  1. 770 is great for 1080p
  2. If you consider to use two monitors, it would be better to buy a gpu with at least 3gb of memory like a hd 7970...

    780's also have 3GB
  4. To be honest I suggest you get 2 GTX 770's. Together the performance is better than a GTX Titan. Also with two of the 770s you will have 4GB of Video Memory or 8GB if you want to spend extra for the 4GB versions of the card for better performance on multiple monitors.
  5. The GTX 770 has a better price to performance ratio. But if you can afford the GTX 780, why not. The more powerful, the better.
  6. You should also check your gpu's max resolution

    Indeed, 780 seems capable to handle two monitors pretty well

    That's not correct - in SLI you have the vRAM of the lowest card - so 2x2GB 770's would give you 2GB.

    What he said.
    770 is more bang for the buck.
    780 is more bang...period.

    GTX 770 would be great for saving some extra cash, if budget isn't an issue than surely the GTX 780 is a great card as well. I should add that there is currently a 4GB GTX 770 by Zotac:

    ZOTAC ZT-70304-10P GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card - $439.99

  10. Maybe I'll go with MSI Twin Frozr gtx 770 4gb coz i need a new display... Thanks all of you though

    Where did you come up with that info?
  12. I think the GTX 770 is a great value and more than sufficient. I can run Far Cry 3 at max settings without AA on my GTX 670 which is not nearly as good (but contains the same GPU). I would buy the cheapest GTX 770 you can get your hands on. Then in the future, if you run into a game you can't handle, simply add a second GTX 770 in SLI.
