GPU for Battlefield 3 - Page 3

post #21 of 23
At least a gtx 460/5870. I recommend a 5 series gpu such aa 560 ti, because they run MUCH cooler.

That was before he realised I have gtx 570 Sli

I think a 560 would easily turn all the settings too max, but if you want too max out AA and AF etc. then maybe a 570 would be needed. A 580 would probably be the perfect card if you want too max it, its what they used on the demo rigs at E3.
I agree, getting a really expensive GPU like GTX 580 and 590 is pretty pointless if your going to get rid of it a year later. Go for the GTX 570, you'll be just fine with it on a 1080p monitor. Unless you want to absolutely be sure to max everything out, then a GTX 580 is fine.

If I get a gtx 580 or 590 or something like that I wouldn't be replacing it in a year because that would just be a waste of money. My thought was too get a cheaper card like a 570 and then replace it with a 6xx series card using the step-up program, but I was informed that it only lasts for 3 months. So now I'm back to square one really.
