Hello everyone. So......I want to get into the high resolution field. But the problem is, I can't because of my gtx 770 only having 2gb. I want to play on good settings for battlefield 4, a bit of minecraft, skyrim, metro last light, call of duty and etc etc.

So I have 3 decisions to make really. Buy another evga gtx 770 for sli, a gtx 780, or get the new gtx 780 ti? Im more focused on having a good gaming experience.

Can you also recommend me a good card? And either a 1440p monitor, or a good 1080p monitor?

I'm Canadian, so prices for you will be different.

My specs:
I5 4670k at 4.4ghz
Gskill 8gb 1600mhz
MSI g45 z87 gaming motherboard
Evga gtx 770 acx
Samsung 840 pro ssd 128gb
WD black 1tb
4 corsair af120 and 2 af140
And nzxt phantom 410

I'd add another 770 and get a 120Hz/144Hz 1080p monitor with Gsync. But even as your system sits it should do very well on all those games at 1080p.

If you're going to run single monitor, I would grab the 780ti for maximizing your gaming. Unless you're running duo/multi monitor SLI will be the better choice. Also, BenQ XL2420TE is a very high quality gaming monitor ( bit expensive ). I'm going to grab myself one as well very soon.

+1 for the GTX 780 Ti like others have suggested. I'd also recommend going with the EVGA GTX 780 Ti SC w/ACX http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GMTGJIU. EVGA has the best customer support in the industry and their cards are very reliable. The ACX cooler is quite efficient also.

I like that price, but the sad part is I'm Canadian. So that price doesn't work for me. The canadian amazon, they sell the gtx 780 ti stock cooler for almost 1K!

Sucks to be Canadian sometimes....

Hmm, I'm not sure if Maxwell is coming out this year, looks like we'll have to see what they will bring us. I hope they have a 4 GB vram card planned. I guess for now, I'll wait for the g sync monitors, and Maxwell to come out. Thanks guy for the answers and help!
