don't wait for the 4gb 670. You won't see a real performance increase (maybe something synthetic)

Your right for 1080p the 4gb is useless. only get it if you are gonna go for the higher res.

Even at higher res most testers are saying there is no difference. Which makes sense.

If I was getting a GTX670, 4GB would be the way to go - some new games will be using more vram - BF3 uses quite a bit now. If you plan on keeping the card for 3 years and possibly SLIing, or higher res, more vram will be the way to go.

at the res of 1080p 2gb is more then enough and that card is a good gaming card 4 gb is for gaming in more higher resolutions with max aa and texture rates at high the 2gb one on that resolution will do that.:)

Just because skyrim can use more than 3 GB VRAM doesn't mean it will lag on a card with 2 GB. I play crysis 2 on my GTX 560 Ti 1 GB with directx 11 and high resolution textures - I stay over 40 fps all the time, my settings are all ultra except for post processing, which is set on extreme (1 step below ultra), and I play at 1080p. According to MSI afterburner, my VRAM is all used up.

I'd say you should get a 2 GB version.

Not disable, just lower it by 1 setting. It increased my fps by 10-15. Was hovering 27-32 fps at full ultra, now it's above 40 fps. My card is clocked to 975 MHz core and 2200 mhz memory.
May 14, 2012 9:32:34 AM

mine has 832 core clock so .... i have only 25-30 .. not the big difference :)  htnx for info ... 40 fps is playable for me ^^

Just overclock it then! You should have over 30 definitely with Post processing turned down without an overclock..

sorry but i don't like OC ing :) )) and i don't want to *** up my kard for extra 3-5 fps :) )) + OC ing voids warranty ^^

OCing doesn't void warranty, where did you get that from?

Newegg.com only ships within the US.

Newegg.ca only ships within Canada.
