Solved

If I get two GTX 760s, should I get 4GB or 2GB models.

I plan on doing triple 1080p 144Hz monitors but only playing the game on the one middle monitor, and then having the other two screens monitoring the video capturing etc. Should I get the 4GB models because don't the GPU's share the frame buffer of 4GB? So it'd be 2GB each. So if I just got the 2GB models it'd be 1GB each. And wouldn't that sort of bottleneck them in games if they only had 1GB each? Thanks in advance if I don't reply to your answers :)

    The 4GB are a good idea in SLI.
  2. With gaming on only a 1080p single monitor you would not need more than 2gig cards. Even then I have two GTX670's in SLI running 3x Asus 27" monitors in Surround and have not had any problems at all.
  3. graphics cards dont share the video memory each keeps its own
    and you cant use one with 2 gb and one with 4 gb and get 3 on each or 6 in total ... it will be 2 each if i am correct and they are compatible
    now since you already got 3 displays ... you wont resist the temptation of playing on all of them so go with the 4gb model

    I actually don't like triple monitor gaming, I'm a "competitive" gamer and having to literally turn your head to look left to right just to check the sides of your character in a FPS is a "no no" takes to much time and is too distracting.
