I think the main idea of this question is deciding what is best to have in a gaming graphics card, performance or memory. I have the option to use EVGA's step up program and "step up" from my 03G-P4-3784-KR card to a 06G-P4-3785-KR card.
I've done some research online where people seem to go towards performance rather than more memory, but these posts I read were from 1-2 years ago where it was said that most games don't go past 1-2GB of graphics memory usage. From what I was told, this is no longer true.

Any input would be extremely helpful. Thanks.

If you're gaming at anything less than 3 displays, or 4k, you wont need that 6gb card.

I plan on having only 2 displays. Dumb question, what do you mean by 4k?

Yeah you dont need a 6gb card, if you have one for games and one for web/whatever you dont need 6gb, it will do nothing for you. And 4k represents the 3840x2160 resolution, which would benefit from higher vram. However if you are using 1920x1080 or 2560x1440p it wont do anything for you

Okay, thanks! I'll stick with my 03G-P4-3784-KR card.
