post #1 of 4
Thread Starter

I have 2 1gb cards and they handle everything just fine at 1080.

A majority of games no, the only time you will see a difference is if you are for some reason memory limited (i.e. you have all settings maxed, AA maxed, etc.) - that being said, for future reasons its always good to get the 2GB version as A. it may be hard to find a 2nd 1GB in the future if you decide to go CF B. Games may eat up even more vram in the near future.

I'd go for 2gb, 1gb will hold you back in alot of games.
