My System Specs

Default

Although I always recommend 3GB+ for triple display or resolutions higher than 1440p, 2GB cards are by no means incapable of running current games in high resolutions as long as you're willing to compromise just a little. Some games are more memory intensive than others, but on your system I'd think you should be fine as long as you use FXAA or FXAA + 2X MSAA instead of 4X/8X MSAA, which hogs a ton of memory. When I tested a pair of GTX 660 Ti GC 2GB vs. a pair of GTX 660 Ti GC 3GB, the 3GB cards didn't start really leaving the others behind until I started maxing out MSAA.
