I'm looking to get a GTX 770 to replace my current GPU (Sapphire HD 7750) and I need to decide which is best or good for my PC.
My current Setup:
ASUS H61M-E Motherboard
500w Cougar PSU
8GB RAM
Intel Core i5 3470
Cougar Spike M-ATX Case. (will these cards fit in here)

These are the options I'm looking at:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Highest Out-of-the-box clock.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Is, somewhat, balanced between performance and cooling.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Is the coolest, but has lower stock clock.

Which of these will work best with my setup?
And as a side-note, can you recommend a PSU for the card?
Thanks in-advance!

I have a 550w XFX PSU. And It runs my Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB fine! Just make sure your power supply has atleast 30amps going down the +12Rail so it can power the card fine.

If I was you I would go for the Gigabyte version of the GTX 770 as It has amazing cooling and im my opinion the best out of all the other brands. It has 3 powerful fans and a really good stock heatsink!

Hope this helps!

the recommended watt usage is always much higher than what the gpu actually use under full load, 770 use about ~200-220watt under load



Thanks for clearing that up for me!

I would get the EVGA 02G-P4-2776-KR - has a good cooler and great price. EVGA customer support was great when I need to RMA an older GTX 460. I would go for an XFX 650 or Seasonic 650 for a psu. It will work on less but I always like some headroom.
