So it doesn't run 1 game at max. Is that really worth hundreds just so you can get an incredibly marginal increase in graphics for one game, or is it more about just knowing you're maxing it out than the actual graphical improvement? IMO, you should hold off buying ANY gpu for a particular game until it has actually been released.

Btw, you should probably change the title of this thread to something closer, like ' best gpu to max BF3 @ 1080p'.

I know. its just about knowing that i am maxing the card out and this thread has nothing to do with bf3 i was using battle field 3 beta and metro 2033 as and example of how i am hitting the vram cap.

This is just a waste of money lol....but if you really need more memory upgrade to a single 570/6970 they have 2gb models I believe the 570 even has 2.5gb model.

Couldn't agree more.

Hitting the VRAM cap is not the same as exceeding your VRAM limitations - the difference is immense.

Being at or around the cap will perhaps give you slight stutters here and there. Constantly exceeding it, will leave the game unplayable as soon as you are loaded in. We're talking about framerates that are bottoming out at zero, for the most part, where it takes a long while even to exit the game and fix your settings. THAT would be significant limitation right there.

I had a mix of both playing BF3's beta w/ Ultra settings on Metro in the upper part of the subway. At first it was glorious! Looked just like the trailer! NO JAGGIES! Then the 1st hitch came, then it was ok...no...that's not right...aarragh...what is going on...3.3FPS, clunk, clunk...POOF!
