MSI N760 TF 4GD5/OC or MSI N770 TF 2GD5/OC

It is for a new system:

mobo: Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K / 3,4GHz
CPU cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB DDR3-1600 Kit CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8
PSU: Corsair RM Series 750W (might SLI; not known yet)
HC: Western Digital Black V2 1TB WD1003FZEX
Monitor 1: Asus VG248QE
Monitor2: older model samsung 1900-1200 60Hz 1ms
Case: Aerocool XPredator X3 Evil Black Edition
OS: Windows 8.1

Main use is gaming for monitor 1, watching movies secondary.

Monitor 2 is mainly for the display of IRC, mumble, Teamspeak,...

Only when playing Eve online I will put a second account on it. All other games I'll be using monitor1.

I only found 10€ difference for both cards so I was wondering if it was worth it? Or which card would benefit me most.

Thank you for your time.

770 is better. For a single 1080p 2gb is enough.

I don't understand will they even release a 4 gb 760 since it can't operate effectively with that much vram active. Gtx 770 would win easily

Go for the GTX 770, it's much better than the 760. It may have 2GB less memory (which is used for multiple monitor gaming) but since you will be only playing Eve on 2 monitors and the rest on 1 monitor, overall the 770 is a much better solution.

What brand are the cards? There is an EVGA GTX 770 with 4GB memory around 40-50 euros more expensive, if your budget allows it, you might wanna go for that one, but you won't really need it.

4GB VRAM is only necessary for 3 monitor gaming. Otherwise 2GB VRAM is enough.

Get the 770 2GB.

I think the 4gb 760 is mainly for SLI, where the extra Vram could be used.

Thank you all very much.
MSI N770 TF 2GD5/OC it is then.

I hope everybody agrees that I give the first poster the best answer.
Although I greatly appreciate all the people that added an explaination as to why it is better.
Helps me understand the decision.

Thank you all!
