  1. http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/battlefield_4_vga_graphics_performance_benchmark,7.html

    Here you can see the GTX 760 gives you just over 50FPS. Pretty good for Ultra 2XMSAA.


    The only difference between the UD3H and UD4H is the increased number of phases for the regulators to give you a slight advantage in overclocking. It appears the advantage is minimal at best. If you really want to overclock, get the Z87 ASUS Hero.

    * RAM you selected won't work with the CM EVO 212, since the heat spreaders stick up too much.
