graphic cards. I currently own a Sapphire card and its very good both Zotac and Sapphire get high reviews and recommendations and doesnt have the same cheap-brand image that Inno3d or Palit has.

I'd say get the Zotac now, or if planning to SLI the 4GB variant will be a very good choice.

Cheers :)

Sorry guys, been away from town for so long. I work outside of town, in kinda jungle. So i just came back and read the post.
Well guys, when i was about to buy the Zotac as my decision did. I pick the recently came out card. Gigabyte Windforce 3xOC 4GB. And it is not a dissapointment at all. the price also tag at the right amount plus the splinter cell blacklist. It also fit the perfect need of 1 caard 4GB. So hahaha guys i bought the card already and i will say its tho thumbs up for it. I recommend it. If any of you have same situation as me. Go and try my pick of product.
