Should I get the 2gb or 4gb gtx 760? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I think if your going to go sli it would be worth the extra money to go 4gb. Just because it can't use all 4gb doesn't mean it won't use 2.5Gb or up to 3gb possibly on a single 1440p monitor with everything maxed out. At 1440p, as others have mentioned, you probably won't need AA. AA is what drives the memory usage up, but if it were me with the newer games coming out this fall/winter I would go for the 4gb cards. It would really suck if you run into issues within a couple months of your purchase only to have to sell your cards for ones with more memory to get the best experience possible with your high res monitor.

4gb SLI for 1440p is fine, and you don't need AA

4gb only if you're going to sli later as it would make sense in a MAX performance kinda way. if not 2gb since 2gb works for basically everything and will possibly continue to do so until 2015? Just a random guess.

EDIT: could you wait until GTA V comes out for benchmarks? if theres a difference in 2-4gb, then get a 4gb
