    ideally looking for some feedback of people that are or have used these cards. Is it 3 or 4 year future proof?

    I am using the 2GB version of the GTX770 which was fairly cheap and so far does a really good job in replacing my old 260 card. My powersupply is 650W as 600W is required I believe.

    What you need to look for on the PSU is the +12volt rail. It should have a minimum of 30 amps. As that is dedicated to the gCard. My PSU is a Coolermaster Thunder 700w with a 55amp running off the +12volt rail.
    Here's a link to mine and some way down the page is a picture of what I'm talking about;
