I have had a GTX560ti 1GB since launch (not the uprated model) and I exclusively game at 1920x1080 and this isn't likely to change. I am still delighted with the performance I have had from this card but recently I find the games I play use up all of my VRAM causing frequent REALLY bad dives to 10fps.

I really enjoy playing Assetto Corsa and lag in driving games is just totally game breaking, the longer tracks cause me to stutter halfway round even though when stood still I will get a good solid 60fps+. My reasoning to upgrade is that I know this 1GB card isn't going to get any better, especially on games that will chew up VRAM like open world GTA5 and Metal Gear Solid 5.

I am a student on a budget so Ideally I am thinking of getting the GTX960 when that launches which I have heard will be a 2GB card, however maybe I should pay the extra the a GTX970 with 4GB?

Tl;Dr: If I want to play GTA5, MGS5, Shadow of Mordor, other amazing games on max @ 1920x1080 should I get a 2GB or 4GB card?

I realise no-one knows about the GTX960 yet, I want to know if 2GB VRAM would be limiting.

Turn down anti-aliasing. I see you use a 32" TV though, so I'm not sure how bad the jaggies are looking at that.

Wait for the 960 on jan 22th maybe for 250usd but if you cant wait and you are limited for under 300usd get a r9 290 should be 4x times your gpu or a 970 if you can buy a 330-370usd gpu
