Hey,

I'm going to order my new PC this evening, and right now I'm debating between those 2 cards.

(I'm getting a Intel Xeon 1230V3 which performance is similiar to the 4770)

4096MB EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW
2048MB Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770

Same price for both.

I'm planning on keeping the same graphicscard for atleast 2 years, and I heard that some PS4 games are already using 3gb vram.

Also, I have 3 monitors, but I'm rarely playing on a 5760x1080 resolution.


So, which of the 2 cards would suit me better? I also heard some stuff that the 670 is not even powerful enough anyway when it comes to using 4gb of vram, so it's kind of pointless(?)

Hope you can help me out, thanks.

Price wise the GTX 770 makes the most sense. Better performance and not much of a jump cost wise.

However, the 4GB VRAM on the 670 makes more sense for high resolution gaming. Though a single 670 for 5760x1080 isn't enough power anyhow so that pretty much negates that advantage.

If you were to play at 1920x1080 I'd say go for the GTX 770.

Alright, I'm probably going with the 770 then.

Thanks for your answer!

no contest the GTX 770 is the better choice for a few reasons.
the GTX 670 is incapable of utilizing 4GB's of VRAM, no strong enough, it would take Tri-SLi to get any benefit @ 5760 x 1080p resolution or higher.
I'm not sure the GTX 770 and push 4GB's either but reviews on that are coming out and I hope it can.
for now the 2GB cards have been proven to be enough and actually a few frames faster in some benches over the 4GB versions.
and pricing, the GTX 770 is $399+ while last I checked the GTX 670 was still $350+, that alone makes no sense..
