My heavily modded Skyrim uses upwards of 3gb vram as well just running on a single monitor, definitely glad I waited to get the 4gb 680

Why would you need that much msaa when your obviously on a 2560x1200 monitor or something around that?

Some screenshots below

5760x1080 Maxed Out (Maybe that 6GB 7970 isn't too ahead for it's time XD)

5760x1080 2xMSAA (Much more reasonable)

Is this is misconception or not? 'Anything above 4x MSAA doesn't matter in 1920x1080 resolution? '
