Does having a monitor with a higher refresh rate/higher resolution use more of your graphics cards vram?

Also, a screen with the resolution of 1920x1080 would have 2073600 pixels, correct? So all screens, regardless of size, have 2073600 pixels? Does that mean that a screen that is 4 times smaller than another screen would have the pixels 4 times more dense?

The refresh rate is not going to make much of a difference to the cards Vram but the resolution will and yes a 22" 19 x 10 screen has smaller pixels than a 103" 19 x 10 screen but they both have the same amount of pixels.

Thanks for the response. Does running dual screen with similar screens make you use double the VRAM?

In theory yes (also in practice for the most part), running two or more screens means the GPU has to render more screen area and will need somewhere to store all those different textures before they are are sent to their various screens.
