Summary: This is probably the card you want to get. Why? Because of the price to performance ratio. I have tried different cards (All EVGA GeForce). I have tried the EVGA GeForce 760 and the 780. My advice? Get the 770. It costs about $500 less than the 780 and while it doesn't perform quite as good, it's perfect for the price. It performs significantly better than the 760 too.
Summary: Plays Thief, which is a resource hog of epic proportions, on ultra settings, and it's a different game entirely with the graphics turned up. Thus far this card has performed beautifully with all games I've asked it to handle (various Assassin's Creed titles, ESO, Skyrim, Bioshock Infinite) and I am quite pleased with it. The fans aren't too loud for me, but then again, that sort of thing doesn't tend to bother me. They aren't whisper soft either, but no jet engines here.
Pros: This is a great card, it maxes everything I throw at it, 90+avg fps in bf4, plays metroLL on ultra super smooth, and bioshock infinite looks fantastic. Plus you get a dual bios which has some extra overclocking features preloaded into the second bios. The ACX cooler is fantastic, the two fans stay whisper quite even when the card is at running at full load and the temps never go above 70. If you are considering getting this over a 760, take the plunge it will be worth...
Cons: I was a little disappointed with my card as far as the overclocking goes. GPU boost 2.0 does a great job by itself, but I couldn't get it to go much further than 1.2ghz on the clock speed without crashing in games. I have a 1000w psu so power isn't an issue, not sure what's up. But this wasn't enough to take an egg, it is still factory overclocked and plays better than standard gtx770s.
Excerpt: This video card is currently the entry level card to the high-end stage(June, 2014). If you run at 1080p/1440p single monitor. Almost every online game is smooth above 60fps. If you run above that or playing games like BF4 using 100% or higher setting,this card will not do at all. However, price at here is not really that good compare to other online retailers, but picked up in store when it's in stock is totally worth it.
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Reliable Performance
Excellent quality and functioning card, with occasional jelly-like graphics

Summary: It works amazingly well, for the games I've used it with, on ultra high settings (but without uber-sampling) at a steady 60 fps. I've used it with farcry 3, the Witcher 2, Sins of a solar empire, and civilization V (the difference being smooth, quick gameplay for civ V). The graphics on some games have problems in certain areas, for an example, in farcry 3 there is one kind of bush that instead of moving slightly as you walk through it, it will aggressively wobble like a...
