Nice Card, but Died at the 2 year mark

Anonymous, Newegg
24 December 2015
  • Summary: -I was hoping it would last a little longer until the new Nvidia Pascal cards came out. It looks like I'll have to hunt for a different gpu in the mean time.
  • Pros: -Worked very well and gave good frames with any game I threw at it.
  • Cons: -Finally died after 25 months.. Out of the blue the card stopped sending a signal to my monitor and the fans started blowing full blast nonstop. After troubleshooting to no avail. I had to swap it out with my old 560 gtx until I can find a replacement.

Fast card/Failed in less than 2 years.

B F., Newegg
19 December 2015
  • Summary: All my previous video cards have lasted me between 4-5 years without issue. I turned on my computer today and have not been able to receive a signal from the monitor. I've had these kinds of issues with systems in the past and just figured it was a loose cable.
  • Pros: -Fast Card I used this card steadily for gaming and video/animation work. It was extremely fast for rendering in AE and other programs. I never had any issues running games at near max settings.
  • Cons: -Failed after less than 2 years. -Without warning, the card stopped sending a signal to the monitors. The card looks brand new after blowing some compressed air through the fans. There is no reason this card should have failed. Previous cards I've owned have lasted several years and usually don't...

Was fun while it lasted

Justin D., Newegg
5 September 2015
  • Summary: I guess I'll call to see if I can get it repaired, I will let you know how that process goes...
  • Pros: Was a beast of a GPU while it lasted. tore up anything I threw at it while staying around 75 celcius max!
  • Cons: Started getting a non responsive black screen, so apparently it was actually crashing the GPU completely. Turned the fans on amnual to get higher spin speeds and lowered the voltage a little to see if it would help. Everything was fine for about a month, then my GPU driver started crashing and re...

Awful piece of garbage

Anonymous, Newegg
1 April 2015
  • Summary: I've owned 3 cards of this model. First two were bought for a SLI system and worked fine for several months. Then the main GPU died (no video signal) and was replaced by vendor. The second card died in about 8 months after that - no signal from DVI.
  • Pros: 1) GTX 770 2) Great cooling system
  • Cons: Extremely unreliable

Best Graphics Card Ever

Anonymous, Newegg
15 February 2015
  • Summary: Great graphics card. Great price for the performance. Run it on 3 monitors everything at max settings. Love it.
  • Pros: I have had this card for just over a year and it runs great. It is fairly silent considering how many fans it has. It runs all my games on ultra, I run it every day to the max and I could not be more pleased. If you have a high budget, I would certainly consider choosing this for your build or ev...
  • Cons: Nothing that I've noticed so far. It is very big, but that doesn't really effect anything.

  • Summary: I got this card for my 2014 build. I was not too sure about Gigabyte. But now I can let everyone know how well this product works with my review. I have had this GTX 770 4Gb version for 7 months now. I use it every day. I play Titanfalls, Battlefield 4, and Rome 2.

Card died after 9 months- Gigabyte unable or unwilling to fix

Sean L., Newegg
5 October 2014
  • Summary: Just in case someone from Gigabyte sees this post: My RMA# is: RMA# USA-1481465 Windows 7 disables card with the following "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". Even after it was "repaired" by Gigabyte "technicians".
  • Pros: Was a great card - while it worked. Not sure if the 3 year warranty is a Pro. See below.
  • Cons: A three year warranty is great. However a 6 to 8 week turnaround time borders on the unacceptable. Furthermore, Gigabyte technicians appear incapable of diagnosing or even repairing hardware problems. No one contacted me to ask for my troubleshooting information. Repairs were not identified by te...

User Review

Susan M., Newegg
4 October 2014
  • Summary: Considering this was my first full build from scratch, I took a gamble on picking who to buy my 770 from, and I will say I made a mistake in choosing Gigabyte. I will be looking at EVGA, MSI or ASUS for my next purchase in the 900 series.
  • Pros: It runs games well
  • Cons: Main complain: One of the fan motors is dying, can't tell which. When the fans spin at a low RPM (idle) I get a CONSTANT clicking sound. The only way I've found to fix this is to manually increase the minimal fan speed. -It's heavy and sags more than other cards. -The extra width added by the Win...
