Pc set-up:
Mobo - Asus p8h61-m lx3 r2.0.
CPU - intel G2020 (3rd gen)
HDD - seagate 500gb or 1tb
RAM - transcend 8gb ddr3
Cabinet - ATX Cab
GPU - asus hd 7770 1gb gddr5 (not going higher)
PSU - 450w

These are my queries:
1. Will the mobo support the hd 7770
2. Is it any use going for 2gb gddr5
3. Which is better 7750 oc, gtx650 or 7770
4. Is 1tb hdd necessary. Do anybody actually use 1tb.
5. Is an ATX cabinet (the standard one) ok for this setup.
6. Are there any varieties of the asus hd 7770.
7. Is 450w ok for this set-up.

Yes you mobo will support hd 7770.
I think 2 gb GDDR5 memory is enough at 1080p gaming.
Hd 7770 is better than gtx 650 and hd 7750.
Yes, 1 tb is necessary but it depends. Maybe 500 gb can also be enough for you.
ATX cabinet is great for this setup.
There are not any varieties of asus hd 7770, but there are of hd 7770 like gigabyte hd 7770, sapphire hd 7770, etc.
Yes, 450w is totally more than enough for that setup.

If i go for 7770 1gb gddr5, will it be enough to play games like far cry 3, dead space 3 at med to high settings and also on a 42'' led hd tv? Will any game take up 2gb? Will 2gb be any benefit for a 128-bit mem channel card like the 7770?
Just 1 more thing, is it worth going for 1tb hdd because if an hdd has a short life then i feel there's no point of it.

Thank you for the support.

1 gb GDDR5 memory is enough to play far cry 3 and dead space 3 on med-high on 40-45 FPS on any full hd tv, btw is it only hd tv(720p) or full hd tv (1080p). Because if it is only hd tv then you will be able to play on very-high to ultra settings. That 2 gb GDDR5 memory will only be usefull on full hd resolution (1920x1080p) and it will be only fully used on games like crysis 3 and battlefield 4. So 2 gb will benefit you but only on 1080p res. Yet, 1 gb will be fine.
I don't think an hdd has a short life. Because I still have an HDD which I bought almost 10 years ago and it still works. So that 1 tb hdd will work even more. But if you can get a 500 gb hdd and with that saved money if you are able to get an hd 7790, then I would recommend to do so.

1080p full hd on 42'' tv is what i plan to use. So if i get a choice between the 7750 2gb and 7770 1gb or 7770 2gb and 7790 1gb what should i choose. Tell me for both. What about nvidia? i heard they're great even for 1gb compared to any amd 2gb bcoz of their physX. Will the gtx 650 be a wise choice bcoz of physX compared to 7770?

Okay in that case you should go for hd 7790 even if it's 1 gb because it doesn't matter much on 1080p res. And it's not a great idea to use physx with gtx 650. Physx can decrase frame rates like crap sometimes. So physx is only an option with stronger gpus not with gtx 650. Gtx 650 is even weaker than hd 7770. So hd 7790 is currently the best choice

Is the gtx 650 ti a bad choice for physX as well? Is the physX not worth in any of the gtx 600 series? Also heard that amd has a lot of driver issues and people recommending that i use nvidia for long term (which i mentioned before 5+ to even 10yrs) and amd if u plan to change in a few years short. Is that true? Based on all these factors give me the final verdict. Nvidia or Amd. I'll take your suggestion.

Gtx 650 ti is not bad for physx but it will not be able to handle it on high settings after this year as physx takes bit of a frame rates. But physx can run simply great on a strong gpu like gtx 660. Amd's new drivers are lot better than the older ones, I agree they had a bit of a problem while updating. But almost all of those problems are sorted out in their new drivers, so amd's drivers won't be any problem to you. Amd and Nvidia both gpus can live 10 years long and even longer, I wouldn't say nvidia is better. They just have less issues and less driver problems. Yet I wouldn't say that is true.
I think you should go for hd 7790 as it is also much better than gtx 650ti and is equally priced.
But I doubt you might wan't to keep gtx 650ti or hd 7790 for more than 5 years. By that time they will not remain strong enough to run new games not even on lowest settings. So if you wan't a gpu that will be able to run games till next 5-7 years. I say you wait and save more money and get a high-end gpu like hd 7970 ghz edition.

Then i'll probably get a new pc when games become more demanding. For now i'll stick to the 7770. Thank you for the help!
