GPU help for 1440p monitor? (First Build)

Someone told me to never game on a 1440p monitor without using SLI config. Is this true? I can't afford SLI and am more of a casual gamer. I'm set on the nvidia 770 gtx, but would it be better to get the 4gb version instead of 2gb for 1440p (or is 2gb workable?-I heard with 256-bit limitations of this GPU it can't take full advantage of 4gb anyway) I mostly want newer games to run reasonably well on this build and GPU on 1440p medium-high settings
