Wow that is really something. Solid parts of coarse but the internal aesthetics really come together as a whole. Enjoy!

Hey there, thanks for compliment on my build. These are some high quality fans, I can say that. Very close to the Noctua's but half the price. They work great as well, moving plenty of air while staying almost silent. I'd recommend them over any other fan for the price [:

I would agree with you on both counts. It just came down to this card being cheaper when I bought it. 280$ after rebate, and purchased before the 980 ti was relased furthur lowering the 970 price.

Hey there. At 1440p they've almost identical benchmarks. By the time I am video editing there will actually be sli 980's or a single 980ti in here.

Nice build, I really like it. It makes me happy because I am about to set up my new build with this same card, and just happened to order 3 of the same cougar vortex fans. The orange is a bit different from the two but who cares, it's a nice touch.

There are many equal quality, less expensive parts I would choose for your build. ddr3-1600 ram, less expensive mobo, cpu coooler, case, smaller ssd with a 1 tb hard drive. I would do these so you could buy the R9 290 instead of 280x. After gaming with my 7970 on 1440p I can say you will want more if you want to max games out. Especially for a couple years down the line. The 290 is built for 1440p plus it's better for data crunching. Otherwise just go with a fast response time 27" 1080p monitor like i switched to. You wont have tearing in your graphics with this option because you don't have a 5+ millisecond response time so your game play will be way smoother. I went with this baby and it's a gem for 200$. the 280x/ 7970 is just perfect on that resolution. [:

the 290 is built like a rock, meant to handle super high temps and people overclocks. The only reason to get the 770 would be if you cant spend an extra 50$. This is why PC gamer just rated it a 95/100. The highest ever score, + an editor's choice award.

Well considering a GTX 660ti only runs 18 degrees cooler under full load, at half the performance, I'd say it makes up for it. Plus the 290's Hawaii architecture is built to run at that temp. With the power consumption, it draws the same watts as the Titan, and only 33 more watts than a GTX 770. http://www.techspot.com/review/736-amd-radeon-r9-290/page8.html

Hello there, you should seriously consider an R9 290. They just came out today. They're 400$ and beat the GTX 780 in many cases!

Definitely R9 290, the reviews and benchmarks are coming in and it's beating the GTX 780 in most games. Only 400$ and are relatively quite and cool.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "2GB or 4GB 770?"

  • 74 months ago

Hello, the real answer is neither. You want the 4gb AMD R9 290 which just came out today. It beats the gtx 780 in many games, and blows the 770 out of the water. To buy any other card right now unless you want nvidia 3d vision is just crazy.

Hello there, the AMD R9 290 came out today! it is 400 dollars but it performs close to the GTX 780, better in some games like Battlefield! 4GB and runs much cooler than the 290x which is 550$ but competes with the Titan. The extra money spent would be so worth it. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100362sr

An overclocked 8320 is all he will need for gaming for years to come, and tears through internet browsing or any other app you can throw at it.

Hey there, I would start by going with the FX-8320 with a cooler master 212 evo to cool it. You wouldn't regret it because the 8320 is an equal or better than the i5, and the stock cooler is loud and doesn't cool well while gaming. Then you can get an Extreme 4 motherboard. Other than that it looks great! One thing you could do tho would be to get a 7970 video card instead of the 780 and use that money for a Samsung Evo SSD, mechanical keyboard, and more cooling. This will give you the same performance (better with this SSD), quieter, better quality, and much cheaper. Plus you get three free games (:
