EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC with ACX Cooling Review

Alien vs. Predator
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance


Alien vs. Predator

The Alien vs. Predator benchmark makes use of the advanced Tessellation, screen space ambient occlusion, and high-quality shadow features available with DirectX 11. In addition to enabling all of the aforementioned DirectX 11-related features offered by this benchmark, we also switched on 4X anti-aliasing along with 16X anisotropic filtering to more heavily tax the graphics cards being tested.

The Radeon HD 7970 GHz Editions' edge in memory bandwidth give it an advantage over the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC w/ ACX in the AvP benchmark. One again though, the EVGA card's higher clocks allow it outperform the reference GeForce GTX 770.

Goodness it'd be nice to have $400 in the budget for a graphics card. Someday...Someday...

I've been saving up money for a new video card for a while now... I have $50 left to save up to get this card. I had already picked it out as my target before this article came out. It shouldn't be too long before it'll be mine!

(Replacing a GTX 285 which gets flakey and locks up my computer from time to time)

Good luck with the 770. As far as the 285 goes you prob need to turn the fan on to 100%. Buddy of mine has an EVGA 285 and it kept overheating on him playing games like BF3 then figured out it was just a heat issue. When it hits over 80C it just would died a horrible death but figured out if he cranked the fan to 100% and drowned out the noise he was good heh

It has a good warranty and the performance is pretty good too.

Love to have a pair of them for a little SLI goodness,...........Smile

My friend just got a pair of those for a build and he loves them. Running a number of games at above 80 fps and crisis 3 at around 60 with dips down to 50 on max settings.

The 700 series is good but now im curious what the AMD 9000 series is gonna be like. Finally caught up on stuff from the past month or so and saw the 9000 series might be released in October I think it said.

Hasn't it been just like this for years of PC gaming? There is always something newer, better around the corner to whet our appitites for performance.

It's an evil plot to get all of our disposable income. (something I have less and less of as time goes by)

Lol Neil, you would be correct except its the whole PC market :P

I just wanna see if AMD goes for the best card period or best value card. Considering I have no desire to run Crysis 3 on ultra maxed out settings (not saying I wouldn't enjoy it if I had the system to do it) I look for cards that will run my games to where they looks good to me which is atleast 1080p.

I just bought a pair of EVGA GTX-680s from a friend of mine. He charged me $380.00 each for them, but also threw in a 240GB SSD too.

They are each in a i7-2600K system and both systems work as well as I would want. I'm set for a while.

I did put them together in just one of the PCs for a few days,......then I ran a few benches. It was stellar, but I'd rather have two high performing systems than one mega-fast box.

That is pretty good deal man. $380 is a good deal for one card but throwing in an SSD is icing on the cake. I like the 7850 I got currently, it runs everything I play at high settings. Really the only thing holding back my PC is the first gen i7 revision C0 I have currently. Still does well but lag is an issue sometimes when it come to CPU intensive programs. Reliability has been great though since it was bought in 09. I almost traded up for a 2600k but I didn't want to buy a new mobo.

It's crazy to buy a TITAN when you can overclock the 780. It'll have similar performance as the TITAN but at a way lower price.

Nvidia has really been kicking up the competition in the GPU market. Best part is the consumers are getting more bang for their buck by AMD and Nvidia. It finally seems they are making new strides in technology by both companies.
