I'm looking into upgrading to a video card solution that will support DirectX 11. I currently have 2xGTX 260's is SLI. Other specs include 750w PC Power and Cooling PSU, ASRock X58 mobo, Intel Core i7 930, and 6 GB G.Skill 1600 RAM, in a CoolerMaster 690 case.
I am NOT picky about it being made by Nvidia or ATI. I'm really just trying to get decent framerates at 1920x1080 resolution playing Dragon Age 2. I can do it now, but have to turn off all the eye candy in order to make it not aggravating to play. I have since turned down the resolution one notch so I could keep AA and AF on.
Looking to spend around 300$, single card for, SLI/Crossfire not needed. Right now, I'm almost sold on getting a Radeon 6950 2GB model, but don't know if that will give me any performance increase.
I'm looking to spend in the neighborhood of 300 bucks. The GTX 570 is nice but just a tad too expensive, which is why I was looking into the 6950. I've heard about flashing it to a 6970, but wouldn't know how to go about doing that. Is there a guide or anything?
