Hello guys, i am assembling a new rig, specs as follows:
Processor: i5 3570
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H
RAM:G.Skill 8 gb(2X4GB) ddr3 1600Mhz
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 1 TB
Graphic Card: Zotac nvidia gtx 650 ti Boost 2 GB
PSU: Corsair CX500

I have checked many websites for Metro Last light benchmarks. For consideration, last light gives
41 fps @ 1680 X 1050 and
34 fps @ 1920 X 1200, the settings were "High".
On another site, the stats were:
64 fps @ 1920 X 1080 with SSAA and PhysX being OFF.

In today's super resolution era 1080p is indeed a trend and hence most of the benchmarks have something round bout there. But however im gonna be using a monitor with max resolution 1360 X 768, so now since im playing at a low resolution do i really need the 2 gb, would it be helpful? and would having such low resolution as compared to those tested for benchmarks result into a better frame-rate.

Note: i have researched, there are websites which have compared 560 ti at different resolutions, and lowering resolutions would indeed increase fps, but however i would yet like to know what do you guys think about it..

Umm definitly go for the 2gb card because the newer games get the more memory they take up and the best graphics games such as metro last light etc take a little over 1gb playing at that resolution on higher settings.

I feel like i have anwsered this question today, but the 650ti should have no problem playing metro, i have the same card and i play at 1600 1050 maxed out (apart from AA ofc) with 60+ frames.
If you're willing to spend more than you can go for the much more powerful , but also more expensive, gtx760 garanteed future proof.

Edit: and yes 2gb is well worth it.

Yes it was me itself, but the POV of the question in here has changed(and the graphic card too) as compared to the previous one, moreover i have report abused this one and re opened the thread in its right section, it doesn't belong to the "motherboard" section

u will definitely get 40 -60 fps @ very high setting tessellation high ,advanced physx @1680 x1050, ssaa off(metro lastlight )also get good performance with metro 2033.(around 45 fps with all settings max out)
