Kinda hate Nvida for pulling a fast one like this...Was thinking of a 770

In the future you know for games like Bf4 and better so I can max it out and probably get 60frames but now I see that the awesome titan one with the best cooler is WAY more expensive than any other 770s. That to me is appalling. Like really you advertised this card with the Titan cooler and just shoot the price way higher than any other 770?? Why can't they be normal priced? Not only does it look like one of the better coolers but the glowing 770 Logo is a big sell for me cause it would look awesome shining through my case. I know a lot of people don't care about that, but I love that gimmicky **** haha


Either way. I heard that these are basically 680s or OC'd 680s?. I forgot which one, they look like a nice card for what you're getting besides the price is a little up there but since you get a free $50 dollar game with most of them it kinda pays for that part.

If I don't have enough by than. I mine as well just get the DX12 cards when they come out and upgrade my CPU to a 3770k when those DX12 cards are out. Since that is the best CPU I can get for my mobo.

Because they know people like you will pay through the nose for that gimmicky s***. Razer, for example, has based their entire business on that premise.

I think 600 and 700 series use the same chipsets, so from my understanding better made and more efficient. But not like Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge in scope.

There's nothing great about the Titan cooler, apart from looks. Hell, I'd even say that ASUS's DCU2 cooler looks better.

Well maybe an MSI one would even cool better if they use the Frozer3 or 4 now. Only issue I have with MSI is they didn't put cooling sinks on their memory for a long time during the Frozer 2 generation and you would get pre mature memory failure. It sucked.

and if you think this looks better than the Titan cooler than you are out of your mind lol... The titan cooler is sleek and looks like a nice card not some aftermarket ricer crap like Asus heatsink's look like lmao

the titan cooler version is more expensive because they have to special order them from nvidia and they cost more than a normal cooler.

thats why.

Titan cooler is actually quite good. It's about as good as you can get for a SFF/closed case build build
