GTX 670 4gb or GTX 680 2gb?

Hey all,

Upgrading my rig and I need some opinions :>

The 670 4gb and 680 2gb are about the same price it seems so I need to know which to get. I have a couple criteria to follow:

1. I use two monitors at 1080p, but only game on one monitor. The second monitor is used for stuff like skype, facebook, stuff like that.

2. I need futureproof for at least a couple years.

If using two monitors, but not for rendering a game on both monitors, should I get the 4gb vram, or is the more vram really only useful if you render graphics across multiple monitors?

Also I was thinking about the 670 vs 680 both 2gb versions. Would a EVGA GTX 670 FTW @ 2gb vram be a better choice than the 680?

Anyway any help would be great :) 

EDIT: forgot to mention I will be playing games like Far Cry 3, Star Citizen/Squadron 42, Battlefield 4, Skyrim with lots of mods and stuff, you know, games that take a great comp to run with good frames :) 

Best solution

the extra 2gb are useless! get the gtx 670 2gb and save some money! gtx 670 is only 5-8% weaker than the gtx 680! Also hd7970 ghz edition is a great choice too!

Hmm what do you mean? They both use the same chip, my research tells me.
