Hi,

I was planning on buying a MSI Twin Frozr GTX 770 with 4GB for $400 but a new deal came up on newegg for a PNY GTX 770 with 2GB for only $309, $289 after rebate.

My question is, is it worth it to pay the extra $100ish dollars for 2GB more of memory?

Also is the PNY brand any good?

No. No
What would you do? Would you taint your hands with evil to destroy evil? Or would you carry out your own justice and succumb to that evil?

Get the 2 gb unless you plan to SLI with another. PNY is pretty decent.

what resolution are you running 1080p? then 2Gb is fine. Very very few games demand more than that.
i5 2500k 4.5GHZ OC, 32GB DDR3, PNY GTX 780TI SLI, MSI P67A-GD55 Mobo, 128GB SSD, Barracuda Green 1.5TB HDD updating to i7 shortly

I'm fairly new to PC gaming so I just want to make sure I am getting a card that can run at max settings with 40+ fps on newer games like BF4, Watch Dogs etc.

Well it isn't bad, but you should always buy from the more reputable brands

Not worth the $100. If you're gonna spend $400 and want a 4 GB card you might as well get an R9 290.

That one out performs the gtx 770 correct? I heard there were maybe some heating issues with the 290s though, that true?

They just run hotter than the 770s. Look at some benchmarks
