Well the Lighning is obviously superior

It does not have better bang for the buck" .... at least at the time of the review

The MSI GTX 770 Lightning comes overclocked out of the box, with the GPU at 1150 MHz and memory at 1753 MHz. The card includes many overclocker-friendly features, like software voltage control, voltage measurement points, a dual BIOS for LN2 support, the MSI GPU Reactor, and a large cooling solution.....MSI's card uses a huge heatsink that extends far beyond the card's top edge. Make sure it fits into your case before purchasing the card. It is 14 cm high and 29 cm long....

MSI has installed some additional MOSFETs on the back of card to spread around the heat generated by the VRM circuitry. These components are cooled by this metal backplate that is installed on the back of the card; it also helps protect against damage while handling the card.....You will find MSI's GPU reactor on the back of the card. It uses an additional PCB to provide extra voltage filtering to the GPU. It has also been placed there to be as close as possible to the GPU, which maximizes its effect.......The card uses a CHiL 8318 for voltage control. It offers extensive software voltage control and comes with many monitoring features.


With the beefed up PCB and VRMS, it does get higher overclocks

I'm leaning towards the 4gig vram one if only for a bit of future-proofing... is that like totally off-base?
