The problem is that the 5xxx series are terrible at DX11 tessellation and if you want the full BG3 experience I recommend buying an up to date card. AMD has got the 6xxx series about 30-40 percent better at tessellation and nVidia is doing a great job too on the 5xx series. I say find what fits your budget and buy a newer card. Also 2GB of vRAM is going to be used at the higher settings (I think my usage was something like 1.2-1.3GB in the beta with everything maxed out except only 4x AA as I can't tell the difference with any more on).

If you are on a budget I would highly recommend buying a 6950 with a cool stock cooler and just bumping it up to 6970 speeds which pretty much every single one can do. I have built 3 systems so far with 2GB 6950's running @ 6970 speed and they are all rock solid.

Sapphire Dirt3 edition is great as well as the Asus Direct CU edition. Both have really good coolers.
