    I have already returned 1 AMD RADEON ATI GRAPHICS cards to my shop and my 2nd ATI card that i got from them is in the proccess of being returned, i had the r9 280x ASUS which artifacted like crazy, and had just recently got the r9 290 GIGABYTE WINDFORCE yesterday, which is giving me black screens, freezing my computer and crashing it. Im fed up with AMD and their trash coz i know its not the shops fault as i have done some research and heaps of other people over the internet have the exact same problems as i do with the exact same cards. So now im just wondering how reliable is the gtx 770 EVGA 4gb version, is it as screwed as the new R9 series?

    I wouldn't be so quick to blame AMD. Ive set up a few and not one issue. But the GTX770 are a great card also. Might be your board. Fill your specs out completely. OS? Memory?

    My friend have Zotac's GTX770. Terrible card. Back. Card is great, drivers is... no comment.

    Don't blame AMD. Blame Gigabyte. Everything I had from Gigabyte ended in trash. Friends have same problems with Gigabyte.

    Return this s..t to store and pick Sapphire, XFX, MSI or ASUS.

    Im not ready to get another ati, i blame AMD because not only gigabyte or asus has the problems EVERY SINGLE CARD does... if you search up 280x artifacting and r9 290 black screens YOU WOULD KNOW WHAT I MEAN. So im fed up with AMD and cannot be borthered to deal with them anymore. nvidia is my next choice.

    my specs are as follows.
    ASROCK 980DE3/U3S3 Motherboard.
    AMD 1100t 3.3ghz 6cores
    16gb RAM
    windows 7 64bit
    CORSAIR 850HX series power supply

    EDIT: surely my powrsupply is more than enough for a 290 and a 280x.. i previously had a 7870 sadly i sold it which i shouldn't of coz it worked PERFECTLY.

    I don't blame gigabyte at all, my 7870 was a gigabyte and it worked perfectly... NO PROBLEMS WHAT SO EVER. I blame amd for releasing faulty cards out into the market and pissing offf people with it.
    EDIT: im thinking about the EVGA 770 4gb version

    I had 10 nvidia cards and 4 radeons. It's not an AMD fault. No GPU chip producer but PCB producer - Gigabyte etc.

    I always had problems with nvidia and amd cards if they are Gigabyte. Had Palit GTX460, good card except drivers.

    I say one more time: It's not an AMD fault. It's Gigabyte fault. If you buy GTX, prepare for problems with drivers like BSODs, artifacts, freezes. If you buy normal Radeon, prepare for good card without any driver problems. Friend who have GTX770 from Zotac now going to sell it and buy R9 290 from Sapphire. By the way, sorry but [98]8 in your nick is your birth year? If yes, I don't have any more questions.

    lol, no 98 jus random number im born in 1994. 20 years old now. You should tell your friend to do some more research before he buys any r9 series cards. If you look on the amd forums about r9 290 having balck screens. just check out the threads on their forums, the amount of views and replies it has. its not just the AMD forums other forums as well.. the 280x is just the same.

    Don't worry, we know what we're doing. I'm going to buy R9 270X as well.
    I just leave my opinion here. Good luck.

    what so pass experiences you had really bad geforce cards? and gigabyte was mainly the cause? soooooo if i were to get a sapphire tri-x 290....
    Just keep in mind apparently the rev 1.0 batch of r9 290 cards hae a high chance of having the screwed up problems im having..


    EDIT: looking at my specs they're fine right? its all the cards fault that everythings not working?

    The EVGA 770 is a solid choice. Get the 2GB, there isn't any benefit to the 4GB.
    EVGA have a good reputation for reliability.


    My 770 is very nice, runs any 1080P game at ultra.

    I just had a look on the geforce forums, and the 770 is too plagued with black screens. Apparently with dual monitor setups only though. Havent heard anything about single setups.

    Your specs is good, look at mine. I tested that GTX770 in my PC. Monster, 120fps in BF3 1920x1080, Ultra, 64 players.

    I had same experiences with nvidia cards, but only with Gigabyte and two Palit. My story, if i remember right:

    HIS GF2 MX400 - Still works
    Palit GF4 MX440 64MB - Still works
    MSI 6600GT - Dead, burned (but it's my fault)
    Palit 7300GT - Dead while playing Need for Speed: Underground
    Gainward 8400GS - Dead (don't remember how)
    Gigabyte 8600GTS - Dead
    PNY 8800GTS - Dead (But it's 8800 fault)
    Gigabyte 9600GT - Dead
    Gigabyte GTX260 - Dead
    Palit GTX460 Sonic - Still works, sell

    ATi Rage Pro 8MB - Still works
    Sapphire X800 XL - Still works and kicks ass in Doom 3
    Gigabyte HD3650 - Dead. I forgot about it, so I had 5 radeon cards after all.
    ATi HD4850 - Still works, kicks ass in League of Legends, Unreal Tournament's etc.
    Sapphire HD7770 - I need money and sold it. Quiet, low power card with excellent peformance (comaprable to GTX460). Still works and have 1 year of warranty.

    oh snap i can see why you hate gigabyte. Holy crap, yeah i was thinking of EVGA for the 770 anyway, what brand did u say the 770 was? the one u tested? and 120 fpss!!! i doubt i will get that with my AMD 1100t.. specially without mantle either.

    EDIT: yeh i've had really bad experiences with AMD so far in the past 2 weeks.. i don't think im ready to be traumatized again with another dfective r9 290.

    This Zotac, 2GB if i remember good. Quiet and low temps but still drivers and bsods... But I'm using 2 monitors.

    By the way, I had 3 motherboards from Gigabyte. All dead... no big suprise for me.

    sigh..... not sure if i wanna risk it. At this point i might as well just go switch to shitty console gaming.. starting to get sick of this computer stuff.

    Hoping the evga is good enough... if i get it and its defective i iwould have to have the wurse luck on this planet.

    EDIT: 2 defective cards in 2 weeks.. returned to my computer shop... a 3rd one is just gonna look very stupid.
    but if its a driver issue like you said, i can wait for drivers to fix it..

    wow all the gigabyte cards I've had from Nvidia have been just fine.

    2X 460 768mb (reference and overclock editions)
    1X 570 (reference)
    1X 580 (Super Overclock)

    Although I've recently sold these in the last month, they all worked fine....

    770 is a solid choice, expect it to perform around the 280x/7970 level. 770s also overclock like beasts. I'd choose Gigabyte or EVGA. Although after your issues I can understand your frustration (I'd never buy a Volkswagen group car again for example). So EVGA might be the best choice from your point of view.

    if the evga has problems. IM GONNA CRY!! literally.... I've asked many people and my computer hardware is compatible. So it cant be my other hardware.

    CONSOLE gaming is my last last last solution, i hate console online gaming with a passion... but if it comes to that i might as well just quit gaming in general.

    I have the Gigabyte Geforce GTX770 Windforce 2GB and have had it for about a year now...been an AMAZING card. Can do a job of keeping semi quiet on most games that don't fully load it..and I don't need 100% to keep it at decent temps. It goes up to 1228 core. Drivers have been solid. Have no need to OC it at all for smooth 1080p gaming. Sorry about your AMD card...that should've been a beast.

    I heard that EVGA has best support possible, so if you want, then go for that EVGA GTX770. Long warranty, great support - if your card die after GTX8xx release, you will receive GTX870 for free.

    My English may be terrible right now because it's actually 5AM on my country. So I'm going to sleep, good night everyone and good luck author ;)

    Unless it is somehow failing, which can happen. I know plenty of people with AMD cards that don't have the issues you describe. That's not saying it's not true though.

    I've always liked Evga, their support is great and they are pretty much the top tier vendor for Nvidia.
