I am looking to play bf4 1080p with a R7970 lightning however will it be enough? I know the video recorded for bf4 ultra was with a 7990 which is a tad expensive for me put the 7970 lightning cant be far behind though. So is there only a 1-5 fps difference between 7970,7970 ghz and 7970 lightning?

Yes.


Is it worth so much more money? How much more it costs?
