I have a problem going w/ overkill parts, this is one reason why I am going MATX to help prevent this, but its so tempting, especially if DX11 games become heavily dependent on tessellation. Chances are I would also have to upgrade my PSU from my 500W Earthwatts, which I don't like to have to do >.<
Okay, this *might* help you... or not.

One HD5770 was not enough for me in BFBC2 singleplayer, max settings @ 1600x900. Not a particularly high resolution. With two HD5770 in corssfire, it's enough for singleplayer. Crysis, it's *just* enough.

Any other game I have doesn't even come close to maxing out these cards, and only slightly stress one HD5770 @ max settings in 1600x900.


I hope this helps (and that you are not a max-setting-addict).

I want to be able to play the multiplayer on DX11 w/ near max settings on a single 5770 at 1920 x 1080.

If I recall, HBAO kills your framerates dramatically. I maxed everything out @ 1920x1080 except HBAO with my GTX 260 (comparable to an HD 5770) and I get pretty great framerates. No numbers, but I definitely don't notice any lag.

luck.

Maybe you will get it to playable (sacrafice HBAO?), but I couldn't on my 1080p HDTV. I'd go for a HD5850, at this point. Yeah, games may use extra tesselation, but none of the level of a tech demo that has not stayed much in line with other DX11 games (well, other than Metro 2033, which is a TWIMTBP "game," anyhow).

yeah, but I am a number magnet. I must have them, and must have more of them

It's a sad addiction.

But you are correct, with no HBAO, everything runs really quickly, and smoothly. With HBAO, only my xfire setup had enough brute force to drive it.

K well i'm about to pull the trigger but have about $30 to spare, anybody got any idea on what I could use that on?

Also would an Athlon II X4 or Phenom II X2 fare better in gaming?

Could you possibly unlock the X2? Anyhow, the Athlon II X4 fares better, due to it's 4 cores, and the fact most computers are loaded with background programs (even steam counts - and the ATi drivers, which are now multithreaded).

But the L3 cache of the PII, combined with a core unlock, is the biggest gainer. A dual core doesn't cut it outside of sterile test machines.

On bfbc2 I get about 70 frames average with two 5770s stock clocked, with my 550be unlocked 4 cores at 3.6ghz. Thats with Everything max and 4xAA(maybe 8..its been a while). 16AF.. in multyplayer.

I would only get around 29-36 frames on single player with 1 card..It struggled for the most part with my 1900x1200.

No the MSI 890GX doesn't have core unlocking features and since SB850 had core unlocking locked, there is no way unless MSI releases one w/ a BIOS update.

So the Athlon II then? Also anything else that I could use to help gaming performance? Any PCI-E add-on cards or anything? Would a NIC help frames?

not frames. a tenth of a milisecond of latency is shaved, compared to a cheap onboard (a low end Realtek was the comparison unit for the one review site that did test this... using software tools ).

but the Athlon II X4 will be your biggest boost, at this point. GPU can always be better, but it seems you are rather set in that department.
