Hello

Im building a new PC and I'd like to know which of these cards should I get if I will have dual 27'' with 2560x1440 res. I plan to use one screen for games and other for aplications and stuff.

I can get GTX 760 MSI , 2GB version for 230 euro
and GTX 760 MSI , 4GB version for 270 euro
I want to get dual SLI cards

I want this build to be futureproof somehow , sooooo which of these would you recommend me and why?

Thanks a lot!

I think you're mistaken. Are you sure the 4gb version is cheaper than the 2gb one? Anyway, if you'll ask me, you're ok with the two 760s 2GB version. 4gb versions of cards that are originally 2gb are overrated. Even reputable tech review sites and magazines say this.

Ah yeh , sorry , I updated the post. Soooo you say its not worth it? Why do they make 4GB version if its not rly worth it? Even if I'd have double 27'' monitor?

I'm not saying it's not worth it. Even if you have two monitors, you mentioned that you will only be gaming on just ONE of the two monitors, so the 2x2gb 760s is more than enough. Should you decide to do gaming on a 3-display setup, then you'll benefit from the 2x4gb 760s.

But if money's no object, get the 4gb variant. But since I'm more of a bang-for-buck person, I'm having a hard time recommending it.
