what is better 4gb 770 or 780?

You mean a 4GB 770 or a 3GB 780 (rather than 4GB on both)? It'd be a rather odd question to ask, otherwise. The extra VRAM on the 770 would only come in handy with higher resolutions, and you'll get more out of the 780's extra power, anyway.

To be honest, SLI in general is overkill if you're only using 1 monitor.

If you really HAVE to SLI... might as well go big or go home... go with the 780.

The 780 is better but whether it's worth the extra money is another story.

780, but if you're SLIing them, make sure to invest in a 1440p or 1600p monitor or you're just sitting there with wasted horsepower

Well, at 1440p or 1600p it's almost double the number of pixels, so it's a lot like two 1080p monitors in terms of the work the card has to do. If you're using one 1080p monitor it is pretty overkill although I can still see two 760s ($480) being really good performance for the money.

You're looking at $900 vs $1300 if you're getting two cards...I personally think the 780 is not a very good value for the money. I'll be going with two 4GB 770s before too long myself.

Technically SLI 760 will beat 780 while still being cheaper. However, one good card is always better than 2 weaker ones.

I didn't even know normal people use that kind of resolution haha

Normal people aren't SLIing top end cards, either
