Off hand, I could probably only name 5 or so games that use more than 2GB: BF3, War Thunder, Fallout 3/NV/Skyrim with tons of mods.
None of those games i play

It would be far easier to keep the EVGA backplates and buy EVGA cards but if the Asus cards are so much better i would be willing to pay up

Bottom line i have no clue what to do now damm that PC shop

It's not so much EVGA vs ASUS as 2GB vs 4GB. If EVGA had 4GB versions I think the backplate situation would be less of an issue.

As that isn't the case however, and seeing as you don't play any of the VRAM hogging games, I think you will be fine with the 2GB EVGA cards.

Ultimately, with 2GB if you do ever run into a game that uses more than 2GB of VRAM, the easy solution is to lower texture quality, AA, or SSAO.

If you are OK with that, I think you will be OK with the EVGA cards. thumb.gif

I think the key here is that buying 4gb provides some headroom for the next couple years. Whereas a year ago no games really surpassed 2gb, I see it now quite often. A year from now I wouldn't be surprised if most blockbuster games require >2gb.

that is if you even see yourself sticking with a current gen card for next couple of years. get the 4gb. chances are you belong to this forum, we don't stick with hardware for very long.... lol
post #3345 of 6172
Alright here is what i will do its 20,5$ US more for a 4 GB Asus card so i am going with that but i am going to keep my Asus 2 GB card untill i have sold it and might take a few weeks for that

So i will be running a 2 GB Asus CU II triple slot card and a 4 GB Asus CU II dual slot card then i will sell the 2 GB triple slot card and buy a second 4 GB dual slot card so i have 2x 4 GB dual slot cards

The EVGA backplates are going back so will get a refund for those

Its 41$ more in total for 2x 4 GB cards Vs 2x 2 GB cards and i can live with paying 41$

I am going to keep them for at least until summer 2014 so think 2x 4 GB cards in SLI are better

Thanks to everyone who helped

Last yes i know the 4 GB card will run as a 2 GB card when its run together with the old 2 GB card

i notice at times in Bioshock Infinite, both cards run 2gb+. is that right, or does precision x just show total vram usage on both cards?
