So, Question of the Day- Probably been answered 50 times but I didn't find it in search.
How important is the Graphics Memory in a new card.
I want to buy a GTX 770 (EVGA). The current models have 2 GB standard- which doesn't seem all that high by today's standards. I'm seeing older cards (7970, etc.) that have 3GB standard, and my 3 year old GTX 460 even has a 1GB- so up to 2Gb doesn't seem like a big leap.
I've also seen others say that the 4GB model of the GTX 770 is a waste unless you're doing some very high end dual monitor and/or well beyond 1920x1080 resolutions. ie. not worth the $50 premium in a standard setup.
I could see myself stepping up to a 2nd monitor *or* maybe a next tier of resolution in the next 2 years. We'll see- but it's not a priority for me at this time.
Think I'd regret buying a 2GB card in 2013? Or is RAM in cards really only useful up to 2GB or less in your average enthusiast setup?
