NVIDIA GTX 650 2GB GDDR5

Which of those would be a better graphics card?
I'm not looking for a better performance for any specific game, just kind of an overall comparison between the two for all types of games and tasks.
Would the 2GB have any notable differences from the 1GB?

The card would be a part of a build your own bundle at Walmart.com, so the links are to the two that I would choose from.

Thanks!

The GTX 650 is about as good as the 7750, meaning the 7770 is significantly better. The 2 GB is no advantage with these low-end graphics cards. By the time 1 GB becomes insufficient, these cards are too slow anyway.

Damn! I just noticed those. Like 2-3x higher then they should be.

7770 outperforms the Gtx 650 in many ways.

So go for 7770, that's what I would recommend :)

As much as I like Nvidia and highly recommend them, I'll concede to the 7770 winning here. Although the difference isn't the biggest of performance gaps. If it comes down to price and you just need to cut out money from your build, go with the GTX 650, It's not going to kill you to lose a few FPS.

1gb is already getting insufficient at 1080p. black ops 2 is the only game i can do 8x msaa, the rest like hitman, tomb raider, etc, msaa even at x2 gives fps drops

8xMSAA is utterly ridiculous with budget GPUs. The GPUs themselves can't keep up with that, so it doesn't matter if their memory can't either.
Even with high-end GPUs there are other options you should chase rather than 8xMSAA that offers practically no visible improvement over 4x.
