When your dedicated GPU runs out of Vram then system memory the RAM sticks in your laptop or desktop start getting used up next which is slower then your vram. expect stutters or fps reductions when this happens so you will want to lower settings so that it doesn't exceed your vram limit. At this point i wouldn't recommend any card that doesn't have at least 8gb vram. Click to expand... Click to shrink... Even if it's slower, is it necessarily going to make me stutter/drop FPS? Suppose I upgrade to 16 GB of RAM, would I have any real issues with performance? What budget card would u recommend with 8GB VRAM?
