what is the difference between the 2. please be exact.
The second one as it features the ACX cooler (better cooler will help the boost clock raise more as cooling will be better)
they're surely the same card but with different cooler, that's it... 3gb vs 2gb of ram, unless you run more than 1 monitor don't really affect the performance...
i would pick the http://www.frys.com/product/7717518?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG as the cooler will help achieve higher boost clock, that's it...
Fry's says one has 2 GB, one has 3 GB but I believe both are actually 2GB
02G-P4-2774-KR is EVGA SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooling w/ 2 fans which pushed air inside case ($420), Core Clock = 1111MHz, Boost Clock = 1163Mhz, 1 x DVI-I and 1 x DVI-D
02G-P4-2771-KR is EVGA SuperClocked w/o ACX cooling w/ 1 fan which pushes air outside the case, Core Clock = 1085MHz, Boost Clock = 137MHz, 2 x DVI
You will have to hit REPLY and quote my post then copy paste the entire link to make it work....new THG software truncates the long link.
personally, I'd take the 770s from Asus, MSI or Gigabyte as historically they have custom PCB's and VRM's with more phases for better OC ability
