I'd truly hate adding onto the grueling conversation of whats the best GPU for Houdini subject, but every subject I have found is mostly about the Quadro's. Which I can't afford. So I decided to look at the 7 series Nvidia cards given that it seems Nvidia has more support overall throughout 3D workflows.

Now, say the average person(me) has a budget under 700 dollars to maintain.
Would it be more logical to get the 780 or the 770 with 4gigs Vram?

when it comes to fluid and particle simulations, does overall speed or the amount of Vram come into play more?

After reading the Houdini system requirements it seems that having more Vram is much better than speed when it comes to OpenCL, but I wanted to get a more updated opinion as well.

Thank you.

I have the 770 with 4gb, but I don't really know if the GPU changes a lot in Houdini than the CPU and the ram… Is it only for the viewport ?
