Re: 2gb or 4gb gtx 770?
XDanger, I am guessing your from the UK based on your pricing. This site i am showing you is a uk based gaming site I visit every day. They are showing pics of the r9 290x (I know you are looking for the non-x, just giving you a taste of things to come) with non-reference coolers. I get your message, the price premium on non-reference will keep reference cooled cards down in price. Just make sure you get a card that has a moddable warranty on it meaning you can add the 3rd party cooler and not void the warranty. Some brands do allow that. Not sure which ones do on the amd or nviida front. Two things I can't do (not by talent, but by choice) is mod my hardware for better efficency and overclocking. The only way I would overclock would be with intel cpu's where I would buy a overclocking performance warranty sold by intel through retailers that allows overclocking damage to be warrantied by intel.
here's the site:
