Im buying an upgrade from my HD7850 next month and wondered how that card would run.

it also depends on what cpu u currently have.a dual 770 might run it well on ultra

In my opinion, its not the right decision to buy 770 sli. If u have the budget to buy 770 sli, then why not buy single gtx 780 or hd7970, then after their perfromance is not enough for maxing out games, buy one more and sli them. About your question, gtx 770 can SURELY max out Bf4, the recommended requirements are gtx660, even if maxing out game needs more than that, the gtx 770 will be more than enough. But before buying it, you need to mention your CPU as it might bottleneck it, and also the res of your build as somethings are important: PSU,etc..

Well a single gtx 780 is good.still 770 sli is faster than a single gtx 780 at high resolution.anyway i will suggest u lean towards nvidia cards.amd card it good,but the drivers update just took quiet a while.

Speedy, nice processor, a new i5 processor wont bottleneck most of the GPUs that are present today, i dont mean 4670k is any i5, its from the best Tell me, you will get the 2 Gb version right? cause i wanted to give you a piece of advice.

Yep 2GB cos the 4gb is way overkill unless i wanted to run multiple monitors but i'm a single monitor type of guy.

True.2gb with gddr5 is more than enough on a single monitor setup.

At first, i thought as you both but articles changed my opinion, take a look on this http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/crysis_3_graphics_..., so if you
are the kind of guys who wants to max out everything even aa, then crysis 3 wont be in the list of smoothest gameplay experiences. If you can skip some settings, then it will suit you perfectly. Skyrim also is claimed to use more than 2gb vram when heavily modded (high res texture, etc..). Anyway, crysis 3 is supposed to be a perfect prototype of the next-gen games as its game engine "Crytek" is much more developed than others. So, i think as you, that by the time the games will use 4 Gb vram, the performance of gtx 770 may not be enough to operate it and other limiting factors will appear (shaders, etc). But maybe a 3 GB AMD GPU would be a better choice if u need a more futureproof card, and performance difference is not that huge. AMD operate at higher temps, with higher power consumption and Nvidia drivers are much better, If u are planning to setup double cards(SLI or CFX), Nvidia is the winner, as crossfire has A LOT of issues with that. Overclocking will be much beneficial in AMD cards and so on.

Final word: The decision is yours, i just tried to show you all points of comparison and you should decide which to choose.

EDIT: After searching for sometime, i found some useful comparisons, maybe they will help you as well as the mentioned above:

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_770_re... : in this review, when choosing the game, you will find hd 7970 in the table of comparison, compare them and suit yourself
Best of luck with your buy and wish this helped (:

As i said dual 770:p 

Actually, what i said didnt mean dual 770, i suggest that, if he wants Nvidia, he get only one 770(which is able to max out any game out here) and wait for it until its old or cant do him what he wants, then buy another gpu or get another 770 and sli them. Getting gtx 770 sli seems to be wastage of money, as he might be forced to get a new psu to support both cards' power consumption, senseless..

Hey guys.

I was looking at the conversation you were having and OP mentioned only wanting to run a single monitor.

I, however, am looking at running 2 -1920x1080 monitors with a 4670 (not k)

I was wondering if that's cause enough to go for the 4GB over the 2GB.
Thanks
