Which manufacturer/model of the GTX 770 should I buy? Keep both price & performance in mind. Also, it's worth noting that the graphics card will be a tight fit without tons of room, so a model with slightly better cooling would be much preferred over a couple fps gain. :)

EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Dual Superclocked ACX

EVGA is said to be the best brand for Nvidia graphics cards.

This card has probably the best performance and cooler of other 770s. Since its superclocked and has a nice cooler on it.

MSI lightning is best hands down. But its not worth the added price. But I agree with SnakeGTX, the evga dual acx. Same card as I have and neither card ever has any problems.

That card certainly did look better than the others I've seen, but it's about $40 more than the Asus one.

The thing that confuses me though is this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Isn't the only difference that the second one has dual bios and comes with Watch Dogs? Yet it's cheaper... why?


The Asus one seems to be the same price at around $330.

That is strange, the dual bios is suppose to be better. They both do come with watch dogs. It just must be Newegg being weird again with all their prices.

Here is the EVGA one for $330 (Without watch dogs)

Honestly, you asked for the best 770. That answer would be msi lighting. Yet because of its overall normal price being so high, the evga takes the best card then. But msi, asus, evga all make great cards. If you can get an asus and watchdogs for cheaper, then go for it. $40 difference, probably not worth it. As for an evga without watchdogs. Well you can sell watchdogs for $30-40, so don't see how that's any better.

I disagree. EVGA is an amazing brand. He didn't say the best cooler, he said the best brand in general, and that would be EVGA.

MSI is a great brand, but I don't really trust them much, because they lie about the military grade III components. Its all just a marketing thing.

the MSI lightning proved to be the best by a fair margin on any professional review/benchmark. Thereby making it the best card. Evga is yes an amazing brand, but their cards are no better than asus, msi, gigabyte. Their warrenties are nice, yes, brand is nice, yes. But OP asked for the best card, and in those exact terms, its the MSI Lightning.
