Galaxy GTX 770 GC 2GB vs Asus GTX 770 DirectCU II OC 2G
Which performs better? What makes the Asus more expensive?
To be honest with you I'm not an expert on graphics cards, but I think it would be better to just get the galaxy gtx 770 if you want to save some money. The Asus is more expensive because it has a tiny bit more enhanced performance than Galaxy's version. In conclusion I recommend getting the Galaxy gtx 770 because its not worth paying 10$ for that much of a tiny performance increase when you could be using it on other things such as actual games.
Asus version has:
~Boost in performance, can be overclocked higher.
~Heatpipe design makes it much cooler. (As in less temperature)
~Much quieter fan
~Because of it's previous specs, it can last twice as longer in comparison even when overclocked.
Personally I'd go for Asus version because I can push further and it can last longer. Been playing a few games with it now with ultra settings, I don't hear any sound made by it, it's just so quiet.
