If you are planning on going SLI you will want the 4 GB version, in the future the 2GB of VRAM will be the largest limiting factor for performance. However, if you have the budget for this, I would think about getting a 780 TI, mainly because it is quite a bit faster than a 770 (not 2 in SLI though) but mostly because of the hefty 3GB VRAM and the 384-bit memory bus, whereas the GTX770 has a 256 bit memory bus. This means that the memory of the card is more effectively used with the wider bandwith, and besides, the 780 Ti is the fastest single GPU on the planet right now, so you would have the most powerful video card out there now. If you don't have quite enough for the Ti a normal 780 is a beast too! Good luck!

2GB SLI <Limited to 2GB of usable memory.
4GB can use 4.
If you have more than one monitor, or one with a resolution over 1080p you are going to need more than 2 GB of vram.

SLI Two 780 Ti's?? If you're willing to spend that much money, congrats on having one of the most powerful home systems!!! You're going to enjoy top notch tri-monitor performance with that setup, and you could probably get by with a single 780 Ti if you are willing to have a lower framerate or slightly lower settings, but if you are up to spending the extra $700, by all means, enjoy yourself! You're gonna be golden for many years to come with that OP rig, and as it seems that price really isn't an object for you, I see nothing wrong with your build whatsoever. Have a blast!

Well if you can afford to SLI 780 Ti's there's no reason to even think about the 770 to address the topic of this thread, the 780 Ti will be incredibly powerful and two of them will crush anything you throw at it, and that CPU overclocked is going to provide little to no bottleneck on the cards. If you can, go for it, its an incredible setup!!!
