Upgrading from a gtx 580

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Need some help. I have a 1440p monitor and my 580 wont cut it for bf4. I'm lost as to what to buy that would be a good upgrade. I refuse to spend 1k on a card. I saw that the radeon 7990 is around 600.00. Not sure if I'll be able to game with it. My 580 gets about 25 fps at 1440. I want my upgrade to get atleast 50+ fps...

i saw a couple 7870/7950's averaging 60fps with drops down to 30. (not sure of settings)

I would imagine a 7990 would work fine.

the new 290x coming out is going to be sweet and should be in the proper price range:

I'm waiting till tuesday so radeon can release everything. I'm hoping for a price drop on the 7990 or nvida to make some price drops.

580 on medium preset will run BF4 at 1440p without much issues.

Consider this to yourself, is it worth the price in upgrading to a card which justifies an upgrade?
Overclock that 580, and see performance really ramp up.

Or you could play at 1080p with a mix of high/ultra.

Otherwise look at 7970/GTX 770 or even the 780 as a upgrade, do not settle for anything less.





Little difference between high and medium in BF4, and MSAA murders GPU's in BF4, which is not exactly needed as FXAA does a good job.

GTX 480 highly OC'd 922mhz core 4144mhz memory on high preset. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
