You mentioned that you were able to get the GTX 570 for 231USD, I would say if you have added 70 more bucks and got the GTX 660 Ti 2GB you would have almost 70-85% of that GTX 570 performance, cooler card, quiter, uses less power and also have 2GB of Vram instead of just 1280 MB

For $300 the 7950 is much faster than the 660ti in most cases, especially once overclocked, the 660ti has very little overclocking headroom.

<--- 660ti owner.

The only reasons I went with the 660ti over the 7950 was 1.) I use my GPUs for folding, and 2.) It came with Borderlands 2 for free.

And since the 570 is faster than 470, & 660 Ti is slower than 670 then the gap will be much lower. maybe 15-25% increase.
The only game the GTX 670 really smokes the GTX 470 is Crysis 2 (I was getting 30-35 fps in some parts compared to 65-70 fps with the GTX 670) but that because of the improved tessellation performance I guess.

I think he meant 70 percent of the performance of y card when compared to x card

Noob question. I have a dell ultrashap u24inch monitor and just got a Evga 560ti sc 1024mb 256bit card.

2 questions, 1) when ppl say 'playing at 1080p' what does that mean. My monitor is set at 1900x1280.

2) how and why does 1gb of VRAM get eaten by bf3. What will be my issues when running bf3 on my 560ti 1gb with 1900x1280 monitor settings

Thx.

1) "Playing at 1080p" basically means playing the game at the resolution of 1900x1080. I think you made a mistake with your resolution. It's most likely 1900x1080 as well.

2) Your GTX 560 Ti should be able to play BF3 fine, but there may occasionally be slowdowns due to the 1GB of VRAM. Slowdowns typically occur in maps with many textures, particles, players, etc. Playing with lowered AA/ MSAA and maybe lowering a few other settings should prevent slowdowns, or at least make they occur less frequently.

Oops I meant 1920x1200. So that is considered better than 1080.

My 560ti should ultra bf3 for the most part on that resolution yea?
