I don't know which to put into my haswell build.
I Want to get a Gigabyte 4GB 770 to "futureproof" my system and then SLI later.
Or should I just get with x2 EVGA 2GB 770 cards.

The 780 is a 3GB VRAM card so im guessing they will only be making 3GB and 4GB
Cards now. Which is why i'm more leaning to the 4GB card.

I will be running a 1080p monitor for now with the possibility of expanding that.
and IM sure they will make a single monitor exceeding 1080p shortly soon as well.


Thanks for your help.

SLI 770s are definitely the better option. The 4GB of Vram makes almost no difference in performance even at tri-Screen resolutions.

What about next games. If the 780 iz 3gb im zure they are not going to be making 2gb vram anymore so wouldnt it be better to be safe then sorry

When playing some AAA game titles like Metro Last Light or Crysis 3 in multiple-monitor configuration, the game requires over 2GB memory. the difference is obvious. I would rather buy 780 3GB or 770 4GB card for "futureproof" especially for 2nd screen support on Battlefield 4. SLI consumes too much power.

At 1080p, which the OP is using, anything over 2GB isn't necessary and the 780 is overpriced for the performance.


Hi yes. As of right now im using 1080p but come december I will br usong 3 monitors. Also next gen games are most like going to be using 3gb or mkre of vram wont they. So if id get a 4gb card now I can always sli another 4gb in the future. Or would sli 2gb sc 770s give more performance then a single 4gb card as stated by another user.
