Hello,

I have a budget of 370$ and Looking to buy a GPU.

At the moment I'm stuck between two GPUs. Here they are:
EVGA: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-130-...
GigaByte: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-125-...

The GIGABYTE is a 4GB GPU and EVGA is only 2! But both have same amount of Core Clocks! Which one should I go for?

I have this PSU btw: http://bd.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3...

So will my PSU be able to cope with either of these two GPUs?

An answer will be appreciated.

The EVGA is better. and 4GB's won't help performance unless you exceeding 1080p or running games like skyrim with super high resolution mods... if you want Extra VRAM save money get a 780 or a 780 Ti with 3gb's of Memory

Well, Whether its a 780 or 780 Ti both exceeds my budget. Even if I buy one of these two then will my PSU be able to cope with this GPU? Please answer :)

I'd get the EVGA it's a great card! No your psu only does 18V +2 36A on with a minimum of 42A required on a single 12V Rail. You need a good quality Bronze Minimum 600W PSU

I agree you need a better PSU - single 12V rail, 600W or more (means 50A).

Get an xfx PSU as long as it says 600 bronze gold or platinum verified its great I'll suggest a EVGA 600B it runs great just look it up not hard to find and not expensive.

What if I buy this one mate? http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=120-PB-075...

And I'm afraid if they (EVGA) products are available in Asian Countries or not. :(

Yes I'm playing on 1080p mate. So I should go for the EVGA 2gb 770 GTX ? Will that be able to cope with all the upcoming Modern Games (Like Watch Dogs) and Give me the ability to play in ULTRA mode?

For a Power Supply, if you can't get the EVGA, try Corsair, Seasonic or XFX

The hx series of power supplies are very good. I personally don't like the evga acx cooler because of the fact a majority of them make a weird clicking noise. I'm not just going based on reviews but the experience that I have had with the card before I water blocked them. The ACX cooler only runs slightly cooler than the reference design. The gigabyte cards will come with a slightly more aggressive overclock, but from what I have heard the gigabyte cooler does run cooler than the acx. The acx uses a pressure optimized design but for what ever reason even when I tested the card on my test bench which is a completely open environment it still go fairly hotter than what I saw online about the gigabyte card. Just stay away from the ACX cooler if you can, I am guessing evga didn't polish everything out before they released the ACX cooler.

Well thanks for the information but still I'd ask, Are you sure a GPU that comes with the name specifically that it has a Cooling system inside gets a bit hotter than the Reference Design? (or GIGABYTE) ? Please confirm me on this point.

And yeah from what I have learned, Gigabyte is ahead of EVGA in most of the terms, Whether it's popularity or products. :(

What ever is cheaper for you, the hx and ax series are both very good. For the gigabyte vs evga I like evga but their new ACX cooler really just isn't there as far as the cooling performance goes vs the gigabyte version of the 770. So I would go with the gigabyte card and what ever power supply out of the two is cheapest for you

Well mate, What would you rank first? AX or HX? I'm really not going for the cheapest as I want the best possible PSU in that certain price!

And How about if I get the GIGABYTE 770 GTX Windforce Edition?

Yes the gigabyte windforce edition would be the best out of the two. Out of the AX and HX power supplies I would almost go for AXi series. Depending on which one that you get out of the AXi series they will either be semi modular or fully modular. They also have higher conversion efficiency from my experience with them. the nicest thing though is that would come with the AXI power supplies is that you would be able to have better cable management which is something that is really nice to have.

AX750 is made by seasonic - not the i series (made by Flextronics). The HX750 is mad by ChannelWell. I'd go the AX760 as Seasonic has the vbest of reputations. But if there's a Corsair made by Seasonic it's usually cheaper than the Seasonic version.

However, I have another question that has probably been answered many times, Is 780 really the best GTX at the moment? It pretty much resembles to the way TITAN works.

So I'd like to ask, Is it better to buy 770 with the budget I have or just gather up some money (Well, probably it would take a bit time) and buy the GTX 780?

The gtx 780 is kind of the sweet spot for price and performance. If you look at it from the original price pov of the gtx 770 and the original price of the 780 the 780 dropped about $200 where the gtx 770 only dropped about $70. The gtx 780 compared to all of the gtx 700 series video cards non ti really is the king of that series. A lot of the people who bought the gtx 770 when it originally came out are wishing they waited just because right now the gtx 780 is only about $40 more than what the 770 was back then. the gtx 780 is the sweet spot because it really shines in the benchmarks. Like the gtx 780 performs about 30-40% better than the 770 So if you look at it from the price point of view $350 for a decent gtx 770, $450 for a good gtx 780. So for about $100 you are getting a far superior price performance card. The gtx 770 I think is more so the card for people who just want a really good budget oriented card, but really you can build a system with a gtx 780 for about $1000 bucks atm which is amazing.

780Ti is currently the best GPU for gaming. You can now get a Titan Black - 6GB and overclocked but 50% more price than 780Ti.

Well Titan is really out of my reach. A thousand dollar GPU is really not what I'm looking for. Neither a 780 Ti cause it has the sightliest difference than 780!

So I'd go for 780, Well still I'd like to ask you as you're an expert, Will it be a Good buy?

Go back to the videocard benchmarking website and use price/performance to help judge that. A good buy also has to be within your budget.
