Naw, not when you consider that *generally* you have to go about 15-20% over the vram allotment on your card before you actually start losing performance to any appreciable degree. Even at 1.8GB 'usage' you still have plenty of headroom on a 2GB card. And heavily modded Skyrim is about as much vram as you can possibly use nowadays.

My guess is when all is said and done, none of the 4GB cards will have any actual utility vs the 2GB cards unless you have (at least) two of them and are running 3 huge monitors.
