Edit: | Report abuse 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.) | Report abuse megamanx00 Graphics card Master 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. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>At what resolution would you start taking advantage of 1gb vram?> Related ressources: Forum1GB or 2GB VRAM Video Card?
