Hey guys!

Im about to order parts for a new PC, but before i do that, i need to know if this rig will be good enough to run BF3 on Ultra (Multiplayer), and GTA IV

Intel Core i7-3770K 3,5Ghz
8GB DDR3 1600
EVGA Geforce 570GTX (1280MB)

Let me know ! smile.gif

Well, Tomorrow there should be the GTX 670 launch, maybe should look at the price wink.gif

On what resolution will you play?


By the way, what price the GTX 570? cause you could maybe grab GTX 580 for cheap, for the GTX 670, should be available soon wink.gif

Well i already have the GTX570 smile.gif But my poor old CPU is bottlenecking it.

I play at a 1440x900 Resolution smile.gif

you should kill those games. specially at this resolution. i was told BF3 needs ~1.5gb of vram to run on ultra @ 1080p. not sure how much it will require to run @ the resolution you have given. well since you already have the 570 just try it and see how it runs. make sure you get the latest nvidia drivers to have the highest performance of your cards. good luck.

well, this will be fine. I play BF3 in 1680x1050 ultra no AA with an HD6950 1gb wink.gif (now 1920x1080, but didn't tried BF3 since)

You will be fine wink.gif

It runs pretty smooth actually. There is no diffrence in terms of performance between Low and Ultra. Probally because of the bottleneck.

I play 1440x990, Vsync on., everything on Ultra, 4x MSAA with 20-30 FPS, on Kharg with 64 Players.

At the moment i have the Q6600 Quad Core which is about to die on me.

Playing 2560x1440 on my GTX570 - although MSAA is off. Runs smooth

Wait for the 670. You will not only future proof your rig, but also max out easily (less stress on system). I haven't used the i7 3770k, but it OC's well (although hot) and get some Corsair Vengeance (1600 Mhz or more) and it should run beautifully. biggrin.gif

I already have the GTX570. Ordered that card about a month ago.
Performance is great. but its being bottlenecked by the CPU. And probally low amount of ram
