What card should I get?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Right now, I have the 5670 1GB. Its a good card, but I am looking for an upgrade before BF3 comes out, and I really want to play that game at 1920x1080 with decent settings. So what card should I get? My budget is around 150-200 dollars on newegg. Thanks!

In that range you could pick up a 6870 easily. Or wait for Southern Islands and see how that turns out.

I say wait until the hd6950 2gb comes down into your price range or at least until you can save up a little more.

if BF3 is as demanding as people are hyping it up to be, i dont' think a 6870 will play it at settings he would be happy with

I guess I'l wait a month and save up for the 6950 2GB. Now, can that be unlocked to a 6970?

Battlefield 3 doesn't support DirectX 9 so those with DX 9 cards may need upgrades.
