2GB vs 3GB

Dear whoever reads this. I'm not quite sure what to do here, I am going the path of crossfire and I am really not sure what to do. Is it worth paying quite a bit extra and getting 3GB GDDR5 for crossfire or 2GB GDDR5 (crossfire) i would really appreciate some help and would like to know the difference between 2GB crossfire vs. 3GB crossfire thanks. (:

    It a difference in VRAM(video ram)the theory is the more the vram the less the lag in high resolutions

    the big difference would be that the 2gb models are slower than the 3gb, nothing to do with ram, but because they have different gpu's. you would be better off getting a high end 3gb card, like a 7970, than 2 medium cards like 7850's or 7770's. crossfire doesn't work properly with all games/resolutions, a better single card is better.
  3. Crossfire is only for more than one monitor and bigger resolution, and as iam2thecrowe said i would choose one better card if you are going play only on one pc

    if you read some recent articles, crossfire + triple monitors = nearly 50% dropped frames, out of sync frames, torn frames, etc. Its a huge problem and can result in worse performance than a single card.
  5. Thanks guys single card it is :)
