Hi James,
 
I believe that Ethereum’s DAG file is currently around 2.3 GB and so, you will need a GPU with more Video RAM to mine it properly. While there may be some kind of workaround possible, you’ll certainly experience uncompetitive performance. I think you’d be better off mining some other coin or getting a GPU with at least 4 gigs RAM.
