Well, I caved and ended up picking up an evga gtx 770 4GB superclocked acx. I figured spending a little more for the next few years was worth it. I'm pumped! Now it just needs to get here... Thanks for the input guys!

Yeah, 1080p would probably not use over 2gb, but its nice to be future proof.
PS: When you use over 2gb of vram, does your average fps decrease, or...? Thanks

the GTX 670/680/760/770 are incapable to utilizing 4GB of VRAM, they are just not strong enough without SLI and sometimes Tri-SLI.

So, if you plan on SLI'ing, You should go a 4gb gaming over a 2gb hawk ($60 more)?

The Bottom Line

This evaluation has concluded that there isn't any advantage, even in the latest games, to using an ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II 4GB video card over a 2GB equivalent for a single-display gaming. We can honestly say now that 2GB is "good enough" even in the latest games like Far Cry 3 and Hitman and Sleeping Dogs for single display gaming on a GeForce GTX 670. The fact is, the performance isn't high enough with a GTX 670 GPU to allow the advantage of 4GB of memory at 1080p or 2560x1600. When we also consider the ability to run NV Surround resolutions off of one video card, the GeForce GTX 670 GPU itself again is not powerful enough to benefit from the 4GB.

Therefore, we can conclude, if you are going to be getting a GeForce GTX 670, and only sticking to single-card, single display gaming, or even NV Surround, 2GB models are the better value. However, next week, we are going to evaluate the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II 4GB using two video cards, with SLI, in NV Surround and see if the extra money for 4GB is worth it in that scenario, so stay tuned.
