For future proofing, would it be better to have two 770s with 4gb VRAM, or one 780ti?

I am a junior in high school, and I know that if I won't have money during college to upgrade my computer. Because of this, I am trying to make my computer as future prof as possible in preperation. So do you think in 4 years having only 3gb of VRAM will still be ok, or should I get two 770s with 4gb of VRAM?

  1. I think if you want to play games with single monitor setup than even 2GB VRAM will be sufficient for future. And I prefer a single powerful GPU instead of SLI/Crossfire.

    If you are thinking that you can multiply VRAM then you are wrong. Ex. 2 x 770 with 2GB VRAM = 2GB VRAM, not 4GB VRAM.

    I know I can't multiply ram, but you can buy a 4gb version of the 770. I will go one monitor 1440p, and maybe a second later.
  3. Yes you can always buy a 4GB VRAM version GPU, of course it will not bite you. Go with your desired version it may help you gaming on that resolution with dual monitor setup.

    I was just telling you what is required and what is not. Though you can play with 2GB VRAM with dual monitor of 1440p. Good luck.

    Two Gb's starts to show as a problem on some game today, even at 1920 x 1080. At higher resolution, 2560 x 1440, you really should consider 3Gb as mandatory...

    Going with 770's, those are really just 680's "rebadged" so they are getting a bit dated already.

    I'd go with SLI 780's or single 780Ti (that should be plenty of GPU power for awhile...)

    (I'm running a GTX 690 which I thought I'd NEVER outgrow.... ha, 1 year later there are games I can NOT play on Ultra...)
