MSI GTX 770 Gaming

Our Final Thoughts

MSI always tends to impress with unique custom PCBs but normally these are all built for overclocking and normally have features which many average joes simply will never touch or even understand. It is a definite breath of fresh air to see the gaming line from MSI as these parts are targeted at a more realistic user base who will actually use the cards for gaming and normal computing rather than test bench and record breaking.

With that said it is nice to see some of the over engineering make its way from the high end overclocking models to the gaming lineup to ensure you not only have a nice gaming card but something that is truly capable of miles above that.

Afterburner has been a staple of many overclockers even some who dont have MSI cards use it simply because it is a great program. This continues with even more capabilities and improvements including the predator gameplay recording app to add even more usability for gamers.

The new MSI Game app allows for gamers to get a nice little bump with a single click for even more performance without any tinkering in overclocking settings or and worries of issues which means more free performance from MSI quick and easy.

Overall, for 10 dollars more than a reference model with a very capable cooler, and a factory overclock averaging a gain of approximately 2FPS at 1080p HD resolutions at max settings, the MSI GTX 770 Gaming card is a very nice deal and a amazing value for any gamer looking to build a new high performance gaming rig or even looking for a graphics upgrade.
