Gaming pc build, one card is a lot less with 4 games.

I play PS2 out the ass but want the best bang for buck. I have heard AMD cards getting better support for drivers now a days and that the 7970 is better than the 770? Overclocked of course, not sure.

Would love some info and feedback

At stock clocks both the cards are equal but an OCed 7970 will beat an OCed 770 (though only slightly) because the 7970 has more headroom for overclock and scales much better.
But an important thing to consider is that the 770 is almost 50$ cheaper than a 7970.

How much of a difference is the 2G vs 3G vs a 4G? the memory stuff on the GPU

It depends upon the resolution at which you are gaming. If you are gaming at 1080p then anything above 2 GB is an overkill. But if you game at 1440p then 3 GB is the way to go. And currently 4 Gb is only necessary if game with multi-monitors For eg 5760*1080 resolution

Go with GTX 770, at stock it beats the 7970 Ghz edition. and as for the ram, 2Gb is perfect for 1080p monitor. 3 GB is also good but i dont think there will be any 770 cards with 3GB [unless your buying 7970] 4 GB is useless in 1080p. even at 1440p there is always more than 1Gb ram unused.

It depends on your games, Heavily modded Skyrim on my pc runs min 2.5gb and and often tends to reach 3.5gb of Vram at 1920x1080 resolution. However, this is the only game to go over 2gb of vram on my computer.

Which is better for rendering? I play games, and do hobby rendering.
