[Official] 1440p and Above Gaming Club (1440p+) - Page 288

i think you are just witnessing the difference of 2 680s at 120fps @ 120hz( if you were even maintaining 120fps at all times to even take advantage of 120hz) at 1080p vs. 2 680s at 1440p. @60hz even knowing 2 680s is PLENTY for 1 1440p you can just feel the difference due to the fps difference its self maybe?

also skyrim and it's fps is a mess after mods with 1440p due to insane texture mods running at high resolution with game running at high resolution.

makes you feel any better I went from 120hz monitor to 3x 1440p and don't miss it!

Nice! Man that is a setup! I see that as my natural progression of things haha! I think it was just running them at over 120 or near it. I played on the 1440 some more today and I must be getting used to it because it didnt bother me much. Although i wasnt playing Close Quarters either rolleyes.gif All in all I am really digging it. The picture quality is definitely worth it and even skyrim modded out its running pretty smooth.

So, now about this club...biggrin.gif

I know this has probably been answered before but: does having a 4GB card show any kind of improvement while running a 2560x1440 monitor?Im looking to upgrade my monitor and would need to do the same for my gpu and was wondering if I should get a 2gb or 4gb version of either a 670 or 680.I play combat flight sims mostly( ROF and IL-2 Cliffs of Dover, the latter is quite demanding even on 1920x1200).

single monitor 2gb is fine unless you run crazy texture mods. the cards don't have the raw gpu horsepower and memory bandwidth to utilize 4gb appropriately

Having a 4GB GPU will not give you more FPS in most games, but heavily modded Skyrim and potential future games might be a bottleneck under 2GB.

 

In most cases you are fine with 2GB, but I would advice you to get the 4GB version. It is like 30 bucks more expensive. Not bad at all.

Definitely.

During Skyrim (a fairly heavily modded Skyrim) ... GPU-z reports like 3.9gb of memory utilization.
