Just bought a Gigabyte GTX 770 4g overclock

#1I_see_a_ninjaPosted 9/24/2013 5:32:24 AM
So aside from the fact that I'm a completely noob at this computer building thing, I'm having buyer's regret right now. I was torn in between the 770 4g or the 780, ultimately in the end I chose the 770 4g. Can you guys shed some light on the video card I bought?

Bought with intentions to mod the crap out of skyrim (2k, 4k, enbs, etc), video editing, school)

Specs:

I7 4770k
16 g sniper ram
650 seasonic PSU
GTX 770 4g overclocked
asus z87 pro 1150
Samsung 128g ssd
Seagate 1t 7200 rpm
hyper 212 evo

You really should have bought a 7970.

That was on my list too but, there were far too many negative reviews about overheating and such with Radeon so I dropped it.

There are no overheating issues with Radeon. If a specific card from a specific manufacturer has overheating issues, that's another matter.

Don't listen to him--the 7970 and GTX 770 are pretty much equal.

I'm still using a 1gb 560ti if it makes you feel better.

That'll probably be me in the next 7 years where everyone is on 10xxx series and I'm still on the 7xx series!

Aside from all that, I have a MacBook Pro with a Radeon 6450 in there. I swore up and down after buying the darn thing and couldn't really play games on it due to it's GPU. I haven't been a fan with Radeon or Apple since.

you'll be glad for that extra VRAM down the road. Bioshock Infinite already uses more than 2GB

So you bought an extremely low-end card and were disappointed by its performance? Doesn't that seem a little stupid to you?
