What's the main difference between the 4GB gtx 770 and the 2GB version. How differently will they run and is the extra money worth it?

What's a good monitor to run for a gtx770 build w/ i5 processor?

Will I need a PSU larger than 500W for my current build.(planning on ordering it tonight)

4Gb definitely isn't worth it unless your split screen gaming over 4 monitors. And it would be wise to go with a 600 watt PSU just to be safe

to expand on /u/idontknowhatimdoing2's response, unless you're going to be gaming at higher resolutions than 1080p or using 3+1080p monitors to get one wide image, the extra 2 GB isn't going to do much for you at all. Also, if you're planning on 1440p or 4K gaming, you're generally going to want a 780 or better, so to put more GB of GDDR5 on the 770 is kind of silly.
