I have yet to hit that wall with 1.5gb. AA on 1080p is much more vram hungry than the extra pixels with much less reduced AA on 1440p. I regularly see the usage kiss 1.47GB, but I have seen zero stuttering of any sort.
AND even my lowly 590 can hold 85fps in most titles at ultra with 2x MSAA. If you want to game on 2 or 3 monitors though, the vram will be an issue. But for a single 1440p, 2gb is fine. People also forget that the cards video ram likes
to fill up in case it needs to access that data again. It is in the drivers nature to keep that buffer as full as possible.
