The vram will be compressed first, then it will start using your RAM, then it will compress your RAM if it's out, then last it will use your hard drive as memory. After that you're screwed (but you probably need a new hard drive at this point anyway).

You see a massive reduction in performance, and dropped frames/stutters/freezes when loading certain areas.

The world will end!!! 

Nah it’ll start shooting things to system RAM if you have any left which’ll drop performance then if that’s full it’ll go to your HDD or SSD where performance will tank.

-> Moved to Graphics Cards



Please be more specific? VRAM and RAM are different things. Filling VRAM means that you start seeing stuttering and graphical glitches since GPU can't load more stuff there.
