    pfff, Crysis 3 wasn't impressive. You don't hear people say "will it run Crysis 3?"
    IIRC original Crysis is 4-5GB for an install. Its VRAM usage is only a few GB. I'm going to try running "will it run Crysis" Crysis on my 11GB 2080 Ti :p

    I actually have a 15GB RAMdisk on my system memory, I've ran small VR games from there to test it out before committing onto my SSD. I did the same with 7GB RAMDisk back in 2012 when I had 16GB and 8GB was more than plenty for gaming.

    No one ever got fired from buying too much RAM ;)

    RAM disks for the win - I've been using 'em since the Amiga days. I couple mine with zram, so if I start using up memory it'll compress the contents ahead of paging it out to disk (well, SSD.)

    Just about fits on a 11GB 2080 Ti. Can't do this on 10GB 3080 :p
    (Crysis GOG install is 8GB)

    Also, the VRAM disk program was ran from my RAMdisk. :lol:
