You made a thread about this before, you cant get eyefinity on the cheap. The two do not go together tongue.gif Unless you want awfull frames. The very minimum to get decent frames with 3 screens is crossfire 6970.

eye finity and bf3 arent very friendly and it isnt amd fault!maybe if you go 1080i route but even then i doubt it!
check the web you ll find lot of people that had to put huge amount to have decent frame rate,very often max was 1080i ,and very often they had to live stream at very very low setting.so sadly eye finity period and bf3 isnt an easy job!and even then you probably will be like:dam thats it?where the rest of the fps?

are you referring to me? i did read. and i told op to try it first, then upgrade. op will find out then if the 78XX or 79XX series will be a better alternative than the 6970.

never played bf3, so pardon my ignorance.

but in any case, i recommend just wait for ivy to be released.

Your Q6600 will be enough, just OC it. 3.0Ghz+ is enough. But that GPU will not be good enough for eyefinity. if you want a 3 monitor setup for BF3, you will be spending close $300+ on GPU(s) for only medium graphics.
IMO if you want to run BF3 with medium settings, you should stick with your current GPU and only use 1 screen.

^this. and in this setup - intel is a better alternative. and it depends if op wants to fight a battle (kill enemies) or enjoy the scenery. both - then go intel.

That would be a wasteful upgrade to go from a C2Q to a quad core phenom. It would be a jump but not enough to justify a board swap, OS re-install, etc. And if you are going hi res, you will want one of the 2 gig 7850 or 7870 cards. They will suffice for a medium settings eyefinity setup.

I run a 960T unlocked to X6 @4.0Ghz and SLI GTX480s and I get on average 60~120fps and no bottlenecking. I'd say it would be an excellent Idea to grab a 960T. thumb.gif

EDIT:
I run BF3 on Ultra, although I must say if you have the money go Intel. biggrin.gif

Fate,

have you tried playing the game with the 960T as a quad? the problem is - op might expect the 960T to unlock.
