    That's right I was able to play Fallout New Vegas in 1440p resolution on my R9 270 maxed out

    Indeed. I've not had to drop a single game I play down to medium settings yet for 1080p. Even behemoths like The Witcher 3 I run at high texture quality. Shader/geom/etc. power is going to be a limitation on my 7870 before the 2GB RAM is.
