Ok, my current build needs desperately 2 additional upgrades: hard drives and a video card.. The hard drive upgrade is easy.. Going to go with an SSD (preferably an Intel DC 3500 300GB) + a 4TB SATAIII drive for storage. The GTX 260 (stop laughing!) has got to go, I know I know -- but I'm kinda confused on what exactly to buy.
If I had it my way I'd get a GTX 780 and think nothing of it.. But I refuse to pay $700 for a GPU. I don't play games on even a remotely occaisional basis, but I am a graphic artist, so I constantly have at least one instance of Photoshop and/or Illustrator up at all times. I also am heavily involved in video recording of local bands and 3D rendering in various capacities.. So my question is this, I want a card that will last a good while (3-5 years) without becoming completely obsolete, while having enough processing power so I can throw anything and everything at it. Naturally the GTX 7xx series is the way I want to go.. But I can't decide between a 760 4GB against a 770 2GB. Can someone explain to me what exactly the differences in memory would effect the most? And possibly make a suggestion (you can try to convince me to get something other than an EVGA card, but I'm pretty sold on going with them for the new card) on which card to get?
Thanks so much guys, and its good to be back!
