Default Re: 2gb or 4gb gtx 770?

I look at your price difference, if you didn't already have the gpu cooler for it, I'd be pushing for asking for the gtx 770. 25 pounds or euro's would make a difference in terms of quality. Yes, the r9 290 is fast. The problem that amd is getting shown is that they sent out different review models to reviewers vs. the retail product. Also, the regular clock speed for that card is 663mhz with a gpu boost going up to 947mhz. Another problem being shown is the gpu boost clock variance in different brands. Meaning none of them are peaking or staying near the 947mhz promised. I understand the monitor bit, LaCie is the cadillac of pc products they sell.
