I'm confused, Does anyone know what the real differences are between these two cards, besides the price?

 

I know EVGA usually sells versions of the cards  which are factory overclocked, is that all it is?

 

And is the price difference worth the performance?

 

The EVGA Geforce GTX 770 Classified 4gb is $509, vs $439 for the normal version.

 

I am going to buy one of these within the month to power my battlefield addiction, but not sure which one i should get.

I would just get the normal version and overclock it yourself,  the "Classified" version is the overclocked model, but it contains the same cooling system, but the overclock is pretty subtle for performance, and does not warrant an extra $70.

Actually, looking at the pictures on those pages, the standard model seems to have a better cooling system.

 

Here's the classified version...

14-130-936-Z03?$S300$

 

And here's the standard version...

14-130-945-Z03?$S300$

its not worth an extra $70 because the overclock is so low, you could probably push it further than the classified anyway

The "Classified" is even more of a rip-off than the usual 4GB version, that's the difference.

 

Save yourself 100$ and go for the 2GB GTX 770.

What does everyone think of the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 770 - AMP! Edition?

I know this is a slightly old review, but it highlights the point very well. http://www.pugetsyst...4GB-Memory-154/

 

Unless you are doing gaming over multiple monitors (and that's full dual or tri screen gaming, not gaming on one screen and having a second connected.

then DO NOT waste money on a 4GB card.

they're only advantage is on multi-monitor gaming.

 

Save the $'s and get an SSD or any other upgrades your looking at.

 

Of of course if your planning on multi-monitor gaming, then go right ahead 4GB will be great, but get the standard.

Even then you'd need at least two in SLI to drive those kind of resolutions at a playable framerate. A single 4GB GTX 770 doesn't make sense in any use case.
