Which is worth getting? At the moment the Zotac card is 410$ and the EVGA card is 460$. Are 50 extra dollars worth it for EVGA's cooling or is Zotac's good enough?

Zotac are good but known to be little noisier.

I prefer the MSI and the Asus ...

Go with the EVGA everyday, good quality cards and they perform very well.

The ACX cooling system is also very good, and with the Nvidia GPU Boost technology you will have a better chance of it achieving a higher overclock due to the coolness of the card.

But another aspect to consider is to ensure your whole case has good cooling as case cooling can have a dramatic effect on high or low gpu temps.

I wouldn't say EVGA is worth $50 more but the EVGA 770 is the better card.

Looks like I will go with the EVGA, I've heard a lot of good stuff about the ACX cooling and I haven't exactly had a great experience with Zotac cards in the past, I wouldn't say Zotac is bad but meh. EVGA's card is under a "limited quantity' at the moment but hopefully in the near future when a higher stock is aquired I can price match it and get 20-40$ back (I have 30 days)

I am sorry , but if you are paying 460$ you should get the 4G Version

I'm stuck with a gift card for Futureshop/Bestbuy (contest) and so far I have been price matching everything that I purchased, I am a frugal person and I would have got my parts at Newegg or Tiger Direct but I did get some great deals compared to Newegg and such. I can't price match the card because it's marked as limited quantity http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/evga-com-evga-gefor... but in a couple of weeks it should be unmarked as a limited quantity item and I could price match it with either Newegg or Tiger Direct -> http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... for example

try to find the 4G version then where you plan to buy ... I heard somewhere that Crysis 3 needs 2.2 G exactly ... look for what suits you but with the 4G version.
