Ok, im trying to build a computer to buy and i never have a computer good enough to play the total war series (referring to Empire and most definitly Rome 2). I am also going to start playing Armas' and i might download 3d videos and play it on a 3d 55inch tv. I figuring just the stuff on the gaming side though, so i figure i need atleast a GeForce 670 for a Good (+) graphics card. Having this already in my mind saw the Geforce 680 4gb single card. Would i be better off to get the 670 or the 4GB 680? i saw a whole different array the next day i looked to like a Geforce 680 6gb single,double, and triple card. i dont even know what to think about that **it.
so what im asking is what is the 680 4gb even used for is there some game in the world that actually needsit or that people buy it for a specific purpose for?
Heres my specs i have on a computer as of today ( ive been modifying parts down for a better price kindof)
Intel X79 Core i7 Configurator
1 x Case ( Corsair Vengeance C70 Gaming Case - Gunmetal Black )
1 x Case Lighting ( Cold Cathode Neon Light - Blue )
2 GB is fine if you don't mod games and you play on a 1080p monitor. Once you up your resolution or mod your games you will most likely need more than 2 GB of vram. I mod my skyrim a lot and it has used 2.7 GB of vram before and that's on a single 1080p monitor.
Well usually its for modding or more than 1 monitor gameplay or usage. Anyway, here is how you can make better upgrades or save some money. Reduce to 8gb/16gb ram of 1600/1866 ram, no need for them to overclock, if you want to that is fine. Buy 2gb card if you are playing on single monitor.
