2gb is more than enough until it would be time to upgrade anyways a generation or 2 later. unless your the person who goes balls to the wall with texture mods, but still any game now and within next year 2gb is fine at our res.

It's more about the speed of the gpu but people love to get hung up and stuck on this memory topic since graphics cards started having more than 512mb-1gb. Now that we have such large size people are like "zomg I need moars! even knowing bf3 is the only game that eats up memory at this current time!!!1111"

Thanks for the responses guys. I have had my 690 since June, but the 2GB VRAM thing has always kind of nagged me especially at 2560x1600. I can run every game just fine and haven't run out of memory on it, but it still kind of irritated me. BF3 MP uses about 1.8GB in the new Armored Kill pack. I loaded up Crysis 2 yesterday to refresh my memory on its performance. Everything at Ultra, Hi-res pack etc it got up to 2.2GB. Got about 45-50fps on the 580s.
My 580s are the MSI Lightning Xtreme 3GBs by the way. I originally got the 690 to try and get closer to the 120fps mark on my 120hz monitor, but that was before I got the U3011. Since it's a 60hz panel I don't have that same need, and the 580s seem to do most games at 60fps or pretty close. So I'm considering letting the 690 go while I can still get a nice amount back for it. I love the card and the craftsmanship of it though so that's why it's kind of a tough call for me.

I think you should get rid of the extremes too me for a swap for my Gigabyte 3gb's I don't think they'll perform any better or quieter but I really wanted them for the fans that glow white and blue as my computer theme for 'Blue Steel' is blue, silver, black, with white lighting tongue.gif
If your not up for that then I honestly think the Extremes are the cards you want.

I agree with you on speed & power and also agree 2GB is plenty enough for single 1440p/1600p gaming, but it depends on what you do, if you play skyrim and download mods it's shown us that 2GB isn't all that much. If I play Skyrim on vanilla at 1440p it takes just over 1gb of VRAM if I play it with my 4k mod packs, ENB's & countless other mods it runs at 2.8GB VRAM most of the time. Lite packs of most mods have had too be made for those with 2GB or less cards. So although it's not essential now, it is important and will be more so in the future, so it's worth thinking about is my point. Now that 3/4/6gb cards are on the market developers will use this too make higher res textures standard in game too use up the resources available too them.

Some more benches:

3D Mark 11 no OC


3D Mark 11 900core modest OC. (I wont overclock further as my cards I won't have my cards run hotter than 70 degrees or the fans go above 70% although I think 990core was the most I could hit stably.


No OC


900core OC
