I've read a lot of articles that say getting a 4gb is useless unless you have extra screens or something the GPU doesn't work fast enough to use 4gb in real time, it's bus' just aren't that fast, you're better off with 8gb ddr3 and 2gb on the gpu

This is mainly true but a lot more games are using that extra VRAM. 3 GB should be what you shoot for now if you can. I shelled out an extra $20 for the 4GB 270x cause whatever man, it's $20.

doing that with a 780 would require another 100 bucks...
