i never believe the internet on these things
Im sorry dude dont mean to say this is inaccurate but it is. THERE IS NO WAY you played that at ultra with that monitor in your rig at its native resolution. I had a gts450 and my gtx560ti is way ahead of it in performance and ultra at 1920x1080 in the beta game lagged too much to really play. Sure I ran it, probably at average of 10-12fps though lol

keep in mind I had a 560ti at 1920x1080 play the beta on the setting below ultra, it ran very smooth and looked nice still. Im not sure what the difference is but a lot of people like the 460's since they are cheaper than the 560's and very similar.

I want to play that on ultra so I just ordered another 560ti to sli. Waiting on newegg so I can will call it today I hope!! 1 hour left before they close it lol

Very true, I just don't want to redo everything I guess. I feel lucky I didn't screw something up bad my first time.
OH NO

Well, you're going to have to take it apart again to install that aftermarket CPU cooler, so better now than never. Motherboard has to be removed from system completely, you need about 3-4 hands to get it all under control.

But if you prefer to spend another 250 bucks to get similar performance, be my guest.

I say wait and save your money. BF3 is going to be a hell of a lot different when it comes out. If you really want to have the amazing maxxed out settings spend the money on sli your 480 or get a 570/80. doesn't hurt to just wait and see what fps u get.

Hmm, maybe that's a good idea. See how I can run it first before deciding to do anything.
