Hey, thanks for all the responses. He'll be gaming at 1200. maybe at 4xAA.
I've been trying to convince him that More RAM doesn't necessarily a better card make. But that 2 GB vs 1.2 GB is hovering on his mind esp as the 570 and 6970 are priced close to each other.
So as of now, Metro and GTA 4 would need more than 1.2 GB right?
Pic 1 - max settings
Pic 2 - my settings (Basically reducing shadows from very high to high nets about 100MB less with no notable differences)
Benchmark results - 68 FPS
In-game performance: about 40 to 55 FPS depending on how crowded it gets.
