after doing all the config tweaks listed here http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/BioShock_Infinite

it runs great. I got it all maxed with no aa and shadows on high and I get 48-60+ fps usually. It may dip into low 40s or high 30s but rarely and only if something crazy is going on.

Before the tweaks listed in that link above, the mouse felt like CRAP and it stuttered like crazy and fov still wasn't good enough, but all those tweaks fixed it up nicely

I know this feel. I am also having a problem with it crashing A LOT.

So...I'm gonna finally pony up and buy a Crossover 27Q-P LED in the next month or so. I plan on playing BF3 on my 480. I talked about this with Descadent before, but if I keep everything on low for now, does anyone else want to chime in on weather or not I will be able to average 60fps or more?

Anyone want to link me to adapters that I will need?

Wait...you can overclock that monitor's refresh rate? Im such a newb, but can you do this with any monitor and a 670?

My cards are only 980mhz stock, so that gives you some idea(i do slightly OC for Crysis 3, the others, no) There are many 670's that have better clock speeds, and are good value. Obviously SLI 680's or 690's would be better, but are quite pricey. My SLI was around $ 750 a few months ago, so there is better value around. In hindsight I probably rushed my decision, and should've waited a little, but I am still extremely happy.
What would you have gotten if you waited? Cause I am wanting to start fresh

Depends on the monitor. Just set a custom resolution with the refresh rate of your choice in the Nvidia control panel. Some displays won't go above 60Hz, some will go to 85Hz or so. Obviously talking about monitors sold as 60Hz displays. The Koreans are tested to 96Hz or so, some places test higher. Very few are guaranteed to run 120Hz.

Make sure you are using DisplayPort or Dual DVI for best results as they are capable of higher pixel clock frequency rates than HDMI.

And it's not technically overclocking. Back in the CRT days no one called switching from 60Hz to 75Hz (or higher, I remember running at 100Hz) overclocking, it was just setting the display to a higher refresh rate.

I've got mine set for 75Hz and 72Hz, really great for 25p and 24p content, no pulldown. biggrin.gif

You could XFire a pair of 7950s for under $600 and have 2 copies each of Crysis 3 and BioShock Infinite to enjoy or sell and bring the price down further.

Well jeez If I'd known that a few months ago my 120Hz monitor would have been sold by now. Ehem, anyone want to buy an Alienware AW2310? tongue.gif

yeah, get my head around it. But then the cards share that so they use around 1gb each?

I went with a Dell U2713HM because I got a really good deal on it which closed the price gap between the korean monitors and the Dell. Also, I get a warranty on my monitor and a pixel perfect guarantee. However, I heard a computer shop called microcenter in the U.S. has their own model called the Auria and it has a proper warranty (IIRC). There are also a few offering from Samsung and HP, I believe, but they are fairly expensive.

As for GPU, price/performance AMD is typically better and you will get the extra Vram without having to spend more cash like on the Nvidia side. Personally, from what I have heard about AMD (driver support, Microstutter) it is not the option I would personally take. But hey that's just me, if you have had experience with AMD go that route and you'll be perfect with a 79750/7970. On the Nvidia side, I think you will have to spring for a 4GB GTX 670 in sli. But that's to max out the games. If you're ok with lowered settings, grab one 670 and OC it; when you feel you need to upgrade you have the option to SLI. From results I have seen on benchmarks, it seems that 3GB gtx 660ti's in SLI are a good option, but I have heard that you may run into problems with its memory interface (?) being so low (192-bit). If you're comfortable with AMD, it does seem like they are the better choice for higher resolution gaming.

I may have a slight bias towards Nvidia, but I am just passing on the knowledge I have acquired so far.
I think I will need to go with a Korean monitor, cause of price. I want to save a couple hundred dollars on the monitor, but I'm afraid of the warranty issue. I also don't mind dead pixels I have like 4 on a droid razr and never really mind. They are way too small to notice for me, really. As far as Nvidia and AMD I have heard the same plus if I were to change to AMD I would have to drive sweep and make sure that I eliminate all drivers. Sounds like a big hassle. I am thinking of SLI with either two 670s or two 680's just not sure which route I want to go. I like single gpu and I do want to max out games.
