    I have an gtx 650 ti boost 2gb ddr5 192 bit @6008mhz

    I want to sli it which doubles up to 384 bit 4gb memory

    What is the best resolution monitor I can get for smooth gameplay...
    Suggest both 2d and 3d monitors
    I don't want multiple monitor set up...
    Thanks

    You don't get double vram. You still get 2GB, the cards need to mirror the information.

    ^That's in reference to high end cards with copious amounts of vram. Sli/cf with 2GB cards should be avoided where possible.

    ^You get double the GPU power, so you could increase graphics settings as long as you don't care about uber high res.
    The higher the res the more vram gets eaten, eventually you'll run out and the game will start hitching, even with 2 gpu's.

    Especially if you're like me and have about 100 mods installed.

    At 1920x1080 you should get 60fps or more in BF3/4. 1080p is basically the limit for 2GB.

    Not sure on Ghost I don't follow COD, prob around the same though. Crysis 3 sucks tbh, I would not waste my time on that POS.
