Few things to consider - the Gigabyte and ASUS models will blow the warm air into your case, so if your case does not have good ventilation, you may want to consider the EVGA model, since it will exhaust the warm air out of your case. The EVGA model also has 4GB of VRAM.

The Gigabyte model is clocked the highest, and from the reviews I've seen on the 770, the Windforce system gives you a ton of thermal headroom, which means you'll be hitting higher boost speeds for longer. It performed much better than the ASUS model on the 770. So in raw performance, the Gigabyte model will probably be the best. However, I would suggest you pick up a 4GB model, even though most people will tell you that 2GB is enough.

but we are not talking about the 770 we are talking about the 760

ASUS - http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_760_Direct_Cu_II_OC/27.html

Gigabyte - http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Gigabyte/GeForce_GTX_760_WindForce_OC/27.html

According to these graphs, the Windforce is, on average, 5.5% better than the stock 760, while the ASUS card is on average 3% faster. And they literally overclock the same. The ASUS card has a better percentage increase in raw clock rate because it starts at a lower base clock, but they both achieve an FPS that's identical when overclocked to their limit.

Also, take a look at the clock profiles.

Gigabyte - http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Gigabyte/GeForce_GTX_760_WindForce_OC/31.html

The ASUS card has an average clock rate of 1141, while the Gigabyte card has an average clock rate of 1196, and the maximum clock rate achieve by gigabyte is 52 MHz more than the ASUS model... Sooo.

Also, the cooling solutions on the 770 are the same as on the 760, and the 760 is just a binned version of the 770. So the comparisons do have parallels. Yes, the Gigabyte model is a little louder, which is to be expected considering it has 3 fans instead of 2. So, I'm not really sure where you can conclusively say that the ASUS model is better... Certainly it is a good model, but it would seem to me that the Gigabyte model is, if only slightly, better.

the gigabyte is louder and bigger and of course obviously an overclocked card beats one that isnt overclocked thats an unfair comparison... Sooo.

i would also like to see where you are getting these average clock rate from and yes the 770 and 760 have the same cooling units but they are different gpus and run hotter than the others example the gtx 770 runs at 76 c idle while the 760 runs alot cooler at 68 c so again not a valid comparison also the asus 760 runs 7c cooler at idle but the gigabyte 760 does run 4 c cooler on load overclocked http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_760_Direct_Cu_II_OC/31.html http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Gigabyte/GeForce_GTX_760_WindForce_OC/31.html

The second links, halfway down the page are the clock profiles. It has the minimum, average, maximum, and median clock rates achieved by the cards.

False, EVGA ACX cooling is open cooling so it releases hot air inside the case and out the exhaust, so both ways.

gseyffert 1 Build 1 point 70 months ago

I'm pretty sure this is not the ACX system - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130937

It's the first link he posted. It's a standard blower cooling solution.

BC1096 1 point 70 months ago

Ah, my bad. I thought he was referring to ACX. My fault though, didnt check the link
