Hey everyone!
My name is Alan and I'm a very indecisive person.

I decide to upgrade my PC and buy a nVidia GeForce GTX 770 4GB, but I can't decide what manufacturer choose.

This are my choices:
- MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Gaming OC 4GB GDDR5 2DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card N770 TF 4GD5/OC = $385
- Gigabyte GTX 770 GDDR5-4GB 2xDVI/HDMI/DP OC WINDFORCE 3X Graphics Card GV-N770OC-4GD = $418
- EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked with ACX Cooler 4 GB GDDR5 256-Bit Dual-Link DVI-I/DVI-D HDMI DP SLI Ready Graphics Card 04G-P4-3774-KR = $420

Now:
1. I'm not thinking in overclock myself, never did it, not interested in doing it now.
2. It worths the money to buy the 4GB instead a 2GB?
3. What would you recommend me about the manufacturer? EVGA offers the "SuperClocked" and I heard that the Gigabyte "WINDFORCE" is really cool.
4. MSI is significantly cheaper (I'm from Argentina, South America and 30 USD is a lot of money for me).

The MSI is a good card, but I have the EXGA ACX 770, and it is a phenomenal card. Evga is, IMO, the best aftermarket brand for nvidia cards. I would go with the 4 GB version if you plan on playing at higher resolutions, or if you mod your games. I have a 2 GB, and it runs all my games at max settings w/ mods (Skyrim) at 1080p
