Buy a 1080 ti.

 

Edit: What resolution are you playing this at? Because some thing aren't needed when running at 1440p or 4K. Things like MSAA 4x+ and grass at ultra will kill vram usage at those kind of resolutions.

I have a Laptop. Unless I throw away my current mother board and do a custom job on it then no dice.

 

I thought since I had 16 gigs of ram I would be fine. I was thinking of upgrading to 32

There is a difference between VRAM and just regular ram. VRAM or video ram can, as far as I know, only be upgraded with buying a better gpu.

 

Unless you got a laptop that can accept external GPU's, the only option is to buy a new laptop or accepting that everything at ultra isn't a possibility.

Well I do have a Alienware and it does that that adapter that I can buy and put any video card there but it's huge.

VRAM is memory for visual content, standard RAM is for pretty much everything else. The only solutions are get a more powerful video card or lower your settings.

forget external Gpu's, even if you spend all the money in a better gpu and the external docking station, the transfer rate of thunderbolt3 just cant handle all the data being transfered around.
