2 GB is awesome although I never use it all. Only got the 1 monitor. Closest to using all of it when I maxed GTA 4 it used about 1.2 GB.

@kreativedesines

I have an i5 760 and a HD 6950 + 1080p monitor and every game I have works fine on max settings (except GTA IV-super crap port). The Gran Turismo series is only on PlayStation-GT5 is on PS3. I got GT4 on my PS2 (My gaming system for old games).

hey guys, i some other peoples opinions.

im not entirely sure which graphics card to buy, i want to play like test drive unlimited 2, gran turismo 5 and black ops and MW2 on all maxed out settings on a 42" 1080i plasma.

would i be safe with the HD 6850 or should i get the 6870, the 6950, or just bite the bullet and get a 6970?

im also not planning on playing with multiple monitors, just my tv. so let me know some of your opinions, thanks.
