Is 3GB VRAM enough for this?

I was planning to get an ASUS 780, but i'm not sure if 3GB of VRAM is enough for 27" 2560x1440? Should I get an ASUS 290 instead?

  1. It really isn't measured in monitor size. If you are doing multi monitor that is when more VRAM matters. Don't worry, 3GB VRAM is plenty.

    No, I know! It was just to give some more information! What if I get a second monitor at some point? Will I then run in to trouble? Doesn't necessarily have to be 1440p, but who knows? :)

    as an example, I run 3 monitors which amounts to 6MP. BF4 uses 2.6GB on max settings. You'll be running 3.6MP so no problem. 2 monitors are worth it as you have the split down the middle, making many games unplayable. 3 monitors at your resolution might be pushing it for both Vram and GPU power. But it's the old case of (up to a point) the more Vram you have the more it'll use. So you might get away with 3GB. If running 3x high res monitors, R9 might be best to be safe.
