Okay, cheapest GPU I can buy, that will MAX Bad Company 2 @ 1080P, but with...

post #1 of 103
Thread Starter 
..."frames left over". By that I mean, I don't want a gpu that can just max it at like 28 frames, that won't cut it. Preferably constantly 50-60 would be fantastic.

Thanks. No brand preference, however I would rather get links to cards with good warranties.

Reference 5850 is exactly what you need. Overclock it and you are set.

Yeah, your going to need at least a 5850 or 470 for that. I would highly recommend the 5850 over the 470 though. Not because I like ati, but that it consumes less power and has pretty good oc potential. Also, it's cheaper.

If your looking for a specific card to buy, the asus directcu 5850 is a great choice. Great oc'er and pretty quiet. It's an awesome card. Retails for 320 I believe.

if you REALLY want to max it out, you gotta go GTX 480/GTX 480 SLi or 5870 Crossfire. there was a few places in the game that dropped below 50 fps on a single 5870. but that was with the 10.3 drivers so i dont know if that has been resolved.

That is bullcrap. I can max out BC2 with a single 5770. If you have a budget go for a 5770. It has Dx 11 and good scalling. In CF it is better than 5870.

You are not going to be having any "frames" left over with a dual core, even if it is at 4GHz. Bad Company 2 needs a quad core to play. People with dual cores seriously bottleneck their GPUs in this game.

everyone has their own definition of ''maxed out'' and a 5850 or a 470 should do you real good. you should be able to get 50-60fps

Doesn't usually MAX mean maximum? That is all possible settings on highest. If so than as I am saying 5770 is enough to handle this at about 50-70 fps. I get around 120 with CF of them.

*EDIT* I don't know why I get this high with my cards, but from what I can read 5770's reach around 40 fps. Sorry for my bad, but as I say I know what I get.

The game is very CPU dependent, plus resolution matters. I could max the game out if I set the resolution mad low. (but that's not really being fair)

I would think that the limited 128bit bus of the 5770 would start to lose out at higher resolutions. It really depends on the resolution this will be played at by the OP.
