Time to upgrade my GPU. Having trouble justifying price of GTX 770 over GTX 760.

Just get a 760 and save up for another 760 to SLI. SLI 760s are more powerful than a 780Ti and cheaper as well.

But then I'd have to get a bigger PSU. Don't think 600W would handle the SLI. >_>

It's basically between:

I'm pretty sure the only difference between the two GTX 770s below is that one is overclocked and the other is not, right? Otherwise they are the exact same?

Because I can just overclock it myself and save money. O_o

Threw my system specs into this and with 2 GTX 760s it recommended a little over 500 watts (521 to be exact).
2500k @ 4.4, 1 SSD, 2 HDD, 4 sticks ddr 3 ram, x2 GTX 760, 1 DVD drive, couple 120mm case fans.

People often really over estimate the power needed to run things.


Hm, I guess they really try to sucker people in to buying massive PSUs for no reason, lol.

I think, with my level of technical experience, that I may be better off sticking to a single card for the time being. I've heard of some issues in certain games with SLI, as well. I think I'll be fine just avoiding it for now.

Is this part correct?

Factory OC cards guarantee stable operation at those speeds, and typically, that means chips that don't comfortably hit those speeds are cut, resulting in a higher average OC.
It's mostly just luck though, and yes, you can just overclock it yourself.

Thanks, Dark. I'll save some money, go with the non-SC version and just do some light OCing myself.

As much as I want to save a little money, I think these numbers are worth the $80.

Go with gtx 770 , you would probably regret it if you went with 760.

I've got the non-superclocked EVGA GTX 770 w/ ACX Cooler in my shopping cart right now. =)

Scratch that. For some reason, BH Photo Video's checkout option is unavailable for the next 3 and a half hours... Lame.
