True, but I like to record. And it puts a damper on fps, anything below 60fps is unacceptable for me...and the eye candy of Low-High isn't enough to make me switch if I have to take a fps hit to the point where it drops below 60fps.....btw don't you never leave the Car Audio thread? tongue.gif jk

Look at the 1st message on this thread. The Korean displays are really popular. Especially the Yamakasi Catleap.

- 2Gb of vram is more then perfect for any SINGLE 1440p/1600p monitor and will run with zero hiccups
- 1GB/1.5GB of vram is good enough to run 1440p/1600p easily, BUT there are the exception of a few games when AA is turned on you will run into a vram cap, so if no AA is on you will run 1440p/1660p fine
**AA is not needed for 1440p/1600p because of the amount of pixels, AA is needed at 1080p**
- Ok now the touchy subject MODS, i am someone who does not care for mods, so all of the above are true and apply to me. for those who decided they like running excessive texture mods in games like skyrim for example, 2GB of vram will get you by with a few decent texture mods on 1440p, not 100% sure about 1600p. for those wanting to run excessive amount of texture mods purchase a 3GB/4GB card and you will have no issue with hitting the vram cap. users using 1GB/1.5GB of vram dont really recommend running texture mods because your will hit the vram cap fairly easily.
- Lastly for those running under 1GB of vram you will be able to run the 1440p/1600p monitors and even game on them as long as ANY texture/shader settings are turned down to low/med settings.
@iARDAs please sticky this, im tired of seeing countless questions on weather the "X" amount of vram will run 1440p/1600p screens.. now they have there answers thumb.gif

I will arrange this information and will put it on the 1st post. I dont know much about vram usage myself as I am learning it from people such as yourself, but I can also tell you this although I agree that AA, especially MSAA is not needed in 1440p and I agree that the impact is minimum, i still notice a bit of a difference when AA is enabled in BF3. The difference is not black and white. More like white and gray biggrin.gif ... So again when higher MSAA levels are in play, i still believe that (not stating a fact) higher Vram could be beneficial. Hence the reason why my vram usage spiked to 2212 on 4Xmsaa in BF3. But do we need 4xMsaa in BF3? Absolutely not. Although I can see a difference between no AA and 2xMSAA in BF3 on 1440p, i can not see a single difference between 2Xmsaa and 4Xmsaa... But when I SLI my system, i will have 2 Zotac GTX 670 4GB, and than I will play BF3 on ultra with 4Xmsaa.

 

You are also right about the mods. Not only on skyrim, but I also beleive that Crysis2's DX11 patch and High Res Texture pack from Crytek can be considered as official mods. When I isntalled both on Crysis 2, my vram usage spiked around 2300. However the game stuck on 35ish fps and made it unplayable on a single 670. Hence, no reason to play the game with such modes when you dont have enough juice.

 

I do 100% agree that people with 2GB GPUs can game in 1440p comfortably for the next 2 years. 1.5GB is also good enough, but games like Battlefield 3 may not be as smooth unless some options are lowered. 90% of the games I own in my library (around 100 games) use around 1000-1300 MB of vram on 1440p.

Added :) Let us know when you purchase your new gear and more monitors.

...but that is for a 570, on ultra, with 1600 (a few more pixels...blah).
Just wondering.
Probably not going to upgrade, but if its anything more than 70fps, I might sooner rather than later. Might also just 'Step Up' (EVGA) to a 660ti. But I also need new fans...a better SSD...blah...blah...blah...just pondering the idea. Thanks

I believe those tests were done with older drivers. Nvidia now has better drivers for BF3. I am sure you will still enjoy BF3 in 1440p.

I'm shocked to see not a single member of this club running a GTX 580. I see cards below the 580 though. Is this just wierd luck or is there some issue with the 580 gaming at 1440?

Weird luck my friend :)

 

There is nothing wrong with 580 and 1440p.

 

In fact it is better than maybe half of the GPUs here in the club.

Thx for the reply. I posted this in another forum on OC but haven't had any replies yet... so I'll ask here: I mainly play Skyrim now and am thinking of getting a 1440p monitor for my sig rig. Any idea what kind of FPS I'd see on ultra settings with no mods?

Well i believe you can maintain 60fps with a 580.

 

There could be dips to low 50s or high 40s in intense scenes but it would be expected and acceptable.

 

Even with my 670 I can not maintain constant 60fps at the highest settings.

 

In short, you will be fine in Skyrim.

 

Could hit issues if you use tons of mods since you have 1.5gb Vram.

 

Anyway, you should go for a 1440p display.

 

 

Edit :

 

Here is a benchmark for Skyrim by anandtech

 

 

Know that 1440p will yield few more fps than 1600p

 

580 is = or close to the performance of 660ti as far as I know.

 

Even a non Oced 570 can maintain 43.8 fps in skyrim on ultra at 1600p

 

So a 580 is good to go.

I had 2x EVGA GTX580 1.5GB in SLI and then added a 3rd one for 3-Way SLI.

While it had enough power for any game at 2560x1440, the vram simply wasn't enough for games like Battlefield 3 where I wanted to use some MSAA. That's why I moved to my GTX680 SLI, 2GB is plenty to me to even use MSAAx4 on Battlefield 3. biggrin.gif

Else I would still be on those GTX580's, they're still amazing cards.

Same. Went from 580 to 680 just because of 1.5GB VRAM. The 580 had plenty of horsepower, but that doesn't mean much when it hits the memory ceiling. I actually opted for a 4GB 680 card-- not going to worry about that anymore. tongue.gif

I have tossed around the idea of upgrading to a 680 but to get the 4GB version, after I sold my 580, I'd have to drop like $250 to get one and I just don't feel like I would get $250 worth of benefits. But I feel that going from an old 24" LCD to one of the new IPS monitors would def be worth the $300 or so.

Any general info as to the types of games that require a lot of VRAM? I play Skyrim and Arkham City now but will be looking for some new games shortly. I tend to play RPGs mostly... looking forward to the new XCOM. Might try Borderlands 2 etc. I don't play many FPS except for the more adventure based ones like Fallout.
