so im buying the following parts for my build:

I7-4770k (gonna overclock later when i get a new cpu fan)

corsair vengeance 8 gb 1600 mhz

seagate barracuda 1tb 7200 rpm

kingston 120 gb ssd 450 mb write/read speed (called the v300 or somthing)

asus dvd drive nothing fancy

asus maximus formula vi

corsair carbide 500r atx case

corsair hx850w psu modular (thinking sli later so need the wattage right?)

pcbuilding bracelet for staticprotection

w8 64 bit oem

and gigabyte geforce gtx 780 oc rev 2.0

Plan is to start with one monitor and at some point expand to 3 and go sli with 780. will this setup do it? will the 780 3gb be good enough for say bf4 3 monitors? or would i be better of with going sli with gtx 770 4 gb even though its weaker, but seeing as it has extra vram. your opinions would be greatly apriciated as im placing my order tonight and buying a pc in norway fucking ridiculusly expencive.

I see that my question might be a tiny bit unclear, but basicly rate my build + what is better gtx 780 3gb oc sli vs gtx 770 4 gb sli for 3 monitors. as long as im only using 1 screen il stick with only 1 card and the 780 will obviously be superior.

I think vram is a performance issue, not a functional issue.
And... it seems that there is little performance difference.
I would go with the GTX780 superclock.
Read this report:
