It really depends on the TYPE of game you are actually playing, but those 2 PC games are demanding, and they might require more VRAM. Though, on 900p, you shouldn't run out of video memory, but I would say 2GB is little less as per today's standard of AAA titles.

But, it will really depend on the game being played. Some games don't require more than 2GB of VRAM. The latest AAA games like Far Cry 5, SOTR, Metro EXODUS. do require some graphics horsepower, IMO.

That's a bit tricky question to answer. It will actually depend on the game's Graphics settings. You need to figure out which Graphics/Video setting is the most Taxing on the GPU, so that you can turn it off, or reduce the quality (e.g. Ambient Occlusion, TXAA, tessellation etc.). It will depend on PC game being played.

But I think on 900p, you should be fine. Your CPU is going to work harder on this screen res, instead of the Video card. If you can reduce the most graphic demanding Video setting, then you shouldn't run into any serious FPS drops.
