Ok now Im sure this question is going to make some people made because some are going to say it is a stupid question, but here goes. I have a EVGA GTX 560 ti maximum graphics edition and I am thinking about going through EVGA's step-up program to a GTX 570. Now here is the question, will a GTX 570 max out Battlefield 3????? Yeah I asked it lol, look at my CPU and everything else down below please. I have a nice rig but I am a little disapointed in this video card. I bought it becuase I saw that it was the Crysis 2 maximum graphics edition so I thought WOW if it can max out Crysis 2 this card must OWN. Well didnt know that Crysis 2 was a piece console port. So I am only going to do this if the GTX 570 will max out Battlefield 3 I know this is early and that it will be hard to say but what are your guys thoughts on this.

Thanks guys!

It depends what resolution you play at and how you define "max out." If you define it the way I do(all details and effects at highest levels, 16x AF and at least 4x MSAA, with a minimum of 60 fps) then no, it won't max BF3 at any resolution higher than 12x10. But I'm picky, and it will definitely play BF3 at any single-monitor resolution short of 25x14/16.

I play at 1080p. And maxed out to me is the way you put it. I run BFBC2 maxed out with my GTX 560 ti at around 60 fps that game looks amazing. I have heard that the 3 will not be to much more demanding so thats why I thought maybe a 570 would do it.

You should be fine, and the 570 has 25% more framebuffer, which is nice since 1Gb is getting really small really fast(I run Gtx 460s in SLI)

So would you recommend upgrading or not I am assuming yes but is it worth it from 560 to 570?

An overclocked GTX 560 Ti ~950 mhz should be close to a stock GTX 570, almost. But then you can also overclock a GTX 570 and leave the 560 in the dust. A GTX 570 and an overclocked GTX 560 Ti will pretty much max out BFBC2, and I assume BF3. I'm running around 90-100 fps on BFBC2 maxed out at 1080 resolution on a GTX 580.

Guru3D uses the following games in their test suite, COD-MW, Bad Company 2, Dirt 2, Far Cry 2, Metro 2033, Dawn of Discovery, Crysis Warhead. Total fps (summing fps in each game @ 1920 x 1200) for the various options in parenthesis (single card / SL or CF) are tabulated below along with their cost in dollars per frame single card - CF or SLI:

$210.00 560 Ti (455/792) $0.46 - $0.53
$220.00 560 Ti - 900 Mhz (495/862) $0.44 - $0.51
$335.00 570 (524/873) $0.64 - $0.77

I'd suggest buying a 2nd 560 and putting it in SLI .... that would give you 862 fps (at 900MHz) for about the same as I think the "step up" would cost ya....495 to 524 doesn't sound that exciting.....495 to 862, we talkin something exciting.

Not so fast jt. Your motherboard does not support SLI.

yeah i am aware i was gonna have to change out my mobo. I was so excited when I saw the 12 months no financing that I was like alright the best AMD cpu, awesome case, oooo 1000 watt psu, 8 gig ram, GTX 560 ti not the best but sli it up, yeah the mobo has 2 pci 2.0 slots its sli ready YAY. I was very quick to choosing did a little research, obviously my first build, but not enough at all :fou:  . I have now discovered that geting a little cheaper psu, NOT THE MAJOR OVERKILL 1000w one. I could have just gotten a GTX 580. :(  You live and learn right. But i have been checking the GTX 580's out tonight i think around when Skyrim and Battlefield 3 hit the stores the 580's should be around 300 or so. I am just gonna sell my 560 ti. Then I can upgrade my mobo and sli the 580's later. Thank God for 1000w psu!

Thanks for the reply
