Closed Would shared VRAM help if I have a card with 1280MB? Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Elite MSI Graphics Last response: May 21, 2012 1:45 PM in Graphics & Displays Share bawss May 19, 2012 9:40:52 AM Hello, I'm thinking of purchasing a GTX 570 and sell my GTX 580 to a friend. Right now, MSI Afterburner detects that Sniper Elite V2 used a max of 1312MB. So if I got the GTX 570 with 1280MB, would that shared VRAM stop me from crashing? Thanks.

I don't really like the idea of slowing the frame rate.
