Hello, i need your advice I going to upgrade my GPU. I really like MSI GTX 680 Lightning but it has only 2GB of RAM, i want to aski if it should be enough for Skyrim moded (HDTextures, Enb, etc.) and other games (1920x1080) single monitor ? because i love that card, i was thinking to go with Radeon 7970 Lightning but it hasn`t new tecnologies like nvidia has (Adaptive VSync, FXAA, TXAA, Physics) that`s the reason i like more nvidia 600 series then hd 7000. What should i do? Go with GTX 680 2gb or HD 7970 3GB?
My system
i7-2600 3.4GHz with turbo 3.8GHz
6GB 1333 MHz
GTX 680 lightning 2GB or R7970 Lightning 3GB?
PSU Corsair TX 750W v2
Case Cm Storm Trooper
Give me advice please!
Thanks!

7970 does better in skyrim than nvida cards. Although 2GBs is fine your only going to need more than that if your doing multi monitors. Also physics is pretty gimmick to me hardly any games support it for it to be a must have.

I'd go with 7970 because it will best card for Skyrim and you get AMD latest bundle which is Farcry 3, Sleeping Dogs, Hitman

2GB is enough. My 7870 plays it fine with the ENB mod and about 5 other mods.

My 7870 + i72700k(stock) run skyrim on ultra around 110FPS with HDTextures.

I don't think you'll have a problem. Generally, a 670 is a better value than the 680, they are quite close in performance (5-10%).
