Excerpt: AMD's Radeon HD 7700 series hasn't been a series that we've welcomed with open arms. Priced highly against the Radeon HD 6800 series which continued to flood the market and performance that sat behind it meant that the HD 7700 series just never got us all that excited from a value for money point of view and that's a big deal.
Excerpt: We've found ourselves a little underwhelmed with what's been going on with the new HD 7700 series. It's not so much the performance of the card, but more the price as we see the HD 7770 line up with the HD 6800 series which comes out ahead.
Conclusion: MSI's Radeon HD 7770 OC represents a slight overclock on the reference card. Fitted with an excellent cooler and able to provide decent numbers under optimum conditions, we still reckon that better value can be found elsewhere.
