Can a 7970 utilise it's 3GB VRAM well? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
So from what i can gather you could be shooting yourself in the foot if you're a serious gamer and not going for 3GB+ ?

I defiantly think it'll be worth investing in 3gb+. As games are slowly getting more demanding.

2140MB.


That's why it's nice to have a card with 3 or 4 GB VRAM. Loads of people said that 2 Gb is enough, but if you buy a new or used card these days it's nice to know that the amount of VRAM isn't going to bottleneck you soon in the latest/new games.

I bought a used asus GTX670, went for that particular card because the seller lived near me, went to pick it up myself (no shipping costs). Now i'm extra pleased it was a 4Gb version

true. i read even the 760 4GB owners are benefiting with their choice.
