The 2nd 5850 idea is good if you can get a cheap used one.
This is good advice.

OP What clocks are you running your 5850 at? If you can get the core up to around 950 and memory up to 4800 or higher you will be able to exceed the performance of a 5870. Try that first and see if the performance is good in that game and if not grab a cheap 5850 and OC them both to 5870 levels.

I ended up getting a 560ti. It's not that expensive and it'll play Skyrim well (I hope). I think it was a good decision since Im more worried about Skyrim than about BF3......but I think a 560ti will be ok for skyrim don't you?

Yeah, should be fine for Skyrim.

However, if you plan on playing any other titles like Battlefield 3 then you will need more vram. (Assuming you got the 1GB card.)

But if they end up giving us DX11 and such for Skyrim in the future, then you may not be able to run it with all the eye-candy turned on.

Still very, very, playable though.

I saw people were getting something like 45 fps with Max Settings on BF3 which I thought was pretty good. If they turn on DX11 features on Skyrim I think my card should be right at where it's at. Worst case Scenario I didn't spend that much anyways.

That after Viagra reception sexual stimulation is necessary. The beginning of action of Viagra individually: at third of men the effect comes in 14 minutes, at half - in 20 minutes, at the overwhelming majority (more than 70 %) - in 30 minutes. From the moment of reception Viagra operates 4-6 hours.
If you want to gain faster effect, Viagra is recommended to be accepted on an empty stomach as the food, especially fat, increases time of absorbability (mastering) of almost any medical product.
Viagra does not co-operate with alcohol, therefore alcohol (in the reasonable
Quantities) does not reduce efficiency of Viagra. At the same time it is not necessary to remind that abusing alcohol in itself has a pernicious effect on function.

should of waited for the game to actually come out and try it then decide. oh well... the GTX 560 Ti should handle skyrim at max settings with no problems.

Where did you see this?

Surely you weren't seeing this with people with 560 Ti's.

Even with my 3GB 580 running @ 950/1900/2200 with everything on Ultra I was pulling 55/65 FPS and sometimes dropping down to mid 40's..

Skyrim on the other hand will not be as demanding and you should be fine in that department.

And don't get me wrong, the 560 Ti is an amazing card, and in SLI they're beasts.
