Hey Guys,

So Im considering purchasing a Gigabyte GTX 770 Windforce in the 2gb variant with a 1080p display. In the near future however, I am planning on buying at least a 2560x1080 res monitor ang getting a second card. Would the 2gb variant be enough memory in SLI to sustain resolutions equal to that, or most likely higher?

Thanks, appreciate all responses!

A 4gb frame buffer is more that enough for your setup and you will likely not even need that much...

At 1920 x 1080, Id do the 2GB models, at anything bigger I'd do 4 GB (memory doesn't "add" in SLIi)

If you want to run larger resolutions get the 4Gb card(s), its only $50 more. Adding another card in SLI does not increase the amount of usable vram. With 2 2Gb cards in SLI you will still only have 2Gb of usable vram.

VRAM doesn't add in SLI...

My apologies I mistakenly believed that VRAM would add in SLI... I would recommend getting the 4gb versions instead.
