If you have a 512mb gfx card and a 1920x1080 monitor, would playing games in a window eliminate the slow down from lack of sufficient vram?

I only said it was for the current generation games because they are more graphic intensive. 1GB should get you by if playing on a 1920x1080, but you will have to lower graphic settings or filtering settings.
 
My 1.28GB GTX570 does just fine at 1920 x 1080, even if your card runs out of VRAM doesn't automatically mean your game will become unplayable, it'll just cache textures to your system RAM or SSD/HDD which will in turn lower performance (but may still be playable)
