Interesting posts guys.. Was going to just go with the 770 4GB to be safe, but now i've got my doubts.. to clarify i'm not expecting everything to be Ultra settings on the latest and greatest games, and I don't mind running a relatively low AA (but some AA nonetheless).
Thanks all for your advice, everythings considered. I don't have the budget for a 780 or 690 or the SLi/CrossFire setups you have mentioned.. I'm really targetting those who have experience with A) Surround resolutions and B) The actual real world difference between a 760 2gb oc and 770 4gb oc
I also am not interested in waiting for next gen cards or next gen depreciation for various reasons, if they are more than a month away.

Let us know what you have to get more helpful advice.
$500-$600 AUD, USD>AUD is a bit over the place right now, but for your comparison sake - GTX 770 4GB budget would be absolute max.. but I don't want to go spending $600 AUD on a 4GB 770 when a 2GB equivalent may of done marginally worse.. which is what some people are claiming around the net (that 4gb is useless)
Antec 750W (comes with the Nine Hundred Two case.. seems to have plenty of juice
Have looked up GTX690 but the price is out of budget again.Edited by chevZ - 9/19/13 at 7:27am
