      Hey there,
      I've been using EVGA GTX 760 2GB ACX since 1 year and very satisfied with it.
      Now i'm building a new machine and can't decide which card should i get? Don't need over expensive card which doesn't goes with my Intel i7 4th generation mid budget machine lo
      So two cards i'd lined up
      EVGA GTX 760 2GB ACX

      ASUS GTX 670 2GB Direct CU II

          Both are good and have similar performance. Your choice.

            I would suggest the 960GB 4GB card.

              for 1080p as the OP says he will be doing, why spend money on a similar performing gtx 960? will 4gb memory help with 1080p?

                Yes but the 960GTX 4GB card would be future proofing for changes in workflow and GPU acceleration support.

                  coredvideo, do you already own one or both of those cards? if both, you could actually use both together if you have a motherboard that supports multiple video cards (ie 2 gpu's at 8x pcie lanes). premiere supports multiple video cards, and since those are somewhat similar in performance, they should work together ok. that might be overkill for your 1080p projects and as well as demanding for your psu, so it may not be worth bothering with. if you do not have either video card then the gtx 960 4gb eric suggests would be an option, or finding a used older card for cheap. the long standing advice around here has been a 2gb card for 1080p and 4gb for 4k timelines. im not sure if something changed as to why eric now says 4gb for 1080p, but he is one of the top experts.

                      Should I go for GTX 960 just for more ram?

                        The 900 series cards have hdmi 2.0 and support several 4K displays besides the 960GTX having 4GB vram options so overall it's better money spent. 1080 media in Premiere specifically wont use more than 2GB of vram but that is always subject to change. If you change to higher resolution media then you definitely want the 4GB. So overall the 960GTX is a better option for later. If it's completely about budget and the 960GTX is to much then the 760GTX would be an equivalent card. However the 700 series have been out of production so not the best choice.
