So either tomorrow or Saturday I will be getting my Zotac GTX 670 4GB GPU. I am guessing that the extra Vram will help alot in Crysis 2.

Well there will be more and more people signing into the club and than we can better see how many users are on the Red side, and how many are on the Green side.

But so far you are right, the green side is favoured amongs this small list of 1440p or above users.

Though the 2GB vram is enough for 95% of the games out there, still it will be a bottleneck for games like Crysis 2 in DX11 and high res texture pack, or maybe Skyrim at Max.

I can not wait to get my 4gb card oevr the weekend, and I can not wait to add a 2nd one to it.

2GB of VRAM isn't a bottleneck on ANY single monitor resolution.

The card itself on the otherhand...now that's a possibility. Remember that the GTX 670 and 680's are both bandwidth starved little monsters. They can't fully utilize 4GB of VRAM anyway.

Oh yeah not a bottleneck maybe but honestly i hit some scary memory levels in Crysis 2 without DX11 and Ultra res pack.

I even hit 1800 mhz on Battlefield 3 64 player maps without MSAA.

Kcuestag gave me a hint that I can always disable Windows Aero to free some memory though,

But I honestly want to grab 2 4gb 670s for a nice 1440p experience. I would have gone for 2 4gb 680s but they are no where in stock here in Turkey.

Again most games i play currently utilize around 1GB of Vram but 2-3 games are extreme exceptions for that.

Also I am too scared to fire Metro 2033 on 1440p. :) I wonder the memory usage on that game.

Just because a game is reserving that much VRAM, doesn't mean it NEEDS that much to provide a playable experience.

Your memory is there to use, let the game use it. That doesn't mean you need 4GB cards, that just means that the game is reserving so much for it to use, just in case it needs it (which it won't).

If you've already got a 2GB 670 or whatever, just grab a second 2GB card and enjoy.

Ever since I got the 30" monitor, I find it really hard to go to anything below 27", it's just that great

And to think, I was debating on trading my 3007WFP for 3x 2312HM's for portrait Eyefinity. Hmm, guess I'll just keep my eyes peeled for some 20" 1600x1200's still then.

Too late. Already sold my Gigabyte 670 Windforce. One of the reasons that I sold it was that the custom cooler was dumping the hot air inside the case, and when i want to add a 2nd one, the heat could be terrible inside the case. I opted for a Zotac 670 4GB which has a 680 pcb and cooler. I hope I wont regret it :)

Added.

Well i can understand you. I now have a 27inch screen and I can not go back to 24 inch or 1080p all together. For me bottom line in gaming is 27" and 1440p.

ouchh... Eyefinity and Surround are also nice but I love the IPS panel, high resolution and bigger screen.

I would have gone for the 690 too but selling dual GPU cards are a pain in the arse here in Turkey, they yield incredible losses while selling. I learned my lesson from 590. NEver buy a dual GPU card in Turkey because it is VERY VERY hard to sell it later.
