N e 1 have trouble w/ gtx 770 freezes

#11wizardmonPosted 5/12/2014 7:21:27 PM
I just picked up a Gigabyte 4GB Windforce 770, runs everything I throw at it really quietly compared to my single fan HD 6950.

Currently playing Skyrim with ENB/texture mods at 1440 at 60FPS and World of Tanks at almost all max aside from a few settings which I prefer off to reduce distractions at 3200, 1800 at 60FPS.

Cooler Master GX - 750W Power Supply


As far as I know that PSU even new can only supply about 600W. So the PSU might be something to consider when looking at this problem. For now tho, run some tests and lets see if anything sets it off.


Thanks I'll try to do it this week if i get a chance. Damn family takes up all my time now...

You shouldn't be the 770 GTX can't even utilize the 4gb of memory properly. You would see no performance increase from it.

Skyrim uses 2.7GB of memory with my subsampling/+AA and mods

2GB wouldn't have done it for me. It was 365$ on Amazon for like, a few hours when I sniped it.

There is one last thing to note with Max Payne 3: It would not normally allow one to set 4xAA at 57601080 with any 2GB card as it claims to require 2750MB. However, when we replaced the 4GB GTX 770 with the 2GB version, the game allowed the setting. And there were no slowdowns, stuttering, nor any performance differences that we could find between the two GTX 770s.

Well that's fine and dandy, but where they actually recording the ingame memory usage with any diagnostic tools? Does the MP3 exe/game engine actually even allow the GPU/system RAM to use more than 2 GB in the first place? I have to run a few different applications and patch various parts of my Skyrim to allow it to use more than 2GB at all.

Yes, inside buildings and caves I don't use much more than 1.3GB of Vram, but when I'm out overlooking a huge expansive landscape with a modified gridloading extended LoD settings it uses more than 2GB. Does this translate into framerate? Probably not, but if I had to wager what it is effecting is my load times.

Okay I ran the stress test for about 30 45 minutes this morning everything seemed fine so I don't think of the card. Oddly enough I had no freezes or restart switch honestly I thought that was kind of strange. But I guess that's a good strange
