I run a dual monitor setup both monitors running at 1920X1080 resolution. I only play games on a single monitor usually using the other one to look up stuff and or watch Netflix while grinding (SWTOR, WoW, GW2). In addition to the MMORPG’s mentioned I play games like Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, and Dishonored.
Now to my questions:
Would I see any in game differences if I were to use a GTX 680 with 2GB of onboard ram versus 4GB of onboard ram?
(Assuming everything else is the same. i.e GPU clock, Memory clock)
The GTX 680 uses the new PCIe 3.0 slot. Will there be any problems if it is put into a PCIe 2.0 slot?
(I’m fairly familiar with computers so I’m assuming it will run just fine, but slower. I would like conformation before I spend $460 - $560 on a graphics card.)
Would you recommend the brand EVGA?
(If so could you explain their hierarchy. i.e FTW vs Superclock vs Classified)
