Hey 1440p experts!

My Crossover is on the way, super excited!

Anyway, I'm looking at my VRAM situation. I'm starting to get a bit worried, I don't think I put enough thought into the new build. I just upgraded everything except the video card in anticipation of GW2. Unfortunately I got the 580 as soon as it came out, 1.5GB was the only option at the time.

Anyway, I would really like to keep one of my 1080p monitors on the side as an auxiliary monitor and game on the 1440p. I really want to max out GW2, not being able to because of a VRAM ceiling would be really silly.

So what do you think guys? Am I doomed with my 1.5GB? :'(

I'm not familiar with GW2, however 1.5 GB should be quite enough for 1x 1440 p screen if you get any issues then drag down the AA levels a bit as you probably will not need x16 at that resolution anyway. With some compromises 1 GB is okish to up to about 6 megapixels while a single 1440p is only about 3.6 megapixels and you have altogehter 1.5 GB.

Thanks that does make me feel better. Do you know how much I lose by having the one 1080p monitor at the side?

Not quite sure myself, on Skyrim I do get up to 2020mb usage on my 670s, and sleeping dogs hits 1300mb~, crysis 2 is up there, all run smooth as butter maxed with AA but I could see using more than 2gb in a year or so

Oh, that's no good. :'(
I couldn't even run Skyrim? Ouch. Maybe I'll need to upgrade after all.

I added all the folks in the last 4 days to the list. Sorry I was away and busy.

 

If you are still not on the list please tell so.

 

One last thing, I will be collecting all the Heaven benchmark info on the 2nd post of this thread, so people can have ideas of various GPU performances on 1440p. Game performance should probably be different than heaven benchmark, but it should still give an idea.

 

Please post screenshots of your scores, so I can attach that screenshotas as well. 

 

It would also be great if we are all using the same setups in Heaven, so we can compare GPU performances better.

 

The Official Top 30 Heaven benchmark scores in this thread uses the following setup. Let's just change the resolutuon to 1440p. 1600p guys can run their benchs in 1600p, I will insert their scores under 1440p

 

Render: Direct X 11
Mode: 1680x1050 fullscreen
Shaders: high
Textures: high
Filter: trilinear
Anisotropy: 16x
Occlusion: enabled
Refraction: enabled
Volumetric: enabled
Anti-Aliasing: 8x
Tessellation: extreme

 

I realized that the above options are not available for Basic edition, so let us go with

 

 

API : Directx11

Tesselation : Extreme

Shaders : High

Anisotropy : 16x

Anti-Aliasing : 8x

Resolutioun 1440p (system)

just keep AA off and you should never run into vram problems on the 580

Thanks for all of the help guys. Will definitely +1 as soon as I get back to my rig.

I need to learn more about this stuff. How much of a quality hit am I going to take with AA completely off? Will I notice that at all? I just don't want to "settle", you know? I built this rig for a reason. If I need to throw a couple 680s in, then so be it.

Just changed that entire thing and decided to go with

Tesselation : Extreme

Shaders : High

Anisotropy : 16x

Anti-Aliasing : 8x

Resolutioun 1440p (system) (1600p for 1600p monitors)

 

Since everyone might not have the pro edition of Heaven Benchmarks.

 

If you guys think we should also post pro results with more options, I can arrange that as well, but for now let's get some benchs with the above specs to compare.

 

I am not a Heaven Benchmark wizard, so please tell me if gathering scores with the basic edition is a bad or good move.

 

Again, I don't have the pro edition, and other people also might not.
