Hello [H], I just was able to grab a deal for a gtx 690 and was wondering if anyone that has a similar setup could comment on it.

I'm coming from a single 7970 and on most game I usually just leave aa at 2x (unless a source game), I'm wondering if the 2Gb of ram is enough? I also am slightly nervous about newer games and vram usage, ie BF4 and the likes. the reason I'm going for a 690 is because it is going in an itx system thus regular SLI/crossfire isn't an option, and the 7990 is still too expensive. Im trading my 7970 + $400 for an EVGA 690, compared to selling my 7970 and getting $290-$320 for it and grabbing a malta 7990 for $920 (saffire has them listed at that price)

Thanks in advance

I have personally experienced VRAM limitation with a 680 GTX 2GB SLI setup at 2560x1600 (Far Cry 3, Crysis 3 and Tomb Raider).

Frankly, I think that the 690 is a bit of dud.

really, I knew about crisis, but was hoping in other games it would be ok. I get the card tomorrow, Ill post back if I run into any major vram limits, hopefully at 2x AA I don't run into any.
