Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i wanna try Apex, and i have 2 choices of GPU to put in my pc. 


i have a GTX 780Ti in it now, which has 3gb of vram ,ad a GTX 690 with 2gb of vram (4gb but it's SLI so 2gb usable). which card would be better?



also before you reply i know Apex has crap SLI support, but i found a fix here:

Lower the texture settings? I suggest play with 780 Ti. 
Game texture settings scale from 2GB, 4GB, 6GB and 8GB.

I have an RX 460 running on all low settings with Textures down and I get roughly 50-55 frames. I would recommend more vRam than 2gb but you may be able to pull it off. If it were me I wouldn't suggest it, but I don't think it would hurt to give it a shot.

Based on my personal experience - yes, 2 GB of VRAM will suffice.


I've been playing with a Radeon HD 7850 2 GB and the game runs surprisingly smooth. Yes, obviously, my graphics settings are turned down a little bit but I am able to play just fine with my available VRAM.


Also, according to their website, the minimum required AMD graphics card is a Radeon HD 7730, which has only 1 GB of VRAM.


Edit: Sorry, you'd care about the NVIDIA card... The minimum required is an NVIDIA GeForce GT 640.

Forgot you were using an NVIDIA card.

at 1080p it run perfectly smooth on Low texture medium everything else on my 680 GTX (2gb). HWInfo shows 1.6 to 1.8 gb used while playing.

Just putting it out there.....

if nothing works, you can set a certain framerate in the game settings to, say 60 fps and the game adjusts the video settings for you

ps: I'm playing with MX150 and I get a steady 60fps

780 ti will be just fine for adjusted settings @ 1080p
