Your running a 5850?

if your running a 560ti is it paired with another for sli?

There are very few cards that can max out any of those games. And the ones that can are the $500 ones.

I suppose it also depends on what your definition of proper framerate is. I'm happy with 30FPS or higher, so most games out there games can be maxed completely (GTA4, Crysis and Metro being the exceptions).

I'm running a 5850. It's irrelevant since Stefy talked about a single GTX 560 (which happens to perform similar to an HD 5850).

OP suggested a $300 setup (at least) that starts off in SLI (so possible SLI compatibility issues from the get-go) and possibly can't be upgraded later unless he ditches both cards and gets a new one. I wouldn't consider that future proof. I agree that it's good value for the money right now, but once he needs to upgrade, he'll be SOL.

When it comes to GPUs there is no such thing as "Future-proofing". The market just moves too quickly. I have a 560Ti at 1GHz Core and should be good for 2-3 years, I believe. It'll play most 1 year or older games at Max settings and get good FPS and should take most future games quite decently. I don't expect to be going lower than Medium/High settings within those 2-3 years.

I'm of the belief that the golden resolution for 560Ti's is 1680x1050, which is what I run at. Great viewing resolution (middle ground, if you will) and will provide excellent graphical performance for most games. Of course, there are exceptions like Metro and Crysis, but those games are more like benchmarks and don't represent the majority of games out there.

I would think that 2 560ti's in sli would be "pretty" future proof, depending on your definition of the word (how many years?), though I can not safely state as I am still in the 200GTX series of things.

That being said, I play at 1920x1080 and I can max out all games I play with my sli GTX260 core 216's at 780 core (I believe, at work right now). I will state that I had issues with Arkham Asylum during the Scarecrow parts until I put in an old 9600gso to take on physx. That put me back up to 40fps, which I am fine at. I dont have BF3 yet, but from the sounds of it it would eat my setup.

All in all, I would believe that 2 560ti's in sli would last quite some time (2-3.5 years). I am considering the same while leaving one 260 for physx. It may be worth it to wait to see the 700 series of things though.

Just my 2 cents

EDIT- I get around 40fps average among all games I play, some higer some lower avgs. Figured this could be useful for reference

See, my plan for this H61, i3 & GTX 560 Ti build is to move away from my current situation: An Acer Extensa 5220. Intel X3100 Graphics, Celeron 560 Processor. I'm 21 now, and my whole life I have been playing games from CS 1.6 @ 1024 x 768 right through to WoW @ 800 x 600 and Oblivion @ 640 x 480 everything low. So the GTX 560 Ti is my way of stepping away from akward 0 - 30 fps 640 x 480 everything low, to 30 - 60 fps 1920 x 1080 med - high settings. What I mean by the dirty words called future proof, is my way of actually asking:

How long will my graphics card last until it drops to 640 x 480 everything low.

The reason why, is because I still don't know what's the fuss about playing games at high resolutions 30+ fps everything high. Thus I decided to go the budget route too: H61 Mobo, i3 Processor & GTX 560 Ti. Later on I'll upgrade to the Core i5 2500K or it's Ivy Bridge equivalent and a Maximus Gene Z (Ivy Bridge) board for LAN parties and all that.

Oh and just for reference, I'll be getting the Gainward GTX 560 Ti Phantom

oh, DUDE!! why didn't you say so sooner?? In that case it'll be YEARS before a 560Ti will be THAT obsolete. I completely know what you're talking about. I used to use my laptop for any kind of "gaming", if you could even call it that, before I built this PC. The difference you'll see between what you have now and the 560Ti will be astronomical! It was mindblowing to me. The 560Ti is nVidia's value/performance powerhouse, so you can't go wrong. It should team up ok with a 2100 (i3), but I believe it's best complemented by a 2500K, but like you said, you'll get that later. My build you see below is a $1000 beast. The very best in value/performance that I could come up with and I love every part of it. Just grab it and never look back. You'll love your new PC. You should be able to play most games from med-high settings, 30FPS+ at 1080p for years to come. thumb.gif

I warn you from experience, though. Once you experience the excellence of 60FPS+ you'll NEVER want to go below. biggrin.gif

This man speaks the truth, I've also used my laptop for gaming before building this PC (a pain btw, all of my games started getting really choppy after a few minutes, I think it was CPU/GPU throttling on the laptop to prevent overheating).

Also OP, grab the 2GB Phantom version if you can(which is the one I have), 1GB VRAM can become a bottleneck in BF3 on ultra or Skyrim if you play with lots of texture mods.

This is waaaay true, speaking from experience. I have a few mods on my Skyrim and after a bit of gaming the lag begins. Also my FPS drop a lot with the mods I got and that is only 1 560ti but its the 1GB Vram.
