In two years, if games are demanding enough to need more than 2GB of VRAM, you'd be wanting a new card anyway.

Crysis 3 destroys single 680's & 7970. Something to think about (based on alpha).

Theres a thread somewhere about how much Vram it uses.

Id say 670 also. thumb.gif

So you'd go with the 2GB or 4GB + backplate model then?

im not sure , i will try to find that thread in a sec.

The 680 was only getting like 35 FPs though.

Id get the 4gb for the overkill. This is overclock.net after all.

True that, but I'm quite positive that this is due to poor optimization. My sig rig was getting 30-40 fps.

Perhaps if we don't expect any games other than the Crysis series (which don't look fun at all) to use more than 2GB of VRAM on a single 1080p monitor, I should get a GTX 680 like this one?
