the GTX 560 Ti is tempting. However SLi gtx 460 sounds doable but we both know they stopped making 768mb versions so i'd have to find it elsewhere not Newegg ugh!
I never drop below 60 FPS with my 460's and they are running stock.
I've never seen it touch anywhere in the 50's in the subway or outside.
running at max with 4xAA and HBAO and AF off

If I were you id keep your 460, then wait until the 600 series are out. Unless you need to max it out right away.

I think a 580 is a well suited card for the game, but im running 570 sli and have never had to worry about framerate on custom settings with everything turned up (post AA and some other settings arent actually maxed under the "ultra" setting)

i wouldnt get evga unless you have water cooling. their air coolers sucks. im running msi n460gtx hawk overclocked to 850 and i get about 40-60frames outside and higher inside metro. im using high settings btw. im guessing you have evga for your 460. my friend has sli 460 and his cards run REALLY HOT especially the top one. so i suggest you get another card and not sli with evga cuz thier coolers sucks. Get one of these imo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...%20%28Fermi%29 WAY later on when you feel like its not enough juice for your gaming needs. pop another one of these babies in for sli.

People keep saying this and it's a bit misleading because even if you buy a card that's capable of it, it doesn't mean it will definitely work. It's like saying "buy a 2500k it will overclock to 5GB".

AF off? Really? Don't you want details on grounds? I oughta try that one and see what happens. So you're running ultra with these settings? I bet your card is a 1gb?

i think BF3 is way to overrated in terms of graphics.


i played it now for about 3 days and i don't see anything special to it.



imo crysis 2 with dx11 and high res patch is much better looking


also the gameplay is very flawed, if the enemy play as a team and they are good, you won't literally see them 90% of the time and the most impressive of all is, all it takes is 1 or 2 bullet and your dead



as for the performance, your graphics card would be enough to play the game at high settings with very playable framerate
