Tech Deals does this information from this video apply to laptops as well? I just recently purchased a ASUS 15.6 inch Strix with the 120hz display and it has 3gbs of vram.

What about Vram and and insanely modded game like fallout 4 with over 200 mods and texture packs? Would that make a difference between 3 or 6GB ?

As pointed out in the video consumers need to be aware, the purchase of a GPU starts with what monitor(s) and detail you are content with, cause all you who purchased 3gb cards for 1080 gaming in 2016 are not going to be so happy if you get a 4k/2k gaming monitor for Christmas in 2018.

You don't just buy a videocard for now. You want it to be futureproof when games will need up to 6gb of memory. Buy the 6gb! ;)

here is the deal: for people who have a high refreshrate 1080p monitor, the 3GB is the obvious option. for people who want to play games at high or ultra or have a higher(1440p or ultrawide) refresh rate monitor, the 6GB is an obvious option. nvidia shot itself in the foot by including just slightly less vram than most AAA titles utilize at top settings.

so many freaking variables ur head could probably explode. a gtx550m held the og Skyrim at 40fps maxed out. when u introduce 3rd party mods to any game, the performance is gonna depend on optimizations the mods have. it might make the most powerful gpu crap its pants. in fact, as far as i know a gtx1060 is more powerful than the most powerful gpu at the time skyrim was released.

I have a 14 year old intell 9650 due core quad, d3 800 8gb ram, gtx 750 1gb vram. I've upgraded the video cards twice the hard drive once, the power supply once, and the ram twice. The cpu once. My final upgrade will be a gtx 1050ti 4gb vram because much more that that is a bottle neck. But if your useing two or three monitors and reording, and live streaming, and gaming the extra vram is a must.

Vor 3 Monate

running a monitor pretty much takes nothing out of a 4GB card. not sure about nvidias recording system. live streaming doesn't have anything to do with it as far as i am aware. pretty sure that with both recording and streaming, the cpu would be a far bigger problem.
