Default 6GB or 8GB

My current rig, MVF, 3770k @ 4.4, GTX970, 16 gig RAM, 27" 1080p 144Hz monitor. DCS world default high settings with view set to ultra. The SU27 mission I am getting around 90FPS, the free flight Huey over the Vegas strip is down to 45 FPS (CPU 24%, GPU 99%). I have looked on youtube for benches but for DCS 2.5, I only seem to find 4k with VR or XX80 / ti videos.

So for DCS world is a 8GB card better (1070) or will a 2060 / 1660ti 6GB do the same job. I have seen all the bench videos of the 2060 equalling the 1080 / 1070ti but is 8 GB better for DCS.

Thanks for reading

More is better.

It mainly depends on your screen resolution.

People with 16GB cards already report 14+GB VRAM usage, so paint your pic.
