    Do you have a browser open? I noticed that mine will stay at 1100 even if I'm just running chrome, even if it is minimized. Mine jumps to 1205 as well, without any tweaking, and got it to 1280 stable with a little bit of tweaking. Haven't pushed it much farther than that, but I just run it at the regular SC speed anyhow.

    Hey guys, 1st post.

    I've read lots of literature, and am considering upgrading from my 2x5870's, for a 770. I game @ 1080p with my i7-920 is OC'd to 3.7GHz (which occasionally gives me low FPS in a few select BF3 maps).

    Would it be worth upgrading to a 770?
    I currently get a solid 60FPS in BF3 @ High settings (don't use Ultra anymore) with 2xMSAA. In all I paid a total of $280 for both 5870's, two years ago; they are still actually really good to me (especially since I game at 1080p), but I've never owned NVIDIA before, so I'm curious about touching the waters, and moving to a single card :dave:. However I am REALLY impressed with the new Catalyst 13.8 drivers that almost totally removes micro-stuttering, talk about a massive visual improvement when using crossfire: it's seriously a mind blowing difference after tolerating micro-stutter for the past 2yrs :3eyes:.

    EDIT: What exactly is lost (the disadvantage) when you SLI/Crossfire two cards? Is it just the RAM on the second card that goes to waste? And extra ram (say on a 4GB card vs 2GB) is only useful when buffering textures at mega-resolutions, &/or to multiple monitors -> how does that work? ...But the MHz of each card are not wasted, and thus combine to process data faster - correct?

    EDIT2: I removed my Sound Card, and just use AMD's audio drivers via HDMI though my [main] 5870. Is that going to negatively impact my gaming performance? I always thought Audio processing was kind of a joke - correct? ...Is the audio quality worse via this method? I have 5 Klipsch speakers, and a Polk subwoofer connected via a Denon 1911 A/V receiver (~$1,800 audio setup).

    Just recently got my GTX 770, have had it for about a week now and I'm more than impressed. I had two GTX 660Ti in SLI and honestly, the difference is very minimal which really surprised me. I'm enjoying the card very much :)

    Does anybody know yet how to get past the voltage limitations of the MSI TF Gaming or other 770s without the CHiL chip?
    I'm looking for (guides of) Afterburner/Precision hacks, BIOS mods, soldering mods, etc. Really can't find any on the net yet :(

    Overclocking this card has been just too easy up to now :D

    My GTX 480 just died and i ordered a an Asus GTX 770 DC2 oc 2gb coming in on monday I hope the dc2 cooler is good as Guru3d has not reviewed this particular model.I love the fact that it comes with a backplate as well.Looking at reviews of the gtx 770 it is about 50% faster than my old 480. just one note i don't know if it was a coincidence that my card died or the 320.18 drivers everyone was talking about...Cant wait to see how it performs!!!!!

    I received my card yesterday and i am loving it.Huge upgrade over my GTX480 and it runs very cool and i love the fact it has a back plate too very nice looking card.It boosts to 1150mhz and it does not reach max temp to throttle and ambient temp is 30c.I did a quick overclock to 1250mhz and 7500 ram but i have not tested it for stability yet just played a bit of Crysis 3 without any problems...

    I was wondering if someone could help me, as i stated abovei bought the gigabyte 4gb windforce card, and it refuses to overclock at all. It runs at 1241mhz when gaming, temps are around 75, il crank the fans, voltage, power %, and core speed up but its not stable. I cant even increase it by 20mhz. What voltage are you guys running? Mine runs at 1.2v but even when i increase the voltage it still stays at 1.2. What gives? I love this card its great i just want to be able to mess ariund with the oc a little

    Just a guess as i am new to the kepler series maybe Gigabyte already maxed out the oc potential of their card.As for the voltage it might be locked at bios level.Maybe that's why they released a revision 2 of the same card i guess you have revision 1.

    Well if you think about it the GTX770 is basically a GTX680, all that Nvidia has done to the 770 is overvolt it to 1.20v using a stronger power phase design,overclocked it to higher base + boost frequencies used 7000mhz memory instead of 6000mhz and introduced turbo boost 2...to match AMD 7970ghz edition performance a 2 year old (i think) gpu? i just wanted to add to this if my GTX480 had not died i would of waited a bit longer for an upgrade since the pc in my specs is the only one i have i had no option to choose something within my budget,i wanted a 780 but it was out of my price range..My plan was to wait a couple of months for AMD 9 series see how it performs and then upgrade..

    Mine only goes to 102% power boost with a temperature of 95c? Shouldn't I be able to set it to 110% power boost?

    Hey guys.

    I bought 2 MSI GTX 770 Lightnings in JULY to replace my ASUS GTX 590.
    These cards are animals

    Just one 770 Lightning has pretty much the same performance of the Dual GPU GTX 590

    In a few months i am gonna waterblock them :D

    One Question? What impact would it have if both of the BIOS on the 770's were different? Just curious.... My ones are the same

    I've been running my EVGA 770 GTX Classified 4GB for about three days now and I'm pretty happy with it. I upgraded from a 660 GTX SC and averaged a 66% (I did the math) fps increase in the games I benched. Can't wait for BF4 to see what this thing can really do.

    So I will be joining you guy's soon just ordered a MSI 770 lightning for my second rig that stays in the living room (it's a 2500k system). Will post impressions when I get it up and running (it's got to be better than the 6950 it replaces which is not bad card just a bit weak in DX11).
