    So I love the colour scheme and quality of MSI and currently @ scan the OC 760 is at £180 and the 770 is £232.

    I will be gaming at 1080p with single monitor to start, second will come later when I can afford. Is it worth paying the extra £50 over the overclocked 760 over the regular 770?

    I think if I needed more power the £50 would be worth it, but it's if it is really needed? Not sure if there will be any new cards released anytime soon (6months) but potentially could upgrade in a year.

    If you're playing games which can tap into the extra power, I'd say yes, definitely.

    Edit - By that I meant not just someone who plays LoL or TF2 etc, if you play more intensive games, then by all means I'd go for it for the sake of £50.

    What's the rest of your system specs?

    Gtx 770 is a pushed rebranded Gtx 680.. Maybe you could find a left over 680 at better price.
    My opinion Gtx 770 is a better investment

    Not sure how likely you are to find one that's cheap enough to warrant it over a 770, worth a hunt though!

    Take the 770, more cores will make it faster overall. for £50 it'll really last you a couple years
