well i have a second monitor as it is, this btw is for a new computer i'm building(since my current one is outdated by about 4 years). I'm still deciding whether or not I will continue to use my old monitor as a second monitor or just use my new monitor alone.

As long as you're not trying to game on both at the same time there is no need for the 4gb card. If you use one to browse the web and one to play a game there is no impact on the Vram needed.

4GB is a really bad decision in any case for a GTX 770. You're not going to be able to get any use out of the extra VRAM due to its 256-bit bus.

Neither, get the 780. I did, and I don't regret it.

So, the 4GB has a narrower memory bus than the 2GB? How does that cancel out the extra VRAM, eaxactly?
