There's your answer right there.

Video memory has turned into a marketing tool lately with the more is better argument being used in a lot of cases where it's not necessarily true.

For 5570x1080 in bf4 you get 3.1gb vram usage so.I would get a 4gb card like a r9 290 for futureproof

I was talking to a friend and he has two 780's and tells me he gets close to the 3gb limit playing @5670x1080 with all the goodies on in BF4.. I'd rather not buy a card that a game can already hit, or come close to its vram limit.. As for the 290, I'm sure its a great card, but demand has inflated its price.. I'm leaning toward the Titan Black for now.. I have a month before I'm actually home (visiting family atm)...

if you ar eon USA there ARE R9 290 WITH AFTERMARKET COOLING for 499usd(check amazon or newegg) and the xfx one comes with BF4 for free and 2x r9 290 would costas the same as a titan black and outperform it by 20% or more

Pretty sure you can get a reference 290X for less then $600 since you are going to water cool. AMD card shine at very high resolutions.
