Hey, im building my first gaming rig and at first im just going to have 1 screen and 1 gpu, but later, in a couple of months or so i would like to get extra monitors so i can have one of those fancy triple monitorsetups. ive come to understand that vram is important to not bottleneck your pc at higher resolutions so i was wondering what you guys think would be the best solution. sli 770 gb or sli 780 3gb. i want to be able to play stuff like bf4 and the withcer 3 etc at max if possible.

Best solution

If you can get it the SLI GTX780's would be the 770's and pretty much anything else. 3GB is enough for 3 screens. Good luck with your beast!

3gb for 3 screens in battlefield isnt enough for max settings:


I have the EVGA GTX 770 classified with 4gb. With 3x 27" LG screens Battlefield 3 on max settings asks 3gb of my card. fps is around 30 @ 5760x1080. Just ordered another GTX 770 classified for upcoming battlefield 4 and GTA 5 (which will probably come to pc).

PC setup:
Intel I7 3770k @ 3.9 Ghz
8gb RAM @ 2400 Mhz
240 gb SSD
1x EVGA GTX 770 classified with ACX cooler.
Cooler Master 1000w PSU

There's no difference in terms of performance between 2gb and 4gb versions of the gtx 770/680 even at 3x1080p. What is more important is the limits placed on the 256-bit bus on the gk104 gpu as opposed to the 384-bit bus on the gk110 gpu. The 3gb on a 384-bit bus will perform differently than 3gb on a 256-bit bus. apples to oranges
