I noticed that everyone online seemed to think one would have to be a fool to buy a card with 4GB VRAM unless it's for some sort of crazy surround setup with half a dozen monitors. I agree that most graphically intensive games are currently going to use at most around the 1.5 GB range at the moment (I think that's about what BF3 uses, for example), but I think the 2GB range will start to become an issue in next wave or so of graphically intensive games. I already have a game that can hit just over 2GB VRAM at only 1080p. I don't think I'd be happy to see that if I had paid $1,000 for the GTX 690, which has only 2GB per GPU. I'd be careful if you're buying a high end card with 2GB. I think 3GB is really where you want to start at this point if you're going to use a high resolution. I noticed that games with high end graphics are creeping towards the 2GB mark at the top end already, and I read Skyrim mods can absorb 3GB, so thought I'd post this as an early warning. I was thinking about games like GTA V that are on the horizon when I decided to spend the extra money for more VRAM. I expect it to be demanding and hoggish.
