Graphics GTX 770 Question

My within 2 days from now build

----
As you can see I'm leaning towards the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 4GB.
(Want higher than 2GB for future proofing)

However! I heard that the MSI GTX 770 2GB Twin Frozr went well with the MSI GD65 (performance not looks [don't care to much for looks, not a windowed case]) Like the motherboard was able to OC it more or increase its performance something like that --This may be entirely wrong.

I don't know much about Radeon products, but if you think it would be better I would be more than willing to look into it. Though I heard GTX has a good physic processor or something along that line.

I would also be fully open (and thankful) to suggestions on all parts of the build (I may want to hook up another graphic card in a few years so I went for a 750W PSU)

I want this to be able to play graphically intense games maxed 60+fps at 1080 for a bit.

Do not want 2GB.

Max price range for graphic card is around $450 - wouldn't mind a little over.
<This is my first build>

Edit: I will be buying a SSD around November.

  1. Unless you plan on upgrading to a multi-monitor setup or higher res monitor in the future a 4gb card is over kill for 1080p gaming, unless of cause you play skyrim with a ton of mods, that's about the only game i can think of where you would need so much vram.
  2. it depends really less on the vram unless you want surround sound or multi monitor
    you should be fine with a 2gb gtx 770
  3. Best answer

    But consoles have a lot of ram at their disposal.
    It's a concern for me too, because although 2 gb ram is plenty now, what about one or two years down the line?
    We don't know how developers are going to use ram, considering they have a lot to play with.
    I think it's a safe bet to get a 4 gb card over a 2 gb.

    Exactly - this is what I'm afraid of. A few years ago 1.5 was plenty more than you ever needed.
  5. 1.5gb if vram today is still more then enough for 1080p gaming.
  6. consoles have vram because they are built for huge resolutions and about 40inch tvs or so
    i have a gtx 650 ti 1gb and it runs metro last light and bioshock infinte on Ultra at 1680x1050 (30fps min, avg 45)
