Ah it is okay, I'm not so sure about the 4 GB vs 2 GB thing gues it will make a big difference then on triple monitor, the topic owner knows a lot about it so I'm not involved.

HF with your 4 GB thumb.gif

they do make water blocks for the 4gb cards...several companys have em...hell most of the water blocks work on 2gb and 4gb versions....check out performance-pcs.com
they have a good selection.

expensive, but better then getting the evga hydro edition

What I was saying is that right now 2GB will do alright, but if you plan to SLI in the future, 2GB will be pointless. Sorry, I should have clarified that a little better. But I didn't think about the buffer, maybe I am wrong.

Not sure if this source is reliable but it may be usefull:

http://alienbabeltech.com/main/gtx-770-4gb-vs-2gb-tested/

The question for me is: Is it worth the money to upgrade a 2 GB to a 4 GB version, if you allready have a 2 GB version?

no, 2gb right now isnt even alright for him...he is using triple monitor...BF4 with triple monitor uses almost 3gb of VRAM...3gb>2gb= 2gb is not enough!

2Gb is enough if he, or anyone, is only using one 1080p monitor...but thats it

and even then...todays games are almost 2gb on one monitor alone...so when more taxing games hit, then 2gb on one monitor wont even be enough.

honestly anyone who gets a 2gb video card is just ignorant because they are setting them selfs up for failure...i wish they would just take them off the damn market lol

it is 110% worth it!!!! under stand this

HE USES THREE MONITORS!!!!!!!!!!! WHICH MEANS HE NEEEEEEEEEEEEEDS MORE THAN 2GB of VRAM!

If you would read even your own link...they are saying 2gb is fine for ONE 1080p Monitor!!! he is doing 3 monitors which is a lot higher resolution which means he needs more than 2gb of VRAM.

this is the last time i will spell that out for you before i hunt you down and slap you for not reading or understanding wink.gif

The issue is that the people trolling youtube comments swear that 2gb is plenty. Misinformation is killing the gpu market in my opinion. It's a shame that 2gb isn't cutting it though, because the 2gb 770's are dirt cheap right now. I'm half tempted to get one for a lan party rig.

See i don't understand why i just couldn't use the water block off my 2gb superclocked EVGA card to the 4gb EVGA card same design it seems.

2GB i am using - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130921

4GB i want to get - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130945

waterblock i am using now - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/20695/ex-blc-1483/EK_Geforce_GTX_770_VGA_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Nickel_EK-FC770_GTX_-_Nickel.html?id=jIFeHLQ4&mv_pc=161

2gb does cut it its plenty for 1 monitor surround is where your looking at higher vram multi card situations. 4 gb vs 2 gb in a single monitor no difference 2gb vs 4 gb multi monitor yes they will have the same speeds but allow for more settings and the gpus need to process more pixels need more vram along with gpu power.

Lets take cod ghost for example I have 3gb of vram my buddy has two same settings he shows almost maxed vram as do I. Why you may ask cod ghost artificially uses vram don't know if they fixed that yet but it does. A lot of games allocate a percentage of vram as a buffer to have in case it needs it and its usually based on a percentage of the vram available and trust me you would know if you was hitting the vram wall you would stutter like crazy.
