As for BF3...empirical data is always the best. Let me test it right now.
[edit] - well, on seine crossing with like 30 people, in the middle of combat, I'm getting about 80+ fps. I know with the same settings, I would usually float above 60 (typically sub 70) on larger caspian, or wake island (my personal favorite).
As for the settings, I'm on full ultra with 2xMSAA, at 1080p. I have heard that putting AA to post, instead (I believe in CCC), will yield better fps, so if you were having issues once you upgraded that monitor, that would be an option to keep fps locked.
[edit edit] - Yeah. Lower 60s upper 50s with everything maxed in outdoor whatnot. One thing though, is that I'm getting some minor screen tearing with this RC11 driver, which I wasn't when I was on 12.2/12.3. It's really not an issue because I don't play a lot of BF3 anymore, but I have a feeling if I were to look deeper, I'd probably upgrade to a different driver.

Thanks for the info smile.gif I'll see. The RMA is still listed as "testing" - hopefully they don't send me another DCII, I've requested that they don't but it might be policy

Just pulled the trigger on a 2nd waterblock.

I think I will go with the HIS brand again, however tempted by asus as there is an unlocked volts bios floating around. How have the asus cards been performing guys?

Can you run Heaven 3.0 at the same setting.

Interesting scores, I have lower Min FPS andlower Max FPS, but have higher score and FPS.

This run was at the same card clocks and Heaven setting.( but I used version 3.0, I wonder if it makes a difference ?)

Also using an i7 950 @ 4GHz with HT off.

I will do a run now with HT on and same settings

One card is under water, still waiting on seconded block, supplier messed up order rolleyes.gif, but sorted now and it should be here tomorrow.

u could always stop your computer from going to sleep by disabling it. There is another way where you enter ur BIOS to disable some option I cant remember exactly but some dude on amazon in 1 of the hd 7970 reviews had the same issue and solved it this way.

I had this issue, I told the monitor to never shut off and it seemed to resolve the issue.

I am assuming you were having the same issue where when you let the computer idle and you'd come back, you couldn't get it to wake back up and have to do a hard reboot. At first I thought it was the SSD but I had all sleep/hibernate settings turned off so it didn't make sense. So i thought maybe it had to do with the cards going into some sort of suspend mode. So I went into the power settings and told it to never put the monitor to sleep and just put a screen saver on it instead. I haven't had any issues since.

Ya setting the computer to not sleep doesn't fix it but I am interested in the bios setting you speak of. Could you possibly find the review you were talking about as 7970 review is kind of vague considering the amount of cards.

The 7970 at 1260/6200 will do what you want (x4MSAA) and maintain mostly 60fps on the vanilla maps,with a few dips to mid-low 50's here and there but generally playable. But the B2K maps will see hefty dips to mid 40's with x4MSAA and feel quite laggy in those moments,

My compromise is to run x2MSAA combined with SMAA_ultra injector (ingame post process off of course)
This is 1080p and all other settings maxed.
IQ is great and textures are sharp now that the post process AA is off and SMAA is being used instead.
SMAA does its wonders on most stuff & X2MSAA just does enough to clear up the jaggies in motion.

With this I keep 60fps in all Vanilla maps, and some dips to mid 50's in B2k maps... but it stays smooth and un-noticeable.

Its the dips below 50's and into the 40's that made the game laggy for me and with x4MSAA even oc'd at 1260/6200 you will still feel a bit of lag occasionally.

I'd say with the 7950 you'd be fine for x2MSAA though, (without the SMAA which takes around 5fps hit ) in fact that is what I was running with my 580 3GB at 900mhz and it was mainly smooth gameplay.
