I am in the market for a new card and was just wondering what you all think? What is the big difference from 2gb to 4gb honestly? I can get one or the other for a pretty dang good price.
1. Let me know which one you would get.
2. Explain why.

If you care much about overclocking, then grab the FTW will be a better choice, because the card uses 680 PCB on it....and the card is one of the best 670 for overclocking...

The 2GB FTW is one of, if not the best overall 670 out there. They have a fantastic record for Overclocking, the 680 PCB +cooler means that you are not crippledsshould you go for aftermarket cooling, and I have never seen the 4GB cards show any advantage over the 2GB ones outside of the margin of error, in factthehigher mememory cards seem to be worse for Overclocking.

The issue with Kepler is the memory bus, not the amount, and you will see significant gains from Overclocking the memory. Since 2x as much memory results in a lower overclock, it's a good idea to get a card that can better overcome it's bottleneck.

EVGA GTX 2Gb FTW / or FTW Signature 2
Gigabyte GTX OC
ASUS GTX Direct CU II
Zotac Amped
MSI Power Edition

These are the top 5 (no particular ranking order) 670's. The site reviews for these cards confirm this

There is no need to waste money on a 680
