GO play gta4 and you will see.

Trust me, at that resolution theres no way you are using more than a 512mb buffer can provide. If you were, people with 24" monitors wouldnt even be able to touch AA.

Are you using like 64x AA or what? Is GTA4 the new "what where they thinking when they ported this crap" game? Its a port, how can it be using 800mb of video ram when it originally was designed to play on a PS3 which has a 3? year old video card in it.

With only 512MB video ram you can't run GTA 4 at high textures

GTA 4 is memory hungry game.


Anyway, here are some reviews for GTX 285
