290x w/ 8GB

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
290x w/ 8gb vram.

vram = resolution + eye candy.
with the current aaa games. even quad fire will choke delivering playable enjoyable frame rate before 8gb will ever get used up.

so who still buying one? or two? or three? or four?

Four gigs is enough

overkill. I agree it seems to be this card is aimed squarely at Xfire and Trifire users.
That being said, 3gb on the non-titan NVIDIA cards is too little.

Well 6gb Titan's max out the vram in some games on 4k surround so I can see it being useful
