Thoughts on the gtx 770?

Ok, the truth is I bought a msi twin Forzin 770 and would like some thoughts on it. Should I oc it? I have a i5 4670k that I can't oc yet because I need to get an after market cooler. Most coolers require me taking apart the whole system, so I'm not in a big rush.

It is a good card, and people generally like the MSI coolers. Nothing to be said here really.

The 7970 with 3 GB of VRAM is probably the better deal since you can find it for 65% of the price of a GTX 770 and the performance is quite comparable. Not to mention that you get 3 games with that promotion thing they have going.

There are some very good aftermarket coolers that are easy enough to install without having to take the whole motherboard out of the case. Especially if you have a case that exposes the back of the motherboard where the cooler is installed when you remove the side panel. Just look up some reviews on the coolers you are interested in.

It's a good card, but it's overpriced compared to other offerings on the market.
