A valid point. Regardless you load Skyrim down with too much and it will just crash half the time mid fun anyway. I would not worry OP if you find you need the second card buy it then.

I'm not understanding what you're saying. When the frame buffer runs out things stop running as smoothly. Today's games (especially modded games) need a lot of VRAM. That's all I'm getting at.

For 2560 x 1440 gaming with all the eye candy, 3GB is the minimum I would recommend.

allocation =/= usage. Assassins creed Black Flag uses 4-5.5gb of vram on my titans. How much would you like to bet some one with 780ti's can run the exact same settings w/ the exact same level of performance?

How can I mount a radiator outside the case and have it stable and look decent? Also concerned about how I would run the tubing to the radiator outside the case, although the case does have 2 decent size cable exit ports in the back.


First what case do you have and here is some brackets that would help to mount the rad on the back of the case. click on the picture and you will see an example.

What I'm saying is that what Afterburner tells you isn't an accurate representation of how much memory you need. Just because BF4 has filled 2.8GB of the available space doesn't mean it has to in order to run smoothly. Not to mention, mods are such a silly thing to concern over. Skyrim is the only game that actually has mods capable of pushing VRAM usage over 2GB. And the reason is that the game is a pile of garbage. It says nothing about the future requirements of games.

Interesting. Thanks.

The case is ANTEC 1100

Those are fair points. Nevertheless, I've had cards with 1GB or 2GB of VRAM. No bueno for hi-res gaming.

As far as future requirements, I think that we all know that they will increase not decrease. Otherwise we'd all have the same CPUs and GPUs we had back in the year 2000.

What would cause power limit to be stuck at 70%??; it seems on stock bios power limit goes to 110; but on this bios; its stuck at 63-71%.
