ps.: not that you can run games on ultra with this card, just saying
Just because I could have swear you were going to count those games I did the same in Afterburner and the biggest VRAM usage on Ultra settings was 925MB in BF3, 816MB in Witcher 2 and 715MB in Crysis 2. So let's stop lying for a sec, OK?
