New Graphics Card to Play BF3 Ultra

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, resolution is 1360x768, want to be able to play BF3 at ultra. Preferably a single card, that would be future proof in regards to ability to SLI/Crossfire when more power is needed. Also a 2gb version would be nice, since more games like Crysis 2 seem to be requiring that kind of vram.

at that low resolution, a 570 should do fine i guess?

Even a GTX 560 Ti my GTX 570 maxes it out @ (1680X1050) w/ Ultra no MSAA @ 60+ fps

My opinion? Buy an HD monitor instead. Play the game on High settings.

Have you tried the beta with your card at that resolution? I would think you'd be close to maxing it out at such a small resolution.

A GTX480 will do you fine. And they do run for that price range.

Have you tried the beta with your setup? I'm curious, as I'm looking to make a second rig with similar specs and curious on the performance.

Any heat issues on the 480?

Additionally, any good ATI cards around here? Would prefer to stick there.

@JMCB Beta is a bit odd. 2/3 of the games I get 60+FPS (Probably 68 average) on default medium config. However in the same areas I get 60+ FPS, some of my sessions get only 30-40 at all times. There's no correlation to the section of the map, and generally until I leave the server it'll stick at one end of the dichotomy, no changing or switching, and no in between.
