GTX 970 vs gtx 770 4gb classified

Hello all!

 

I am finalizing a build and wanted some input. I am apparently super slow to the game and I didn't know the 9 series was out...............

 

 

I was going to buy a GTX 770 4gb classified card for my build but was curious if the 970 was actually a better card. I know better power consumption and cooling with the 970( I would most likely get the ASUS Strix)

I can find a ton of gtx 770, 780 vs 970 specs and videos but nothing with the classified edition.

 

I put the entire build in the link below.  I play high graphic games casually( I mainly do small indie games and minecraft) but also do a ton of music production work which this computer is mainly used for.

 

any thoughts?

This is why you should not get an FX CPU for ANY scenario other than rendering on a budget http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/286142-fx-8350-r9-290-psu-requirements/?p=3892901 http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/266481-an-issue-with-people-bashing-the-fx-cpus/?p=3620861

GTX 970 beats even the 780.

The blood on to your heart start pumping faster when you notice me.


But is ok.

The 970 is actually a lot faster, like 20–25% faster.

 

You can find deals on 2 GB GTX 770's for $250 or so now, but most of the 4 GB 770's are nearly as expensive as a 970. You also get an R9 290 (also 4 GB) for just under $300, which isn't an bad option either.

970 will crush the 770 like an elephant crushes a coconut.

Edit: that is if elephants would actually do that, but you get the point.

Edit 2: Your build is really weird price-wise. overpriced RAM, a liquid cooler on a non overclockable CPU, and a platinum rated PSU, it's all way overkill for what you can do with it.

The 970 is a much better deal. To be honest with the 970 being priced so well, The 770 should now be under $250 to be worth the buy. The 770 is a great card and I would love to have it, But the 970 is a leap ahead. So it is a mistake for Nvidia to leave any 770 priced so close to the 970. I myself was hoping to see price drops on the 700 series cards. But if the prices keep high with the 900 series out I do not see them coming off the shelves anytime soon. I am thinking very hard about getting a 970. But for the time I have to stay with the R9 270.

I don't think the dust has completely settled from the GTX 900 launch. Some 770s are around $250, or even less after rebates. The 4 GB version is a fairer comparison to the 970, though, and those are still priced stupidly.
