  1. Vram stores the image that is displayed on the screen, the bigger the resolution the larger the image therefore more ram is needed.
  2. Best answer
    not entirely (effect game performance single screen - sub 1080p resolution), but greater the resolution, the more Vram is needed to drive the display/s. A low end GPU with great amounts of Vram is pointless as the GPU core itself will struggle powering such high resolutions. Vram effects gaming performance to a degree but 2GB is prime enough for sub 1080p, anything over 3GB-4GB-6GB and now 8GB will be beneficial for huge resolutions.
  3. Yes it is. the higher the res the more Vram is used and the higher AA the more V ram is used.
