I have the chance of getting another GTX 770 but it's a EVGA GTX 770 I can put a price on it, I'm wondering would I see an improvement in some games with a GTX 770 SLI in 1440p and 1080p and both cards have 2gb of VRAM

VRAM doesn't stack up in SLI, you still have 2 GB of useable RAM. I would go for a newer card if I were you.

New card. 2GB VRAM is not nearly enough these days. Hell 4GB isn't enough anymore. Also SLI is too hit and miss, one strong card is always better/more reliable than two weaker cards.

I know I was stating that but would I see better frame rates or no?

I am used to play 768p30fps on my laptop and I'm fine with lowering the settings and changing the resolution

Depends on what new card you'll buy. But I would say that 2GB isn't enough for AAA gaming anymore.

My rig can max out GTA V execpt the advanced settings so I am willing to turn down some stuff to play games

I was talking about 1080p60. Getting 60 fps is really nice in some games but other games run very well on 30 fps. And having a higher resolution on a laptop is fine in my opinion since the screen is smaller. My laptop only has a 768p screen.

I know but I can live with 30fps on almost all games

It will be a performance boost, I would only do it if the second card cost less than 100 CAD.

 

I recommend getting a second hand 1070, 1060 or 580 from a miner clearing out stock for dit nothing.

Want to custom loop?  Ask me more if you are curious

Yes, another 770 will increase fps in lots of games.  Some games don't work with SLI, or they scale very poorly.  But generally yes, performance will improve with another card.

Definitely go with a new card, I'd suggest something around a 1060 6GB or 1070 if you're looking to stay on the cheaper side of things.

Buy a new card.. i recommend going AMD for a GPU, you at least know it will last with driver updates since GCN is a sort of unified architecture with driver updates.

With a $1500 budget, you can easily fit a 1060 6GB or even 1070 in there.

 

Is the $1500 including stuff such as monitors, speakers, keyboard, mouse, etc..?

the 700 series card now is too old for most games due to the memory limit. Unless its for free, go for a new card.
