Hey guys just wanted to ask that if 1GB of DDR5 VRAM is enough?
I would be doing 3D modelling, photoshop, after effects etc.
I have an 8 core system btw.
The card I am choosing is an AMD HD 7770

I was actually going for Nvidia's GTX 750Ti but ended up falling short on cash...

VRAM does not affect performance, it affects FPS when displaying on huge resolution such as 3 x 1080p monitors.

I have a 1366x768 display, i guess that'd be alright?

You are perfectly fine with the 7770 with 1GB VRAM.

If you want a card similar to the 750ti but a bit cheaper look at a 260X 2GB, it's more costly than the 7770 of course though.

I would advise getting a bit of a better card if you're doing 3d rendering. If you could stretch your budget a bit. It isn't just about the vram, it's also about the cores and speeds

1 GB of VRAM is sufficient even for 1080p.

Actually 3D rendering is a CPU intensive task instead of Graphics Card. Its purpose is to diplay the model with a nice and sustained frame rate. And as I sauid earlier, my CPU has 8 cores thats pretty OK to render out basic animations and pics. I just wanted to know if the VRAM would make much difference as the clock speed is quite decent.
