Grandtheft auto five is saying I am using 2577 MB of video memory out of my 2047 MB

How is this possible?

i only have a 2 gig video card, so how can it use more than what my video card has?

Exactly it's like you you are giving permission to the game to crash and to stutters and screan tearing

The other posts have your question covered, do yourself a favor and reduce your setting so it is under 2gb, dont worry it will still look good and better than ps4 or xbone, depending on the actual gpu that is. I ran a 2 gig laptop GPU from 2013 for a few years and could run 1080p  at medium with a few high settings thrown in.

Out of interest what is the gpu your using?

Best way to get video memory usage down is lowering the texture quality. And make sure you have set Anisotropic Filtering to 16x, both in game and in your video driver if possible. Normal textures with Anisotropic Filtering still looks better than Very High without.

sorry, I just now saw this, 6 months later lol....I have an EVGA GTX 760 2GB, planning on upgrading to the EVGA RTX 3060 12GB eventually , or maybe the RTX 3050, I think its going to have 4GB of GRAM and around $150 (?)

You might want to look up certain settings and people who have the same GPU as yours in order to find the best setting. If the game acts like a retard, I might suggest you to lower your textures until you will get a new GPU.
