Pricing, Availability and Final Thoughts
Coming in at $399.99 at the time of writing, the MSI GTX 770 2GB Twin Frozr OC falls in line with four other GTX 770 2GB video cards at the same price. From there we start to move up a little bit with the most expensive 2GB offering coming in at $449.99, which is the MSI GTX 770 2GB Lightning, the next video card that will be hitting our testbed.
It feels like if you've had a chance to look at our reviews on the MSI GTX 760 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC or MSI GTX 780 3GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC, you'll already have a fair idea of just what we think of these new Gaming series based Twin Frozr cards. The MSI GTX 770 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC simply feels the gap.
The Twin Frozr based cards from MSI have never disappointed us and as we go through new generations of the Twin Frozr cooler, and they only get better. We love the move that MSI has made to the new Gaming Series name. We've said it before and we'll say it again - it's nice to see the company have some unity between the motherboard and video card departments.
Comparing the three models against each other, it's really going to come down to price, when deciding which one to buy. If you can afford more than what a GTX 760 costs, look at the GTX 770. Similarly, if you can afford more again, you'll no doubt want to look at the GTX 780.
When it comes to comparing against the competition, it's tough. A lot of it will more than likely come down to brand loyalty and availability, as all the non-reference GTX 770s we've looked at perform extremely well. If you've been on the MSI video card bandwagon for a while now, you can know with confidence that if you're continuing the MSI video card legacy, you won't be disappointed with what's on offer from this solution here today.
