Hello wonderful people,
I'm looking to purchase a pc this holiday season. I'm stuck between these two graphics cards and I'd like a second opinion on which one would be superior.

Both the ASUS GTX 770 and the Gigabyte GTX 770 (the 2gb version) share the same price point on newegg.ca. Both cards appeal to me very much, and while the gigabyte gtx 770 is faster in some benchmarks I've seen, I want to clarify it's superiority before I make a purchase.

Is the Gigabyte GTX 770 Windforce OC (2gb version) better than the Asus GTX 770 DirectCU II OC, or vice versa? If they happen to be exactly the same, I'll likely purchase the Asus because of how it looks ;)

I can not comment on the 770 specifically, but when looking for my 780 there was a break down of the EVGA, MSI, GIGABYTE and ASUS cards and the Asus won the top spot for quietness, temp, and speed/room for more overclocking. Overall though all are made great though, a lot of the choice boils down to brand loyalty and customer service (reason I went with EVGA).

Also see if a 4gig Vram edition would be in your price range.

Well, it really comes down to your personal preference, because both cards are amazing.
I'm getting an Asus 770, but again, it's personal preference.

Thank you for answering.
What are the advantages of more 4gigs of Vram other than more efficient multi monitor setups?

A lot of the newer AAA games have been noted to be maxing out 2gigs of VRAM, popular one with this is BF4. AMD and nVidia are both making 3 and 4 gigs standard on cards now.

In dirt 3, at 1080P ultra, I use 2700+ of Vram... No joke
