As I said in the other post. The 4GB card will be more beneficial if you choose a monitor with a resolution > 1080. The higher the resolution the more textures that are loaded onto the screen, which requires more vram. If you really want to go all out then go for a 780 and be done with it.

Thanks, yeah, i just wanted more opinions, especially with the monitor.
It's so bloody hard to pick, since there's barely any reviews, and they cost $600-800.
With the GPU, should I get 780 instead of 770 4gb?
Or maybe drop the high resolution?

I'm not sure what the prices would be for you though. These are US.

Will that make that Nvidia 780 any better?
It looks really good, and cheaper. But I live in Australia and I don't want the hassle of getting a problematic card and having to ship things.
I think i'm pretty happy with my build, because some of those parts I can't get in Australia either.

I think all I need left is to decide 1440p or 1080p, then I can decide a graphics card. And hopefully the rest of my compenents will like either outcome.

The screen you put up is ok, but not available here in Aus.

I've decided i'm going with 1440p and 4gb GPU
I'm searching ebay for a monitor right now.
Are the korean ones reliable?
I've decided on http://www.mwave.com.au/product/sku-aa32343-asus_pb278q...

So am I all set now?
I just need to switch the 2gb graphics card for a 4gb one?

I picked a 4gb GTX670 for my 1440p build (which I have not built yet).

Hows the GTX670 on 1440p?
With a HD7990 in AC4 i get 50 fps with max settings..
So much for having 4k resolution in the near future..

I love it! I agree, 4K would be way too much video for today's machines to pump out.
So happy that I finally broke down and built the new rig, it is a pleasure to work on.
Thanks for asking and take care!
