of course you will need the 4gb, more vram is needed in multiple monitors.

Most games should be fine with 2gb. If you're just driving the second monitor for glancing to i doubt you need another 2gb memory for it, a 6 year old gpu can do that. I'd get 4gb of memory as you might want to SLI in the future with newer games. With a triple monitor setup you could go over the 2gb on the card.

This article may help?? for the gtx 680 though. there are others out there i just couldn't find them super-fast on a google search.

2gb vram is enough for a SINGLE monitor but in dual monitor, you should get 4gb vram because most games now uses almost 2gb vram in 1080P. Max payne 3, however, uses almost 3gb vram if it is avialable. So getting 4gb is wise specially in dual monitor.

well, did I said that you will use the monitor for gaming? he could do other stuff like video editing while playing. And please, don't react like a surprised cat.

Yeah the second monitor might be for something like checking temps and other stuff while gaming on the single monitor, and maybe if im live streaming to check the chat.
