Hi I'll be running 2 1920x1200 monitors, and I am wondering if a 2gb GTX 770 will be sufficient. I was told 4gb was preferable but just wanted to make sure before I decide. This system won't be used for heavy gaming mostly photo/video editing. Thanks n advance!

Whoever told you 4GB is preferable was correct. The bigger the resolution, the more VRAM you're going to want!

You cant game on two monitors, so you'll only be running 1920x1080p in games. 2GB is more than adequate for this.

Then you really don't need the 4GB at all.

Even for dual 1920x1200 monitors?

No, because the Nvidia driver doesn't support gaming on 2 monitors, so you have 0 use for it.
