FPS doubt w.r.t Metro Last Light on a GTX 650 ti Boost 2 GB

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..

    Yes it will improve framerate, and if you only have that resolution and plan to stick with it, you don't need a 2GB card. But if you decide to switch to a 1080p monitor in the future, that 1GB wont be enough.
  2. Lower resolution = less pixels to be rendered = better FPS.

    For that low a resolution you do not need 2GB of VRAM BUT consider that you may want a BETTER monitor at some stage.
