I'm currently building a PC and I'm unsure whether I should get a 1GB or 2GB GPU. I'm currently getting a Sapphire Technology 7790 dual-x OC edition, it's a 1GB GPU, it's pretty good for the price but after researching GPU's I'm trying to decide whether to get that or a 2GB GPU for around the same price. I intend to have two monitors, well one monitor and my small HDMI TV. I would only be gaming on one BTW, the other screen would be left idle. The problem I have is that if I got a 2GB GPU the core clocks etc. wouldn't be as powerful as any 1GB I could get for that price :/  I don't intend to even try play any games on max settings, except minecraft :p  Please let me know what you think, I'll be ordering pretty soon and I would appreciate a quick response. Thanks, Colm

More VRAM is adviseable. Get the 2GB.
