post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have a MSI 7970 coming tomm, I have a palit GTX570 platium. My question is, will is see a huge diffrence in my gaming? I play BF3 alot at 1080. I hope i can max it out. Did make a good choice?

Honestly, probably not that big of a difference to be worth 600$, unless you're a seriously hardcore gamer. Or if you play on 3 monitors

It won't be a catastrophic difference, but yes you should see good improvement.

I think you would have been better going with another GTX 570. You could have saved a bit of money and gotten better performance over the 7970.

Well i had 2 570's and for some reason in sli bf3 wasn't having it, plus 3gb over 1.28, I think is going to be better, I hear BF3 uses alot of vram, plus the 7970 uses less power and less heat.

Yes that is true. The extra VRAM definitely helps. I can attest to that. biggrin.gif

I run 1080P with 120Hz and the 7970 is just amazing in BF3. You will love the card. I just figured since the extra 570 was a cheaper route, that might have been more cost effective. But I didn't know you had two. tongue.gif
