Hey guys I am trying to wrap up building a Video Editing machine that I have ordered all the parts for except for the Video Card and it's down to these 2 for me...unless you can make a strong case for another card. There is only a 20 dollar difference between these cards so I am simply trying to figure out which one of these is better:

Option 1: EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked with ACX Cooler 4 GB GDDR5 256-Bit Dual-Link DVI-I/DVI-D HDMI DP SLI Ready Graphics Card 04G-P4-3774-KR

Option 2: Gigabyte GTX 770 GDDR5-4GB 2xDVI/HDMI/DP OC WINDFORCE 3X Graphics Card GV-N770OC-4GD

This is what the rest looks like:

Processor: i7-3770K Quad-Core Processor 3.5 GHz

Motherboard: ASUS sabertooth z77

RAM : Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800)

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Internal Desktop Hard Drive

SSD: Crucial M500 240GB SATA 2.5-Inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive



Thanks a lot!

Honestly there would be no difference, the EVGA has slightly higher core/boost clock speeds (1111MHz/1163MHz vs. 1046MHz/1085MHz) but the tiny difference would be miniscule.

 

I personally prefer EVGA as a brand overall, but thats just an opinion and some people prefer Gigabyte...

 

The Gigabyte card does have one more fan (no promises that it will run cooler because of this though)

 

 

 

On another note you may have wanted a z87 rather than the z77 mobo, the z87 natively supports 1600MHz RAM while z77 does not, its going to default to 1333MHz, just a heads up.

AFAIK the Z87 chipset is only for use with LGA 1150 (Haswell) processors.

Good catch, I did not notice that.
