The 770 is slightly faster than the 280x. Runs cooler, runs more efficiently.

And 2GB. 2GB is more than sufficient currently for resolutions up to 1440p (in which SLI 2GB 770s still do great @ 1440p)

4GB is more or less for people running multiple monitors, or 4K res.

For SLI you can only run cards with the same amount of memory, no mixing. & It will handle 2 monitors fine, but remember 2 monitors will not share the same image/ or expand like Nvidia 3D surround does.

He has 2x 1080p, presumably the third will be 1080p.

For 3 monitors I'd recommend a 780, though. But that's if you think that in the future you will go with nVidia 3d surround, for a triple monitor setup because it will need much more power!

I can't afford a 780 if I had that money I would buy a 290 and I have a corsair ax860i psu so power is not a problem.

Then don't worry about it for now :)  If you end up needing more power you can always just SLI but remember they must be of the same amount of Vram.
