in the game graphics settings it tells you how much vram you have and depending on how high you crank up the settings it will show you how much you are using. i have a 3gb 580 and maxing out the game is using more than 2gigs. i almost bought 2 680s and im glad i didnt. just goes to show you that games are using more and are going to increase in it.

The game has 35gigs worth of data so you can expect it to be pretty hardcore on ram usage.

BF3 can also use more then 2 gigs completely maxed out, it kinda sucks my 570 is only 1.7 gigs of ram on it....

But yea it definitely sucks, I'm gonna sell my 570 and grab the best card out prior to GTA V's release because that game is going to be insane, especially if R* goes the extra mile with the graphics options like they did with MP3.

i would wait for the 4gb 680 which will be released before GTAV hits

idk what res your playing, but make sure you don't have MSAA and FXAA both on. It makes the game look worse, I maxed FXAA and shut off MSAA and the game looked amazing (everything else max 1920x1080) and really didn't use much Vram.
