Hello all,
I have recently purchased me a new rig and now I have a couple of questions. I have a I5-4670K @ 4GHz, 16GB RAM @ 2133MHz and one MSI GTX760 2GB Gaming. I now want to play BF4 on ultra on my 1080p monitor, looked up the specs and found out that a GTX760 won't be able to run it at 60+ fps. No problem, I'll just add one in SLI (mobo MSI Z87-G45), but then I saw that BF4 uses more than 2GB of vram... So I was wondering, should I indeed get myself a second 760 2GB or sould I get rid of the one I have now and get myself a GTX770 4GB? I think the 770 would be the better choice also because it's a bit more future proof and I can always add another one in SLI.

BTW: pls don't bother me with posts like 'get rid of it and get yourself a R9 280, better price/performance' orso, I have had serious trouble with AMD gpu's so I'll stick with the green camp ;)

Have you even played the game to see performance for yourself?

If you insist on more power I suggest returning the 760 and get a 780 to overkill the game.

Best solution

the 770 would be good but i would try and catch a 780 on sale. the 760 really isnt enough as you see already to max out the game and get 60fps. The 770 4gb would do it yes and you could sli it with another later on.

Thanks people :D  I order from a local store and I don't think they will put a 780 on sale anytime soon, so I'll be going with the 770 4GB :)  thx again for helping me out

no problem. The 780 as nice of a card as it is for the price i think it would be more wise to wait for maxwell and the 800 series but the 770 would be a great sli setup.
