i would say this. best air cooler, best binning, 580 lightning.

by the way, OP, your monitor is 1080p, which is basically what everyone is using nowadays. the size of the monitor and the "coolness" or whatever makes you say you are "just" using that monitor doesnt matter. all that matters is the resolution (when speaking about how difficult it will be for a graphics card to display on it)

the way i see it, a 22 inch 1080p monitor is exactly as demanding on your graphics card as a 30 inch 1080p monitor, because your graphics card has to draw the same number of pixels.

so basically the answer you are going to get in this thread is exactly the same as what you would get if you used the search button and read the first 5 posts that you found (plus a ton of opinions on which 580 you should get, which is basically preference)

+1 vote to MSI Lightning, awesome cooling, awesome performance, awesome Sli config. Get 2 3Gb cards for the ultimate experience. It'll probably last you years.

Listen, no one can tell how the game will run until it is actually released. Get the best card your budget will allow you and keep your fingers crossed.

Also. Budget?
My budget is about $1,750. I live in BC so i have to pay 12% tax...***
Ok I guess I have to rethink this because I thought that the step-up program was longer. With the same build and a gtx 580 SC DS is $1,750, after tax just under $2000.

i would NOT get 3GB cards. reviews have suggested that you never use more than the stock about of VRAM even at resolutions well above 1080p (unless you are running 2560x1600 with 32xAA and AF)

also, the higher density ram usually runs a little slower and costs the 3GB lightning a few FPS when running the same game at the same resolutions and same settings as a 1.5GB card.

so unless you plan on maxxing BF3 out on nvidia surround with maximum AA and AF, go with the 1.5GB card.

sorry, i hope that makes sense.

just get the vanilla 580



and there is a fantastic chance that you will get it to 800 core with minimal overvolting. mine does 900 on 1.05v and stock is 1.00v.

cheaper, the same, and if you can go through amazon there is no sales tax. win.

GTX 580 1.5Gb - single GPU card will be great at highest performance imo.

If not a AMD 6970 or GTX 570 Non-reference card second choice.

MSI GTX 480 Lightning would be my third suggestion.

yep, especially if you OC the 470 some more.

I was getting near 60 FPS, everything maxed with a 460 SOC in the alpha.

AMD has been twice as fast as Nvidia in BF3 so far. Go with AMD.
