[H]ard|OCP took a look into the effect on performance the gigantic high resolution texture pack has on system performance in their latest article. For those who want the answer immediately, the largest amount of VRAM they saw utilized was a hair over 5GB, in most cases more than double the usage that the default textures use. This certainly suggests that those with 4GB cards should reconsider installing the texture pack and that a 6GB card shouldn't see performance impacts. As for the performance deltas, well we can't provide spoilers for their entire review!
