Im getting a new computer soon and i was just wandering what would be the better option. GTX770 2GB 2-way SLI or GTX770 4GB. Im planning to use 3 monitors (1920x1080 each).

    I'd recommend get the 4GB version and not sli cause if u sli 2x2GB versions the actual vram does not gets doubled to 4GB.So get the 4GB version from reputed brands like asus,gigabyte,zotac,or evga.
  2. a single 770 does not have enough horsepower to use 4gbs of vram. a SLI setup would provide more horsepower to run a 2d surround set up.
    if you can't get a 4gb SLI set up then go for the 2gb.

    You said that a single 770 does not possess enough power to use 4GB.So why they offer you with more vram?
    Definitely for playing at high resolution.
    and if he have enough money to sli 770,then he should avoid sli configurations and have a GTX 780 3GB.

    give me a minute and i'll show proof that because they offer it doesn't mean it will use it. a 670 4gb actually performed worse than a 2gb. a 770 is not that much more than a 670 to make a difference.

    Therefore, we can conclude, if you are going to be getting a GeForce GTX 670, and only sticking to single-card, single display gaming, or even NV Surround, 2GB models are the better value.

  7. The 4gb version is better suited to SLI than the 2gb. the power from a pair of 770's can and will use 4gb, esp if you have a 2560x1440 monitor or triple monitor setup.

    a 770 is much better than a 670.Actually it performs a bit more than a GTX 680.

    The 4gb version is also better suited to SLI than the 2gb for similar reasons.



    i'll agree but given an either single 4gb or SLI 2gb the latter is better-

    i guess its going to get missed from my post before

    A 780 is better

    looking at the 670 compared to the 770 - jesus look at what a fail the 4gb card is. you'll need a lot better performance difference between the two gpus to take advantage of the added Vram.
  12. after all the answers, iv narrowed it down to
    EVGA GTX770 4GB - http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/50440-04g-p4-3778-kr
    and
    EVGA GTX780 3GB - http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/50043-03g-p4-2784-kr

    im leaning more towards the 780

    that's a very good lean . .
  14. The 780 would be better than the 770 4gb, they may be quite a bit more but it at least won't need to run in SLI to power a triple monitor setup for a while. 3gb is a good amount of Vram, too.
