Deepsouth1987: Better buy a R9 290(x) or a GTX 780 (ti) if you really want to upgrade
EDIT: A realistic prediction on the 8xx series will be the end of the year, like August or September, not a few months.
Ok...im gonna try not to be mean or be-little you but idk how thats gonna go....see obviously either you did not read what he wrote, or what I wrote, or have no idea what your talking about or maybe its all three so here we go!
The VRAM thing between a 2gb-4gb GTX 770 will make a HUGE ******* DIFFERENCE in this mans application....you see, BF4 on a SINGLE 1920x1080p monitor uses roughly 1.7-1.9gb of VRAM alone with everything set to its highest. This gentleman does not use a single monitor he uses three in nvidia surround, which raises the resolution and thus raises the needed VRAM to play on ultra to around 2.8ish gb... His GPU power alone is more than enough for BF4, hell my two 460's runs BF4 on ULTRA settings i just have to turn off all AA,Post AA and HBAO crap off cause that uses alot of VRAM and I use only one monitor but am limited by my 1gb VRAM...he uses three monitors but is limited by his 2gb VRAM. If he only used one monitor he would have more than enough now, But since he uses three then he needs more VRAM not more GPU power which is why he should sell his 2gb 770 for like 200-225 on ebay and take that and an extra 200 and get a 4gb 770 and save the big upgrade for the 8xx series...
and that leads me to my second rant!!!!...clearly you did not listen to what I said about the 8xx cards!!!! there is already road maps for the gtx 800 mobile gpus out and word is late feb early march when they hit, and it is never far behind that the desktop GPU's come out after the mobile ones...the one question is will the desktop ones be just a 10-15% improvement of our current 7xx cards with the same 28nm die, or will they be the 50%+ improvement NVIDIA claims is possable with the new 20nm dies that the 800 cards are suppose to have...there is no question that we will see 8xx cards of some sort before may-june...only thing is what will they be, a huge improvement with 20nm die chips or just a slight one with old 28nm chips to keep up with AMD and then the 20nm GPUs late this year...
as for the original guy who asked the first question...if you need something to run your triple monitors RIGHT NOW, then get a 770 4gb and save your big upgrade for when ever the 20nm 8xx cards come out, whether its soon or later this year
