I am thinking of getting a 770, however, I am unsure which brand to go for. I've included the rough pricing of each card offered to me by several vendors. The price is only an estimate as I've converted it into USD for easier comparison (since it'll be hard for you guys to judge the price in my currency)

I'd appreciate it if anyone can recommend me one of these cards or if you think that they're really not that bang for buck, perhaps suggest an alternative card?

Note though that I've noticed several suspiciously low priced cards. (Particularly true with the MSI ones, which are called PCI express under the header in the price list I was given) I'll TRY to find more info on these cards and link them, though that might take a while.

Check prices of the 280x series, might be lower where you live (similar performance to the GTX 770).

From that list I'd probably go with the 770 Lightning, assuming it's THIS one.

uhh, are you sure its not just your supplier that is selling the MSI cards for cheaper then the other brands possibly based on how he gets his stock.

So right off the bat you can safely ignore the 4GB variants because the extra VRAM will not give you higher FPS, even for 1440p (speaking generally.)

MSI is a reputed brand in GPUs so I would not be worried. There are various reviews online for you to sift through.

Here's a sample comparison I've found between the Zotac, EVGA ACX and the MSI lightning http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/graphics/display/geforce-gtx-770-evga-inno3d-msi_9.html#sect0

a second review by comparing GB, EVGA and MSI. http://www.anandtech.com/show/7392/the-geforce-gtx-770-roundup-evga-gigabyte-and-msi-compared

All in all, you won't see noticeable performance difference, it's the thermal/acoustic aspects as well as customer service you're choosing between different brands. At these prices I would recommend the MSI N770.
