Best Gpu I can get on budget for BF3 - Page 5

Excluding the DX10/11 difference, a 6670 is roughly equivalant to a 9800GT; the recommended setttings for that card (from Nvidia) is 1280 x 1024 with low quality.

1080P sir is wishful thinking.

Which is why I said the highest res I could get around 30fps. For now I can live with 1280 x 1024

which is what my "wishful thinking" remark was directed towards.

Regardless, a 9800GT or 6670 would be the way to go.

If you're playing on the screen you have listed in you rig you won't notice the difference between 1080p and 720p so you could easily change your resolution...

I haven't looked too much into Nvidia cards but on a lower budget an ATI 5850 for $130-$160(on OCN) isn't bad.

(Just woke up from a nap so please excuse any mistakes. x_x)

Edit #1:
Sorry if i'm suggesting something out of budget

Edit #2:
I had alot of the same woes when getting advice myself. I'd personally recommend waiting until you can get something better as I spent $20-30 on a few stupid things just to get me by and now I really regret it. (Like having an AMD Athlon II 250 I used for a week, 9600GT I used for a few hours, a crappy $15 heatsink I never used and a ton of fans i'll never get to use either.)

If you need a PSU, I'm selling my 750w Corsair. I only mention that because I'm 15min from Escondido.

I recommend a 6790. I picked mine up a couple weeks ago for $89 and this thing kicks some serious butt/$. 6 months ago these cards did not make sense when they were priced within $10 of a 6850, but now they cost half of one of those, and two 6790s crossfired perform neck and neck with two 6850s. The 6790 is actually a 6800 series BARTs GPU with a 256 bit memory interface, and are known to scale above 90% when Crossfired compared to ~80% for most 6000 series cards. I am going to be getting another one of these in the near future myself, which will yield somewhere in the performance range of a (single) 6970 for half the price. Having a 6790 and a 6970 in the same series is about the worst naming regiment I have ever seen. They should have called these cards something like a 6830 instead of giving them a 6700 series moniker.Here is a good breakdown of what the 6790 can do, especially in Crossfire.

I ran a 6870 on a Q8400 for a year almost go with that. it will do 1080p with no problems. I think their under $190. I personaly wouldn't go with anything lower than that. Especialy for BF3

$90 for 16fps doesn't make any sense. Spend $40 more and you can get that can run it at 70fps at all max with non-bottlenecked CPU of course(Mid 30s with a 3.1ghz dual core).

I apologize if I'm mistaking what you're saying. I'm interpreting it as $90 for 1 card and not two. If it were two it'd be a different story.

^ agreed for the 6790. Plus they overclock very well, so I can tell you these cards run at 6850 or 6870 performance when OC'ed.
