In battlefield 3 my cpu was maxed out at 99% load on all cores at 4 ghz my gpus ran at 65-70%. My i5 at stock speed iam getting 60+ fps in lions arch in GW2 and my gpus in BF3 are at 99% usage and cpu is at 60% roughly. As far as 1 gig vram i have noticed no limit except in BF3. To the OP i would suggest a single powerful card to the member with the i5 i say go for it you will not regret it.
Right now in BF3 I have 70%+ usage on my cpu with no vsync.Around 55-60 with vsync on.Gpu always at 99% with vsync off.I run BF3 at high textures,mesh,terrain quality,everythinh else on medium with AA Post at medium too at 1680x1050 with stable 60fps.Can you run BF3 on ultra with like 2xMSAA with stable 60fps.Btw,is it possible to experience micro steuterring with single Gpu?My game doesnt feel smooth under like 75-80fps with vsync off.Qith vsync ON its completely different,buterry smooth but because of my gpu running at around 80% and sometimes it dips below 60...Is there any way to have Vsync but still have your GPU always at 99%?

Vysnc limits your FPS at 60 FPS. So if it only takes 60% GPU usage to maintain that FPS then that's what it's gonna be at, not 99%. That should make sense..

Also the reason it may feel smooth with vsync on is because your at a constant 60 FPS, but with it off you are above that.. If you have a 120Hz monitor then it may feel choppy because you are noticing the different in frames, but if you don't I'm not sure.

@conzilla Thanks i think i wont buy a second Videocard wink.gif

Next time i wil upgrade my CPU i wil look into bottlenecks more , but for now il take ur advice on having just a single GPU setup



Also guys i read ur last couple of posts u talk about Vsync and monitor refresh rates.

I have a 75Hz Monitor and i always put Vsync on! good or bad for performance?

That article shows that in the majority of games at that resolution the processor is doesn't make that big of a difference in fps. You stated yourself in a different thread that the 7950 is close to crossfire 6970's. So if the fps differences are that negligible then the same would go for crossfire 6870s.

rquinn, i agree with you. i agree that some games are more gpu dependent. there are times when i even forget which rig i am using playing games. i use all my rigs for gaming (well except the one with the sempron). i had the 7950 in my amd rig for a awhile and my fps doubled in all my games that i played at only 4GH Quad. btw, op uses 1080.

but what i don't agree about is articles that are a year old and used as reference.

75 with vsync on? why not 60? vsync normally pegs your fps to 60. 60 fps works well with 60Hz, am i right?
