I know how you feel. Would be nice to see some 3GB models but for reasons I don't understand, it seems large memory versions of cards will always be double the standard memory size. Of course it comes down to the games and settings you want - if you're strongly opposed to dropping settings then I'd suggest looking for a deal on a 4GB model.
Thing with 2GB is that if you do reach a point where it's insufficient, dropping texture resolution should be all that's necessary that you can still max everything else with good framerates (provided the GPU itself is capable of course but either of these should be fine for a good while).
LOL Anandtech is a load of crap for this. They mix up driver versions and even test setups. See if you can find details anywhere on that page that states driver version etc. Techpowerup actually understand fair testing:
