2Gb Or 4Gb Gtx770?

Recommended Posts

I am buying parts for my i7 4790k system today and was wondering should I go for the 2gb or 4gb GTX770?

 

I will be running one 40" Samsung led 1080p tv and possibly a 20" dell lcd monitor for gauges. I may run the second monitor off another computer but can I run it on the 2gb card with the tv?

 

Right now Newegg has a deal that ends today and I can get a EVGA ACX 2gb GTX770 for $299. Thanks

Just get the 4GB its more future proof. And if you plan on using p3d V2 you'll need the 4GB sometimes V2 uses 3 GB of vram

Is it going to make a difference in performance with just FSX on the screen/screens I mentioned? I supposed there's a chance I might do a 2 or 3 monitor setup in the future anyways.

 Get the 4gb its worth the extra money you'll either have to spend it now or later lol and yes 4GB will help with a multi monitor set up. If you can afford it Get the GTX780 6GB

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487040 its only $189 more than I paid for my GTX 770 and the 780 has a much better GPU the 6GB will help too

Shame they don't ship to the UK as that is far cheaper than over here for a card with less specs

Well, we will see just how well a 2GB GTX 770 handles FSX/P3D when my new PC arrives next week. Having said that, I only run at 1280x1024 resolution on a single 19" monitor, so I will not exactly be stressing it.

Let me know how it works out. I ordered the 2gb GTX770 due to budget limitations. If I don't get good results I will upgrade it later.

I know for a fact that it would run FSX (assuming that I decide to reinstall this) with ease, since I was previously using a 1GB GeForce GTX 560Ti with maximum detail settings, decent levels of AA and AF, and complex scenery addons. P3D will almost certainly be more of a challenge, but I still reckon that it will be fine if I don't get stupidly over ambitious with LOD radius and shadows.
