Hi im buying a new pc and im hoping to stream battlefield 3 can anyone tell me what fps i will get playing bf3 on a i5 OC to 3.7 (Its a sandy Bridge) and a gtx 550 ti 1 gb on low settings without streaming/recording
550ti low and no AA will be in the 50-60 range most the time (@ 1920X1080) it will dip a little more in some situations..... streaming forget it, it'll be stuttery as hell nobody will want to watch a lag noob getting owned due to his shite FPS.
Take Jay-z's advice and try to get a 560ti it is alot better though really if your serious about recording/streaming I wouldnt take lower than a 660ti
Yeah, the 660ti is excellent but is about twice the price (and performance) of the 550 ti. The decision for OP is how much money do you want to spend. Also, consider that if you get the 550 ti you will probably upgrade sooner. If you get the 660ti you will be fine for a while with the option of SLI down the track and have great performance all the way. The 2GB VRAM should also help.
is the card i recommend for streaming and Hi Res game play at the same time. Also you might look into SLI for more power if needed for more monitors. My 560 OC will only let me play at (1920x1080) at medium settings without no stream for answering your question, but I would get the card I recommend so you can do more things if you want to. Playing BF at low settings is no fun compared to the Higher settings with AA
