Will only drive two displays simultaneously though mind, as opposed to 3.
Well, when it comes to memory configurations, we certainly wouldn't recommend 4GB. That amount of RAM really is overkill for a card costing this little, while the price of the memory pushes it well beyond the £60 mark - if you're spending this amount of money, you'll almost certainly fare better if you lift your ambitions to a proper £65 product, like the Radeon R7 250X.
However, 1GB vs 2GB is a trickier decision. The difference will amount to an extra £3-£5, and you'll probably net a couple of additional frames per game. Most of the time, you won't be making much use of the extra RAM, but for what little extra it costs to buy, we would recommend the 2GB version.
Of far more importance, though, will be the memory bus and core clock speed. Most of the GT 730s now come with a 64bit memory interface. Originally, it was thought that the 1GB versions would carry a 128bit bus, while the 2GB cards would have only a 64bit bus. As it turns out though, most 730 card manufacturers have decided to use the 64bit interface, regardless of whether there's 1GB or 2GB onboard. In our opinion, that's a mistake, as the narrow 64bit bus really does keep a lid on overall performance. So here we're covering the MSI GeForce GT 730 2048MB. This isn't as easy to find as the 730 with a 64bit memory bus, but it'll produce superior performance for a little extra.
