Well when BF3 hits later on, I want to be able to enjoy SP nearly maxed out with constant high FPS. (Excluding AA. I'll probably play MP with everything on low due to graphic advantages).
I'm assuming there will be a newer series, or more efficient, out by then. So I'm kinda thinking about upgrading some hardware.
8800 ultra - evga
4 Gb 600mhz - ocz
ol' x-fi fatality for a bit of cpu ease
all chillin' on a 750i - evga
It's a tad old but still runs strong. I play BC2 MP with everything low just so I get the best framerate (and theres a LoD bug, kinda). I'm willing to up for BF3, but don't want to drop 1.3k or so. Do you think if I just got a nice gpu (maybe a new series by then) I should be good on FPS with max quality DX11? I know my CPU will be handling some, but the majority of the work should be done by my GPU yeah?
First, running PCIx 2.0, I read a while back its nearly 32x? Sounds a lot, is that accurate or less.
Second. OC CPU... Like I said, not very knowledgeable. I'm mostly skeptic and feel like I won't see much of an increase. That aside, do you suggest only upping the core speed, or does voltage need to follow for stability (like I said, I don't know much about OC) . Also, whats a good way to test my stability, any programs or just trial and error.
