thanks. i followed the entire thread, which is btw, a year old and from what i gathered that there is a likelyhood of sudden slow down when you hit the vram wall. but the accuracy of the tools provided is still in question.

i did use AB to measure vram usage on my 7970 while playing BF3 MP 64 at 1080 maxed with 4msaa and it registered over 2GB. i do not believe, though, that this scenario will limit even 1GB gpus in playing the next generation games. it will be just a matter of adjusting the various settings such as AA.

op, the beauty of the 760 is its affordability and out-of-the-box power. it will play the next generation of games at even higher than 1080 resolution for sure. no need for more than 2GB with the right settings.

so running one of the most demanding games at max settings made you hit the vram wall. color me surprised. 7970 can push more pixels, also has a larger 3gb buffer.
the sweet spot for the 760 is 1080p, at 1440p it really starts to struggle.
have you tried running gta 4 with ice enhancer all settings maxed?

yes, the 7970 has 3GB and i never experienced any slow down as decribed by brettjv in that thread. like i said, AB may not be accurately measuring vram usage, so the only way to find out really if you hit that vram wall is a drop in fps. it did say my gpu reached over 2GB in BF3 but since i have more than that, then i really do not have a way of knowing exactly. i just hope BF4 will use less than 3GB using just 1080 but even if it does . . . i can always adjust my settings or other cards with less than 3GB, for that matter.
