I think you should just pony up the extra few $$ for a 4gb, especially if you plan to do anything past 1080p.

Here is a good link from the beta -

The extra 50 bucks is better suited to getting a very good 2gb 680/770 than some reference model 4gb 680/770.

Higher clocking 680s with optional cooling will benefit you more than a hot running crappy OCing reference model 680 4gb.

I'd suggest the MSI Lightning. Solid cooling and we'll known for consistently cracking the 1300-1350mhz clock speeds here on this forum.

Just sent back my 770 and getting a 280x, I went with the windforce x3 4gb model. At 1200p, testing all the big hitter games - metro LL, crysis 3, witcher 2 with ubersampling, BF4 beta etc etc I only ever seen it go above 2gb of vram twice, and with that I was on about 40-50 frames anyway because the card at those settings can't maintain the frames/fps power to actually keep up with the vram if you get me.

So 4gb on a single gtx 770 is pointless, unless you are getting two for sli where you will actually have the power to be using msaa x8 etc. I do get why you want to stay with nvidia, though I feel 3gb is the sweet spot atm. I don't have the budget for a 780 though, so its 280x for me.

You will be fine with a 770, there is some games I struggled maintaining 60fps. I had it oced at 1305 after boosting, and +275 on the memory. I would get about 50 fps on average in crysis 3 with every setting at ultra/max and msaa x2 or w/e you call it smaa?

Also don't go with the lightning, most 770's oc about the same with there limit being about 1300 with some extremes of nearing 1400. Though its all just your luck, and since most of them have great coolers and most of them are hitting about the same, while being voltage locked there is not much reason to get the lightning.

EVGA has the ACX cooler and performs better than the lightning, at least according to anandtech. They also favor EVGA's OC utility, and its hard to argue that EVGA doesn't have the best/on par with the best customer service. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
That being said I kinda wish I waited the extra 2 months for these AMD cards to come out. First, they should bring the price of the card I bought down - I'm a bit partial to Nvidia. But between the price difference/performance of the new AMD cards and the Possibility (lots of unfulfilled promises from the tech industry) that Mantle really changes the graphics card industry amd is looking good right now.
