Hi there.
I'm making new build and I was wondering if 3Gb of VRAM is enough for playing games like Battlefield 3, TES V:Skyrim with 4k textures and other mods like that at 2560x1440p. For 1080p it's enough but for 1440p?

More about : 3gb vram 2560x1440

Yes 3GB is enough. But what GPU are you using? It will depend on the GPU.

For 1440P, your card can run Battlefield 3, TES V:Skyrim with High to ultra settings @ 40-60 FPS without any problems.

Battlefield 4 will run in this card at 1440P with an average of 50-60 FPS.

For those games, yes. However, more games are starting to use a lot more VRAM, so beware. If you're only planning on getting one GPU and never going to 2 or 3-way SLI, then don't worry about VRAM because you'll run out of horsepower before you run out of VRAM.
