What? Can you post a screenshot of this? When I played at 1080p with my old setup, I remember maxing Batman:AA on a single 1GB 460 w/9800GT for PhysX and I never choked on VRAM.

what happen if you max the vram just on a 1920x1200 resolution is that bad? sorry for being a noob, am trying to learn about vram since i got the 2x gtx 580 1536mb and now the 3gb came out, is 1536mb enough?

he was almost certainly wrong, don't worry

as long as you don't go multi monitor, or higher than 1080p

i have a 6850,which is way weaker than the 580,and it handles that resolution fine. i reckon you should just go with the 570. or get a 6970. and have eyefinity.
