Bf4 adding another card or swaping it out.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well bf4 is my main game I'm currently running a single 770 2gb. My question is with the vram usage in this game since I'm picking up a shield and the price is good now. Would i be better adding another 2gb 770 or 4 gb?

There is no point to getting 4Gb version if you have a 2GB right now because it will still only use 2GB on both cards. Not to mention you will run out of GPU horsepower before fully utilizing the full 4GB.

Considering you are gaming @ 1080P, you'll be just fine with 2GB of VRAM. You can also check your VRAM usage with a tools like MSI Afterburner or EVGA PrecisionX.
