These two 770's... what's the difference?

#1mrtywerPosted 9/3/2014 2:14:27 PM(edited)
I'm looking into buying a 770 today, and I'm liking the EVGA models. However, these two look identical, other than maybe the cooler? One says ACX, one doesn't specify - but the ACX cooler model is $5 cheaper. Any ideas?

I'm trying to compare the two models on EVGA's website, but it's proving more difficult than I thought. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Looks like the biggest difference between the two is a dual-bios switch on one model

Is it worth it if I don't plan on any kind of bios tinkering? I would think not. Otherwise they look identical to me.

They're identical. But if it says one has dual-bios and the other doesn't, take the dual bios model since its the same price. They both support G-sync.

Newegg doesn't mention the dual-bios, I had to get that off of the EVGA website. But, so be it! I'm so excited, it's gonna be great for my new 1080p monitor!
