Haven't noticed ... I know BL2 doesn't even hardly touch the RAM compared to Skyrim ... way I see it, at 1440p, the more VRAM the better. That's one of the only things I like about the Titan cards is the 6GB of VRAM ... but I"m still not going to upgrade from dual 670's till 2014 some time.

I feel like crying then shot myself in the knee after some wall head banging. I just bought the new Dell 27 1440P and was about to buy the a second GTX 680...until I read 2gb not so much with 1440P. I built my system not two months ago and now my beloved Gtx 680 SOC is going to fail me frown.gif

Sigh I lost all the excitement as soon as I read how much VRAM new games are using at 1440P. I guess I will just have to live with my current GTX 680 for a while until I can afford a Titan.

It will play just fine; I wouldn't sweat it. Get a second 680 and you'll be golden. Hell, I had a good time playing with a GTX580 @ 1440p .. just had to go med settings on everything and no AA ... a single 2GB 680 will play the heck ouf of 1440p. EVen better with two ...

Also, as I understand it, in SLI ... even if ou have two 4GB cards, you still only use 4GB and not 8GB (is this not correct?) ... so what would happen if you got a 4GB 680 and ran it next two your 2GB? Would games use the card with less VRAM or the one with more VRAM>?

That's correct. 4GB does not increase performance, it is just that when a game needs more than 2Gb and I only got 2Gb my FPS will debunk to hell regardless if I have SLI or 100 way SLI.

you have nothing to worry about. 4gb won't give you more fps. and the 6 series don't have memory bandwidth to even take advantage of 4gb. Raw gpu power > vram. Unless you are doing 1440p surround or insane texture mods. 2gb is fine! Alot of those benchmarks you see are with crazy amounts of AA you don't even need at 1440p because of higher resolution. You can run less AA with 1440p and save vram thumb.gif

So AA and MSAA are not that good at high res? should I just get a second GTX 680 then? Or should I wait a month or 2 until I get enough money for Titan?
