Solved How much VRAM is needed if... Tags: Graphics Cards Monitors Graphics Last response: October 8, 2012 1:05 AM in Graphics & Displays Share tonysama916 October 7, 2012 8:54:29 AM I am currently using a Asus GTX 560TI. I want to use 3 monitors for multitasking/productivity only but still only game on 1 monitor in windowed mode. Games I currently play: Diablo 3, Borderlands 2, Counter Strike Global Offensive. Would a 2GB of VRAM upgrade be enough to run those titles at 1080p in window mode while having a couple of browsers open on the other screens watching a stream or video? If not, what do you suggest? I prefer to stick to nVidia (I know I am a fanboy).

But if you're looking to play on 5760x1080, I would recommend a 7970 instead. | Report abuse Best solution lucuis Graphics card Expert October 7, 2012 9:36:47 AM Extra monitors just showing desktop use next to no memory. A 2gb card would be plenty. | Report abuse luciferano Graphics card Expert October 7, 2012 9:38:37 AM refillable said:I think, it should be fine, since those games are not that demanding.

I don't think that there will be much of a difference between a GTX 670 and a Radeon 7970 in those games because they're all already so light on the graphics. | Report abuse tonysama916 October 8, 2012 1:05:00 AM Best answer selected by tonysama916. | Report abuse tonysama916 October 8, 2012 1:05:19 AM cool, thanks for the quick replies! | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>How much VRAM is needed if...> Related ressources: ForumHow much VRAM will I need to mod Skyrim?
