Which of the 680 should i get?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im going to buy a 680 in a few weeks, but i dunno which i should choose.

Is it the same performance in both the 2gb and 4gb versions?

Cause i want to have the 4gb version cause of skyrim with high res texture packs.

What resolution are you playing and how many monitors? The 4GB will be better but not noticeable unless played at resolutions higher than 1080p or on multiple monitors.

Im going to play on 2x monitor's with 3100x1031 something if i remember right.
But most in 1080p on the main screen with everything hopefully maxed out.

Here is how it looks.

And in the start of this one you can see my setup, cause i use one 16:9 ratio screen and one 5:4 ratio screen so that the aim aint in the middle of those two but more to the left.

Get the 4GB then, you will be able to notice the difference when using both monitors

If you're planning on staying w/a single card, and not significantly increasing your total resolution in the future, I'd get the 2GB card, personally. You are unlikely to see any perf difference with a single 2GB vs a single 4GB at that resolution.
