Device manager showing up the wrong card.

I have gtx 770 but my device manager lists it as a gtx 660. How did this happen? I'm trying to update my GPU since I reinstalled it. Now this happened. What should I do?

I would suggest uninstalling the current display driver and all of it's components completely and then using the "Nvidia Driver auto detection" tool to download the correct driver matching to your card.

NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Automatically Detect NVIDIA Products

( you should use Internet explorer for the auto detection to work )

If the tool also detects 660, i would try to get the card replaced ( if it is under warranty).
