Solved 2GB Vram enough for soon to be next gen games? Tags: Games Next Generation Graphics Last response: December 22, 2013 1:51 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Devronicthetonicman December 22, 2013 1:30:24 PM So I just bought this Gcard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Great price for a good card. And I hope to run SLI on it in the future. How ever my fear is that it is only 2gb... Now being that said..how long do you guys think this will keep me happy in the sense of next gen games coming out soon? ALSO if I run SLI will that help with the Vram GB usage even though its only 2gb? I appreciate any who takes the time to read this and hopefully can give me some insight on my thoughts. Cheers!

For 2014 you will be fine, but later nor the gpu power or vram will be enough. P.S: a 290 will be more futureproof for only 60$ more Reply to _guillem Bassim Ansari December 22, 2013 1:39:07 PM There is so much controversy regarding this question that you would have hordes of Nvidia fan boys coming here to defend this tbh. But from a neutral perspective, 3gb + VRAM will always be the better option. SLI no effect on VRAM.

Reply to Sakkura Devronicthetonicman December 22, 2013 1:41:26 PM Well shoot...I was intending for some what of a future proof...do you guys think I got a good card for the price regardless of Vram GB? I'm just curious because this is my first build ever!

More VRAM is especially needed if you upgrade your monitor to 1920 x 1080p or if you are already at that, if you decide to upgrade your monitor to 2500p It is also needed in some heavy GPU rendering packs. But I think your GPU is a good one. It's a high end GPU , and will cover most games with ease. Don't fret about it.

Again though I am a little worried cause i'm a total Battlefield fan....and from what I hear the recommended Vram is 3gb. heh....
