Summary: Fast, stable and numbers of fan. Price is a bit expensive. Great overall GPU. Runs most games at Highest settings excluding some AA settings. For example, when playing tomb raider, with TressFX and SSAAx4 on, the FPS does drop to around 40-45. Thats only during moments where alot needs to be rendered though.
Summary: I was originally looking for a good r9 290 but it was a bad time cz those crazy mining craps sky rocket the price, so i got this instead, not as powerful as 290 but way cooler, not bad alternative.
Summary: My MSI 7950 died and I was posed with a very valid argument as to get either a 280x or the GTX770. Both are currently at similar price points and are both comparable in terms of performance. However the sheer build quality and design of this excellent card has enabled me to massively overclock this card it is now running at around 100fps on ultra, BF4, only a few frames behind the titan and 780. That is a remarkable feat for the price these are currently going for.

Summary: I will quote my son's review, for whom this card was a nice present "Overclocked this is on par with an r9 290 stock. It's the same chip as with the more expensive enthusiast gtx 680 and has higher bandwith (7ghz gddr stock) and slightly better performance. Considering I've upgraded from a HD 4870 - r7 260/gtx 650le equivalent, it's a huge step up. This is the way to go if you have a use for the extra cuda cores and bandwith in rendering or editing.
Summary: Best video card I've ever had. Wow! Smashes everything I've thrown at it on max settings. I won't post any benchmarks because you can find that all online. People cautioned about the size of the card. YES it is huge, but if you're getting this card then most likely you have a gaming PC which means your case should be big enough anyway. That's just my two cents, I could be totally wrong.
unreliable card awful customer support from gigabyte.

Summary: For about a month and a half it worked decently until it inexplicably fails, directly after the sellers return policy ended so by no means the seller's fault. Once the product failed rendering my pc unable to boot no matter the scenario in which it was installed but the pc would boot just fine as soon as it was removed.
Summary: I did a lot of research when buying my GTX 770, and finally ended up with two options, the Gigabyte and the Asus GTX 770. Most reviews and benchmarks rated them very similarly, with most differences being game-specific. In the end, the Gigabyte's cooling system was what convinced me to buy this one over the Asus. I've used it with several graphic-intensive games, such as Titanfall and I gotta say it's a beast.
Summary: I built a new gaming system in February and after contemplating a lot with regards to which card to buy I settled on this one. So far I have clocked 400 hours on ARMA 3, 300 hours on DAYZ SA, Metro last night etc. running all these games on ULTRA settings and not a single hitch, the card has performed as good as gold unlike some of the games developers have.
Summary: Pros: - Card is Powerful - Can handle just about anything you throw at it on a single-monitor setup - Runs incredibly quiet for how powerful it is. This was important for me as I used this card in an audio/video editing and gaming machine. - Runs very cool, which is probably why it stays quiet. Cons: The only bad thing I can say is that it cannot handle Dual Monitors without lag in Windows 7 64-bit SP 1.
