AMD Radeon RX 470 / Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz

For the most part, the RX 470 is still capable of playing modern games, but you would have to reduce settings to sustain those higher framerates. If keeping graphics quality settings closer to ultra or high is important, there are a few options for upgrades. It appears that the RX 470 is a more capable mid-range card that can play AAA titles at 1080p with 60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 470 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. With current 4096 MB RAM, the RX 470 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 / Core i7-3770K @ 3.50GHz

It is worth noting that the GTX 770 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 2048 MB RAM, the GTX 770 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. This combination between GTX 770 and Intel Core i7-3770K @ 3.50GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. This combination between GTX 770 and Intel Core i7-3770K @ 3.50GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss.

Would upgrading from a gtx 770 2gb to an rx 470 4gb make sense? My main reason for upgrading would be for the 2 extra gigabytes of vram, would such an upgrade make sense? Thank you in advance
