Looking to upgrade or Xfire - Page 2

post #11 of 12
The 1gb limit is the reason i sold my 560ti sli and got a single 7970 with 3gb.
Even tho both card are awesome and give great performance the 1gb limited me from enabling any filters on bf3.
Every time i did it i had lots of stuttering and the cards memory was at 100%

now with the new card i can play on ultra with all filters on (not max tho) and have a smooth gameplay.
I can also see the game uses 1.7gb of the gpu memory.

Another plus is when i will want to upgrade all i need is another 79xx card because the 3gb i believe will last for 2 years.

I play crysis once a while and it always uses 1.3+gb so i don't think xfire would be the best option. Plus a year from now i can but another 79xx card and still be play to handle most of the games.
