What GeForce GTX 770 - 2GB should I get?

Getting to that stage where I'm wrapping up my build and trying to shave off some dollars. I was originally planning on the EVGA 770 2GB but then noticed it was a bit more exspensive and I began looking around. I had no idea how many 770's there were! How do I decide??

  1. Overclocking or no?

    I would get the msi because it is the cheapest and works just fine and it is quite quiet. Plus it is less prone to dust buildup.

    I was shying away from the MSI because I didn't see anything about the turbo boost technology that the other ones have. Might be OC down the line but not for a while probably, I wanted to leave it open to me though.
  3. If you leave it stock, and like good customer support: EVGA
    If you overclock ASUS.

    Asus carries the highest quality, "best" cooler.
    EVGA has the highest base clocks.
  4. EVGA all the way.

    If I understand correctly, according to Newegg specifications Gigabyte has a higher base clock and boost clock? Wouldn't that make the Gigabyte better?

  6. It doesn't matter. WE are talking like 5 fps difference between cards, which means almost nothing.

    If overclocking go for the one with a better cooler, if not then get the cheapest one.

    They are close enough to not make a difference, and the ACX cooler is better. EVGA also carries the higher memory clock speeds.

    It looks like only the 4GB versions have the higher base clock? Is it a fluke?

    Does it matter? ~20 mhz means NOTHING in performance.
  10. Sometimes Newegg gets those speeds wrong, either way its not worth the sacrifice in cooling or customer service.
