There's a difference between a game using an amount of video memory and a game needing an amount of video memory.
A lot of games, all the way back to the original Crysis, will fill up a 2-3GB videocard, but won't have any performance improvement over running it off a 1GB card.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

You have a crossfire setup so it's doubling everything. You don't have 6GB It's actually only using a little over 1.8GB out of the 3GB you have total.

your settings showed 2gb usage for those same settings, it would be 4gb if it were doubled, just seems off.

especially if I remove the 8x msaa, then it goes down to like 1.4gb, so single card.. id be using 700mb? lol

Who knows but I do notice you have your shadow quality only at high while mine was set to very high. Also usage does seem to be low if turning off msaa.
