Okay so I've been saving for a gaming computer and decided to go with a $800 budget. I've got two gpu's that I'm looking at. The first one is the EVGA GTX 760 4gb FTW with the ACX cooling, and the second is the EVGA GTX 770 2gb superclocked with the ACX cooling. Both of these cards fit within my budget but I need to know which one will preform better. I like the gtx 770 but it's only has 2gbs of gddr5 ram, while the 760 has 4gbs. I do like to play it safe and I want good performance, so if 4gbs of ram is being utilized more, will it mean better experience compared to 2gbs even though it's a older card? Also, I'll be playing the usual games like Arma and bf4, maybe some Crysis, and I will only being using one monitor as far as I know.

I would expect better performance from the 770. RAM amounts over 2 GB are typically overkill unless you are running some kind of crazy setup with multiple monitors/extreme resolutions. For the standard 1080p setup, 2 GB should be good. The faster chip is what is most likely to provide you better FPS at this point.

The 770 will absolutely outperform the 760 in almost every case. Having more that 2Gb or video RAM is only helpful in very specific circumstances (eg triple screen gaming with high levels of AA turned on).

GTX 770 is your best bet. GTX 760 doesn't even have enough power to utilize 2gb properly let alone 4. although if you want to make a little saving Radeon R9-280X is a good alternative. and it should be about 20-30$ cheaper and only 5% sloer than GTX 770.

Thanks man, I've seen some good things about both cards but I'm going to go with the 770 now instead of the 760 like I was planning.

I just built a new rig... 4670k z87 for bf4... I just purchased a GTX 770 2gb. Love this card and I run Ultra settings at about 70fps at 1440x900... now I am probably going to return this card and buy a 4gb version. No I don't have multiple monitors and I honestly run well sort of a low res screen 1440 x900 compared to others out there but when playing multiplayer and running on ultra settings the card gets up to 1,880MB of ram usage so 1.88gb.... That is too close to the 2gb mark for my taste. I just built a killer rig for years of gaming. When this GTX 770 gets a bit slow a year or so from now I will drop in another one in SLI mode and continue to rock but 2gb is just too close for my taste. Just saying.


P.S... if you cant get the GTX 770 4gb than get the GTX 770 2gb over the 760 4gb. Honestly the 770 is that much better. Or if you don't mind AMD the R9-280x is prob the best value out there right now. I have just been a Gforce guy for years so its my pref.

Dude you probably won't even notice a difference from 2 to 4 gb on that res, at least from what I've read.

Let us know if you do buy it. I would be surprised if it makes any difference
