This card gets better frames per second over my brothers Gigabyte GTX 970 ...

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. I always play on the highest settings. No issues! My Windows experience is 7.9 out of 7.9 for both graphics tests. I can control the GPU fans with my Corsair Link software.
Summary: Received mine with a fan that had a failed bearing out of the box. Gigabyte refused to honor their warranty, claimed they "found no problems under multiple testing scenarios," then held onto my card and did not ship it back without explanation until my return period expired. Evidently the fan emitting a sound akin to a handful of gravel dumped into a garbage disposal is not a "problem.
Exactly what I was looking for: Powerful, silent, cool and cheap

Summary: I have a Core 2 Quad Q9300, 4GB of RAM, ASUS P53Q-Deluxe and GeForce 9600 GT rig which, about 7 years ago, was a beast. After this long period, I finally decided it was time to buy another rig that will, hopefully, last for about another 7 years or so. As I didn't have all the money to buy all the parts at once, I decided to first buy this Video Card and a new Power Supply because it could be an upgrade to my old rig while I save for the 4790k, MO-BO, Case, Cooling...
Summary: Before this I was running a GTX 660 (non-ti, paired with an intel stock-clocked 3570k). Indeed the GTX 770 was a fantastic upgrade. Playing BF4 with a mix of ultra/high settings and 1080p (v-synced) with a constant 60fps was my target. This card hits it right on the nail. Running BF4 completely maxed out however will still get you 60 fps but with constant drops to 40/50 when things are busy.
Summary: I went for the 4gb model over the 2 because it was only $50.00 more. It made no sense to me not to when all indications are that more dedicated VRAM will be a benefit in future game titles. Why buy a new one a year down the road when I could just buy another one of these and be all set.So far I am playing most titles on Ultra to Very High settings. I can use all the Geforce Experience options like Shadow Play etc.
