So, i currently have:

i7-3770k
GIGABYTE GA-Z77-D3H
8GB CORSAIR DOMINATOR
NZXT SWITCH 810 (WHITE)
AREOCOOL TEMPLARIUS 550W
500GB SEAGATE HDD

as you can see i don't have a graphics card i was looking at the KFA2 GTX 770 as its all white and would suit my white theme however it only has 2gb vram and i have dual monitors and im getting a third then i stumbled across the price drop on GTX 670's i can get two asus direct cu II cards with 4gb vram and only pay £20 extra.

GTX 770: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX...

GTX 670: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/4gb-asus-gtx-670-directc...

BUT and the big BUT is my current motherboard only supports crossfire so i would have to upgrade it then i came across the asrock z77 extreme 4, this mobo supports sli and is z77 so supports my 3770k and the cherry on the cake is it is all black with gold accents to match my theme of black and white furthermore it is only around £130 due to the release of haswell so i would have to sell my board for around £50 and dig out another £80 for the board.

now my question is should i just get the 2gb gtx 770 or buy one 4gb gtx 670 now and then when i get funds upgrade the mobo and extra 670? thanks in advance :)

if you have no experience in dual GPU, you better buy GTX 770 and be grateful with it

dual gpu might not be something you really want

btw, changing PSU to a better quality one will be very good upgrade
