The thing is that with CF & SLI setups the memory is counted per GPU, and NOT the combined amount of both cards.
The higher the resolution, the higher end card with more/faster memory is needed.
That's pretty much what I am saying. The higher resolutions [2560 x 1600] run better with two cards. Resolutions at 1920 x 1200 and less,run very smooth with one high end card. This is from my exprerience with 24,27 and 30 inch monitors. I don't know how video memory plays into this, but I do know what worked with my set ups.
