Preferably i'd have parts avalible either in Hong Kong(where I live), or an websites like Amazon that allow international shipping, my budget is around $1200-1400, and i'd like to check for compadibility and perhaps better alternatives, Thanks.
NO point in the 4gb card as you run out of GPU horsepower way before you run out of vram.
Maybe in multi GPU configs.
I disagree, and when I was running skyrim texture mods I thanked god I got the 2GB 6870 compared to the 99percent 1GB majority that said just that. They were hurting, I wasn't. Better to future proof I'd say but either way you are good to go.
