    Do I need 1GB of VRAM or 512mb if I'm running an i7 quad-core for applications like FCP, Photoshop, etc? I'm trying to find a good used 2011 model and I'm finding plenty with the standard memory. Thanks!

    512MB is usually enough, most publishers base there applications on the least/minimum specs available on a Mac. 1GB would be better though.

    Save some money and get an early 2011 model with 1GB 6750M.
