Is a good video card worthless if you only have 2gb ram?

I keep seeing threads where users say that you cant game with 2gb of ram.

This is my first venture into pc gaming and built my first pc on a budget.

Phenom x2 555 (unlocks to x4)
HD 4870 1gb
corsair 620hx
1x2gb ddr3 1600


is 2gb of ram going to hold me back that much? Or can I live with it for now until I find a suitable 2gb stick to add? Are we talking drastic framerate drops or what in terms or performance?
