sli does not add ram together, two cards with 2gb does not give you 4gb its only 2gb. you also cant add desktop ram to a graphics card.... you2 770 has 2gb and your desktop has 4gb, you cant add any to the graphics card, it just doesn't work that way. Whatever is on the 770 is what you get.

you can but there is no point, other memory is reserved for things, so changing it will decrease in reserved memory and could decrease performance, best to leave it how it is, and you really do have 4GB Vram, it should be under total.

You mean your 770 have 2GB, have your computer have 4 GB Ram?
They are not the same. So no.

the only GTX 770 DC2 card I can find is from asus and it has 2gb of ram on it. That is it you can not add any ram to it. It doesn't matter how much ram you have on the motherboard you cant share it with the video card.
