Would 2GB of memory graphics be okay to run future games?

GTX 770 2GB or 4GB for a 1680x1050 22'' moniter?

It cost an extra $$ for a 4GB, dont want to spend that much if it would be usuable.

Thanks

The 2GB 770 would do the job very nicely, 4GB would always be a bonus obvcourse and would mainly help at higher res or a multi monitor setup

its more than enough at your current resolution.

I have a gtx770 2gb, I have 2 monitors running off it and it can easily max out any game I play on it.

a 770 will also happily play games at 1440p.

Just a point here. Buy the best you can afford without going overboard. One thing is absolutely certain in the PC world. One day something will come along and the system you have will not be able to run it well, be it a game, new OS or program.
