Re: My new MSI Gaming gtx 770
bummer, I had to sell the gtx 770. MSI and gigabyte use dual 8 pin pci-e power. The rest of the brands for gtx 770 use 6+8pin pci-e power. My power supply wasn't powerful enough for the msi gaming gtx 770. (650 watt 80 plus platinum antec). What happens is that without drivers in windows 8, the screen goes blank. With windows 7, you can get to desktop but if you try to install any nvidia driver, the screen goes blank even after a reboot. I thought it was a bad card and sold it for someone to RMA. Found out the card worked fine in his system and my motherboard is fine. (tested my mb with a gigabyte gtx 560 soc 1gb). The guy I sold it to had a corsair ax860i 860 watt 80 plus platinum. So, since I have to pay a collection agency for a $725 cdn cell bill from 2011 over the next 3 months, I am getting a PNY gtx 660 ti 2gb from newegg for $280 cdn ($329 and change with tax and shipping). Plus I get metro last light. Only requires 2 6pin pci-e and a 450 watt psu. Might get a second gtx 660 ti and sli them. Have to get a better psu 1st as it only has 2 6+2 pin pci-e connectors and the power draw would be too much.

Re: My new MSI Gaming gtx 770
actually found out it was my motherboard with the gtx 770 and not the power supply. I also couldn't get my brother's gtx 560 to work on my motherboard (see sig) either with the same symptoms. So, by chance, I set the motherboard to factory defaults.reset the pc, and then back to my settings and the gtx 560 worked fine. So, for some reason, gtx 700 series cards need this bios change on my motherboard for them to work until now. Fortunately, ASUS made a bios update for pci-e board compatibility about a week ago (late july 2013)and my gtx 760 (read my thread on gtx 760 coming soon) went in without a hitch meaning no fussing with the bios. Actually more happy with a gtx 760 since I can sli them for cheaper and better performance than a gtx 780.
