Why not swap out that 670 for a 770 given that the 770 is gonna have a price drop soon? with that you'd be able to max those games pretty comfortably at 1080p

Thanks for the reply when do you thin the 770 will have a price drop and why and will the 670 be able to do it anyway?

Thanks

The price dropped because AMD released their cards so nvidia wanted to keep competitive prices. BTW the 770 is close to the 680 in terms of gaming performance.

Yep, the 770 is essentially an overclocked 680 :D

The 670 will not stay above 60fps at 1080 ultra at all times. If thats what you're after, need to go bigger especially for bf4.

Now, if you dont mind trading 4xmssa for antialiasing post high you can get there.

I am waiting for the price drop in the UK as it hasn't happened it. Hopefully it will happen soon. Thanks for the support. :D

In BF4 there's a setting called antialiasing post, he means that if you turn off msaa and just use that setting, the 670 would be fine

Do you think the 770 would be able to do it with msaa?

It's a fair bit more powerful so it should probably do 2xMSAA at least, I'm not too sure though (I never use AA :D )

Which graphics card do you use? And what if I overclock it will it be able to use msaa or 2xmsaa

I use a 760, you could try your hand at overclocking and it should be able to push higher aa after that, I'd check up some overclocking guides before that though (using MSI afterburner and whatnot)

Yes it is good for gaming. Honestly the i7 is almost overkill for gaming. If I were you, I would get an i5 CPU and put a little more money with it to buy a gtx 780. What monitor resolution are you using? EDIT: At 1080p that should be fine.

Thanks for the advice I will probably be using 1080

Yep, as long as you're not into video editing/rendering/photoshop an i5 4670k and a GTX 780 (once price drops there) would be a much better choice for gaming

I am thinking of starting a gaming youtube channel. Do you still think it is a better choice? I think that it is but 2 things. i5 is getting old and the price difference between the gtx 770 and the gtx 780 is bigger than i7 and i5.

The i5 is not really "getting old", they release a new i5 the same time (approx.) that they release an i7 (in other words, it is not like an i7 is the new version of the i5)... IMO it depends on how many videos/how long they are you will be uploading.

If you want to start a gaming channel, the 780 is the way to go, just wait for that price drop, i5 isn't getting old as logox mentioned, heck the 2500k from years ago still kicks ass

What if i am going to upload once a day 20-30 minutes?

Then I would get the gtx 780 and render the files at night or some time when you would not be on your computer. The i7 will be faster in that area but not by THAT much. Plus, if you will be recording gameplay with something like fraps it reduces your fps in games so the 780 would be an even better choice.

What is the difference between the 680 and 770 if they both have 1536 cores and are 2GB?

So overall would the 670 or 770 be able to run all those games at max settings with 4xmsaa (on BF4)

Hard to say, but the 770 would be the most powerful card within that price range when the price drops happen there

4xmsaa is some taxing stuff, the 770 would be the best card, and your best choice in that price range, it should be able to handle it

GTAIV is a pretty bad port, just a heads up. If you have more than 2GB (I think) of VRAM, you will have to jump through some hoops to make the game run properly. I have a 7950 3GB of VRAM and I couldn't even change the graphics settings from 640x480...

you could always get a 7970 ghz......cheaper than a 770 with more or less the same performance.
