    yes that's right. remember that VRAM usage is directly proportional to the resolution. the higher the resolution, the more VRAM is used. also, anti aliasing uses lots of VRAM. your 6gb VRAM is way too plenty, nothing to worry about if not all of that 6gb is used.
  3. so basically i should switch to a better resolution/monitor to get more memory usage ? cool....thanks for the tip :)
