Default eVGA GTX 770 SC - Amazing Card!

I entered into Phase I of my upgrade (getting back into gaming). Building a brand new PC (down to 3 different versions now, if anyone is willing to help me choose I will post the spec's here). To buy myself time, I threw this card into the PC still listed in my sig... even though I know I am holding this card back big time I was blow away already by the performance! I was able to crush Tomb Raider on full settings with TressFX @ 1920x1200 with an average FPS of 49.75. This card is a great over clocker too!

Now, I will say, I did not anticipate how much heat these things can produce, but then again my dated PC may be pushed to its very limit trying to run this card All in all I was surprised how well this beast performed in my current setup and I can't wait to throw it in a PCIe 3.0 PC and SLI the card with another 770!

SLI would limit you to 2gb, sell it and get the new thing after the 780ti instead

Are you saying SLi would limit me to 2GB VRAM per card? I am not even sure I would need to go SLi, but I have never tried it before and it was certainly something I was possibly looking to do with a new system.

Unless they changed the rules you would be limited to 2gb with multiple 2gb cards, if so I would suggest selling the 770 when you feel like getting more power sooner rather than later and never bothering with 770 2gb sli, it wouldn't be worthwhile since you'll have UHD capable GPU's but with a restricted buffer.
