Sorry I'm kind of a noob to computers, I read the Faq but It didn't seem to address my question clearly.
Basically these are the same card but the model is a little different I believe.

They just look slightly different, is that a big deal?

They will work but there is a micro-stutter issue for the 1Gb cards. Do a little search on it and decide whether it is worth it to you.

I did some research it should be much of an issue now, but It was when a few months ago.... apparently.

Buy a better single card set up for 250 dollars instead!

I agree, instead of buying two cards now, take the money and buy a single card. A gtx 660ti, or a 7950, or probably even a 7870 will be able to perform the same or better than two 7770's. Not to mention that then you don't have micro stuttering and compatibility to worry about.

Now I see you just posted you already have one of them, as stated before, yes they will work together.

Yes I own the one from Amazon already.


Go for it, then. It should be a pretty decent performance upgrade.

I assume your power supply can handle both cards? (Has the extra 6-pin and the wattage to handle it)
