Edit: BruceOTB July 21, 2009 7:12:53 AM thanks. would a 512mb max out 1680x1050 full aa/af, given that the card has the ability to do it. (gtx 295 mars edition but with only 512mb ddr3 256 bit as a sample.) megamanx00 a c 106 U Graphics card July 21, 2009 5:26:36 PM It really just depends on the game. Generally having more than 512MB of Ram provides a visible benefit at resolutions above 1680x1050. With AA and AF then it's more like 1680x1050 and above. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
