Upgrade to gtx770 4gb from hd7870 2gb. How much perf increase?

So the gtx770 is out and im seriously debating on grabbing a 4gb version. My questions to you guys are:

1) How much of a bump does the 770 4gb give vs a hd7870.
2) Is the performance bump is worth the cost.

Currently the hd7870 is powering my games at 1440p. It's definitely not doing super high end stuff but I can usually get 30+ frames after some minor tweaks.

Also, are there cards other than the 770 that i should consider? I dont want to spend more than $500 cad.

Finally, ati's ccc and photoshop hate each other and tend to kill my escape key. Has anyone heard of the same problem with nvidia and photoshop?

thanks!

    Nope, nvidia is what you want for photoshop and video editiong and also expect a bucketload of performance enhancements from the 7870

    About 40%-50% improvement, particularly since you'll probably get a nice factory overclocked GTX 770. You also won't have to jones on your PhysX games.
