Windows 7: Lookin to build myself a nice machine for $1500 ADVICE PLEASE

Is there a big difference between different brands of the same video cards (besides price)? I guess for an extra $50 or so it would be worth getting the 770 instead of the 760

well different companies offer different overclocked varients and different coolers.

the one I bought was an msi afterburner varient, it came with a reference cooler (thats probably not as efficient as say a twin fan asus version) but it was 60 cheaper than a card with the same spec but aftermarket cooler... I could spend that money on something else and have even better performance i.e more ram lol
