Hi,
I'm not really clued up on these type of things I have a Gigabyte Z370 Core i7 8700k with 8Gb of RAM and when we checked the Supplier website it says it has 6GB Video Memory Capacity, I currently have a GTX 1060 I think with 6Gb not sure can be less, Someone offered to give me their GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB GDDR5X.

So the question is will 11Gb work with the 6Gb? or does it mean something else?
Or just stick with the 1060?
Thanks in advance

Assuming your PSu can power a 1080Ti it will be fine. The cpu and motherboard don't care how much Vram the gpu has. Likely the supplier was just reporting how much vram your current gpu has in an oddly confusing way.

Yeah, the description was a little weird on the site, but I have a 750w PSU (I think its EVGA) so I think it should be fine, well I hope so lol. Thanks for replying though, at least now I know I don't have to panic :D, I tried searching everywhere but couldn't find anything
