    Which GPU should I go for with editing in Adobe CC in mind? Adobe CC has Mercury Playback Engine to speed up previewing and rendering with CUDA. Dubiously, the 770 would be the easy choice if I was just looking for more CUDA. But, the 760 has more VRAM. Which one should I get? The price difference is only about $30.

    Please note that I edit 4k footage from a Panasonic GH4. I don't have a 4k monitor but the footage is still 4k.

    I think the 770 2GB is the way to go. I am not sure about editing specifically but from the reviews I have seen GK104 isn't fast enough to take advantage of a full 4GB.

    You could do a 770 4GB I guess?

    7704GB is out of budget

    I'd think you'd lose less by giving up the extra 2GB of VRAM on the 770. On the 760 you lose around 30% of your computing performance.
     
    Vario says thanks.

    What is your budget? This GTX 770 4GB is about the same price as many of the 2GB models.

    I just can't see buying an upper-mid level video card with less than 3GB of memory these days (4GB preferable). I know nothing about your editing chores, but there are finally some games that are pushing past the 2GB barrier even at 1080p.

    GTX 770 2gb, I always go for the upper GPU in most situations.

    770 2gb. 4gb 760 has no benefits over the original 2gb variant, unless running multi gpu.
