    Hey,

    I am thinking of buying a EVGA GTX 770 ACX with 4GB. My question is what difference do the EVGA GTX 770 ACX 4GB Classified, FTW, and the Normal in games? Compensates buying a Classified or FTW? What difference will it make in the games?

    Thanks and sorry for my English! :p

    The only difference is a tiny overclock. They will all perform the same in games.

    The difference between them is the binning, in most cases FTW will overclock better than the normal edition and a classified will overclock the best,of course its all a draw of luck and buying a higher tier will just improve you chances a little.

    It's debatable if they really bin anything besides their classified cards. I've seen plenty of crappy FTW cars and standard cards that clock sky high.

    Only the Texture Fill Rate changes (and the Base Clock and Boost Clock), the 13.4GT/s (diference between Normal and Classified) make a difference?

    No idea,why would you want the 4gb version any way? 4gb is useless on a GK104 based gpu.

    Exactly. You would want to jump ship to the 780 or a 7950/7970 which has more bandwidth.... assuming you actually need 4GB of vRAM in the first place... IF you are at 1920x1080/1200, you do not. Now, 2560x1440/1600, that is in the grey area for sure. Multiple monitors you really would want 384bit bus and 3GB+ Vram. :toast:

    You had it right with this part...well, Luck of the draw is the right way to say it, but that is it.

    Buying a higher clocked card from the factory does not guarantee, in the least bit, higher clocks over reference.

    Hi why not try the Gainward Phantom, I am seriously thinking of getting one and like you I was going for the 4gb one but not after what I read on this thread, the reason I was advise to go for a 4gb card is that next generation games will pass the 2gb barrier, have a look at the Gainward.

    Until they get transparent of their binning process and specifically state these clock higher than the vanillas (and with what percentage), I'd say get the normal one.

    I got lucky with my Hydro-copper but screwed on a GTX580 Classified Ultra 3GB which quit @ 950MHz (without EV-bot)
    My standard GTX 680 does a fantastic 1215MHz all day and never makes a peep.
