Look here (760 SLI) and here (GTX 770 2GB). Individual reviews I know, but you can make a comparison yourself.

At what resolution? If you are gaming at 1080p on a single monitor one GTX 770 would do you just fine. I have a Gigabyte GTX 670 SLI setup, Winforce 2, and on a single 1080p display one GPU is good enough. I find that I only really need the SLI setup when I play games that support 5760x1080 Surround.

Here is a 760 2GB SlI compared to the 770 and 780 cards. Looks like the 760 SLi is faster than the 780 let alone the 770 :)

The 760 in SLI will be faster than both the 770 and 780 as long as the game supports SLI. Now, most modern games do, but there are still a fair few games that don't support it, especially older titles.

But performance has its price. Two 760's aren't expensive, but you'll need more PSU power and it'll cost more to run.

Yeah on this rig i am only gaming at 1080, so I am thinking of getting a gtx 760 4 GB, since I will still get the performance i need. but at a cheaper price.

I was just curious if there was a comparison chart of the 4GB 760 vs. the 4GB 770

REally no real reason, I assume the 2GB card could run all my monitors but I just want the 4GBG since the price isnt going to be that much more.

If you're expecting to keep the same GPU for a while then getting a 4GB card may be wise. Current generation games don't quite need 2GB yet, but in the near future it may change. It just really depends on how you want to use your GPU.

I hear the same argument every few generations when the VRAM amount starts going up, but not once outside of a dual card setup at high resolutions have I ever been limited by VRAM since by the time my card is limited by vram it is not powerful enough to play at settings with good fps that use up the vram anyway. (that may be slightly different for people who bought top of the line cards) At 1080p I highly doubt 2gb is going to become a serious bottleneck anytime soon for single cards. With that said a 770 4gb would make more sense than a 760 4gb. That's my opinion and if the price difference for 4gb over 2gb is small why not right?

If the price difference is small, then surely it's worth it. It's even more worth it if use can be made from the extra VRAM.
