I am on my way to the store, so please give me last minute advice! xD

I will only use the system for gaming. Budget is not a major issue, so either the 550 euro aftermarket 780 Ti with 3GB VRAM or the 500 euro EVGA 780 with 6GB..? Help, please!! Fast! ;) 

Love,
Frogg

GTX 780 6GB will be faster because 3GB will bottleneck the 780 ti for 4k.

Good luck! hope I answered in time.

780ti > 780 6 gb. 780ti is performs better in all accounts in 4K except in watchdogs we they are tied.

I'd have to disagree since 4k is so massive that 3GB isn't going to be enough.

I disagree with getting the GTX 780 6GB. Even though 3GB is kinda limiting in terms of VRAm for 4k, the GTX 780 6GB won't outperform the GTX 780Ti 3GB. The higher end model will still be the faster card.

Single GPU solutions aren't yet powerful enough to give you optimal performance for all games at 4k resolutions

The lack of gpu power of gtx 780 isn't enough for 4k either.

I can see the 780 ti will be faster, however from what a lot of people have said the 3GB will bring stuttering and lag at 4k resolutions.

The 780 isn't powerful enough to play games in 4k resolution at all, regardless of what memory it has. Realistically you need 3 780s in triple SLI to make 4K viable.

Thats wrong or there A LOT of morons that paid for 780SLI to game at 4K only to lag and stutter.

You should be looking at sli or crossfire configurations for 4k gaming, or even a dual GPU card like the r9 295X2 which is very expensive though.

the only reason 780 ti didnt perform well in w watchdogs is because it is coded badly, I'd recommend you go for the 780 Ti, it has roughly 40-50fps in 4k

If you plan to stay with a single card go with the GTX 780 Ti or r9 290x... if you want to sli you could do 780 6gb sli or r9 290/r9 290x in crossfire.

The only reason i'd say get the 780 6gb over the 780 ti is if you plan to get a second card later on.
