When you run out of VRAM, you get stuttering (where your FPS is 0). System RAM will be used as VRAM if you max out what's on the card so a user with 8+ GB system RAM will rarely see it, but drop the amount of shared RAM and it'll hit you really hard.

Why you think i sold my 4x GTX680's? Nvidia just insulted me this generation with their stupid boost clocks and energy efficiency, locked voltages etc.

BF3, Borderlands 2, Crysis 2 (surely Crysis 3) and MUCH more games I'm pretty sure the crossfirex utilization is much better than SLI

Unfortunately, AMD are doing better across the board now.

I am planning switch my GTX680s (4GB) to Asus Matrix 7970s, because I cannot max my GPU utilization in Battlefield 3. My CPU is 3770k @ 5.1GHz so I can’t believe it is bottlenecking. It must be Nvidia drivers?
