1920 x 1080 Ultra 4X MSAA

HD 7970 Ghz - avg 65 fps min 48 fps
HD 5870 - avg 22 fps min 11 fps

look at the min fps on HD 7970 Ghz. greater than 4x the min fps on HD 5870. even with a 1.8x scaling the HD 5870 CF will struggle to max out BF4 at 1080p.

Go for the asus r9 280x . best reviewed and quietest r9 280x. tough to find in stock. another option is HIS R9 280X iceq x2

if you are on a tight budget get the sapphire hd 7950. remember you can easily overclock this card to 1100 mhz and match HD 7970 ghz performance

Thanks a lot man. Lots of great info there. I am in the process of warrantying my HD5870. The fan is buzzing and whining. Not sure just yet what they will send me as the 5870 is discontinued. I am on a super budget so its in the air what I will do.

Thanks to all of you. I have been out of the market for several years and appreciate all you help.
