Desktop work ........ That covers a LOT of ground, and some of it can really benefit from additional VRAM. PS7 will see further implementation of GPU-specific processing, and LR5 will start GPU implementation. I disagree with your statement.

As a test done using Photoshop CS6 to see the benefits of graphic cards within processing, at least the amount of VRAM doesn't say anything for speed. Typically a GPU with the most VRAM + high processor power did very bad. (AMD Radeon 7970 3Gb).

The point of my post was to counter the argument that VRAM is unimportant for anything but gaming. As more software embraces GPU offloading, the more important VRAM will become.
