    Palit GTX 770 OC (not Jetstream)?

    Does anyone have any first-hand experience with this card? Palit's RMA service isn't particularly good, but I'd be buying it from Amazon, which supposedly has excellent customer service regardless of brand. It's about 15-25 quid cheaper than Gigabyte/MSI/ASUS, and way cheaper than EVGA. Hexus did a review of this thing and its rather positive. It actually appears to be quieter and cooler than Windforce, based on Hexus tests. On the other hand, I couldn't find any other reviews of the non-Jetstream version and it seems to be rather unpopular compared to its competitors. Is there anything wrong with it?

    Why don't you go for the tested and widely approved JetStream? When buying a relatively expensive thing like performance class graphics card, more is always less in the long term.

    You could go for the MSI GTX 770 TF which is currently on a sort of sale on Aria.co.uk for £228 so £9 more expensive (might be postage costs). I would bear in mind that with Amazon you may not get the free version of Watch Dogs which you would get buying from Aria and other sites although I'm not 100% sure about that. One reviewer on Amazon says they didn't get the free game so I may be correct.
