Whats good to up?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I upgrade once in a blue moon. I just played the Bf3 beta Caspian map... I would like to max out bf3 because of this. 1900res/ all ult minus probably somethings unsure.....ambient occlusion probably. Looking for never dipping below 30fps.

I have intel i7 870
4gs of ddr3 ram
gtx 460 1g version


Been reading for hours but not sure what to do here. Sli 460 sounds like it gives a large boost from what I been reading. Sli 2 460 be all I need?

Currently on Caspian at high or ult if that is a real setting or not minus aa and af plus ambient occlusion off. Getting about 32-55avg with dips into the 30s or high 20s. Have not tested much. Game really needs aa even with 1900 resolution. Full Screen by the way

Any suggestions ? Or should I wait for the game to come out and performance reviews to appear?

id wait for the official release. if it goes how BC2 did our gpus will do better with the final realease+new drivers (10-25% performance boost over beta)

its hard to say what will happen with the final release. 460 sli may do what your single does in beta, considering the lack of high res textures as of rite now. id just wait and see the benchmarks of the release, and if you already have a copy on the way, youll be the best judge of wether or not youll need an upgrade.

Thats what I figured...

For anyone owning a gtx 460 did some more tests after a defrag.. fps stays mostly avg 40-50 staying at least in the 30s. This is all high/ult or whatever with 2 aa and 8af at 1900res no amb. Pretty decent for a $150 buck card.
