Im just wondering whether 3 gigs can handle next-gen gaming at 1440p. If not, how much will i need? And will it have a huge impact on frame rates? Thanks in advance.

3-4gb should be fine at the minute for 1440p gaming. You will lose frames compared to 1080p but that is unavoidable. There may be the odd game that catches it out and frames are a bit low but generally, 3gb should be fine :)

Yes, but by how much frame rates will games drop because of VRAM?

Depends on what make of card but it should only be 30-50% loss at most.
