Default Re: 2gb or 4gb gtx 770?

XDanger, I apologize. I forgot you are using a CRT. JCrox, let me explain. In may, I did buy a gtx 770 back in may. What happened was that the gtx 770 I bought (the MSI gaming) wouldn't post with my system at the time (the ivb cpu and mb my bro has). Sold it to a friend since I couldn't use it. Found out the card worked and it was a mb issue with pci-e compatibility. In Nov, I bought the zotac gtx 770 amp because it was on a black friday sale and it did work with my ivb and haswell setups. The thread I created for which gtx 770 to buy was when the gtx 770's were 1st announced back in late spring early summer 2013 when they 1st came out, not in nov 2013. I may have edited or added to the thread in nov. though. and if you are keeping track, I traded off my zotac gtx 770 for my two gtx 760's recently that I bought after the msi gtx 770 didn't work back in the summer. BTW, did a mb flash to fix the pci-e compatibility before buying anything else. Had to go with intel hd 4000 graphics for a couple of weeks before buying the gtx 760's back in the summer.
