Hey everyone. So I recently built my first ever gaming desktop using a 4770k, asus maximus vi hero, AX860 PSU, and an EVGA GTX 780 SC w/ACX. My question is if I should upgrade to the 6gb 780 for use with 3d? I recently bought an ASUS VG248QE 3D Gaming monitor that uses the 144Hz refresh rate. However I returned it due to money issues (It was also defective: red "stuck" pixel, and buzzing sound from the speakers whenever I started playing a game). Anyways, I recently have $100 in rebates coming back from when I bought all my hardware, so I plan to re-buy it sometime along with the NVidia vision 2 kit. Currently the 6Gb model isn't out yet, but I still have about 50 days to buy the 2 year extended warranty from EVGA to qualify for the STEP-UP PROGRAM (I was over the 14 day registration). That will leave me with almost 140 days to buy the 6GB if its released within that time. But a problem is that I will step up to a 6gb from a 3gb, which is still the "Same" video card according the STEP-UP rules. SO, I may NOT qualify.

I understand more VRAM is for multiple monitors, and higher resolutions...

BUT, my real question is if 6GB will help with the 3D? Like I mentioned, I already have a 780 with 3GB. Will the extra 3GB help any? Will I see any performance difference in the 6GB than the 3GB?

I would really appreciate your feedback. THANK YOU smile.gif

PLEASE don't tell me that 3D is gimmiky. I already know that. I just want it... well.. because I want it smile.gif

3d doesn't need more memory, higher resolution does. What 3d needs is more GPU power, because it halves your FPS.
