    Help me decide: 770 4GB or 780 ti

    Hey guys, I'm debating these two cards for my next upgrade. I'm not intreasted in AMD this time so please no 290/270 suggestions. So the 770 4GB is $400 and the 780 ti is $700. I'm leaning towards the 770 and going SLI in a couple months. The big reason for the upgrade is my 560 ti's are aging...

    Origin can be good for something I guess

    Best download speeds I've ever seen. Max Steam download I've got was 4.5MB/s, this was sustained 6 MB/s, mostly at 7 though. And yes, I did purchase SimCity but only because I got DeadSpace 3 along with it for free. Also, I purchased it from GreenManGaming and earned $10 credit. So I'm...
