Ok, so I bought a B-Stock GTX 770 Dual SC 4gb to go into my first build and I immediately regret the decision. Do they take returns? I tried looking online but they didnt have anything for the b-stocks.

More about : returning gtx 770 4gb gtx 780

Why are you regretting your decision?
BTW if you are, sell it to me for $50 jk

Ive bought most of my build, and at close to 2000$ I should have a 780 in there, I just feel like it could benefit the whole system

The 770 is a solid card.
Are you having problems running games on your card? Stuttering?

well I haven't really build it yet, Im waiting for the cpu to come in the mail. Im just second guessing my decision, it was cheap but at the same time I feel like I should have gone all out for the 780.

That's not really making any sense. Without even trying out a card you're discarding it. Just give it a chance. I'm sure you have a return guarantee if you do want to return it.

In fact, you would have gone for the 780 2gb as it would be similarly priced to this card, hmm?
I'm here to tell you you made a wise choice.
Getting a 4GB variant leaves you open to add another 4GB card in SLI configuration.

If you are play 1080p, the 770 is really all you need.
If the price you paid for the 4gb version is close to the price of a 780, and you can return the 770. Something to consider for longevity.

I'm thinking in the other direction.
Games such as Battlefield 4 already require more RAM than that.
SLI'ing that card will not yield much benefit.
However, a 4GB card has more RAM, allowing for more performance when SLI'ing.
