Yes you definitely can, but drop X6 1090t in there for good measure

For gaming, X4 is usually better value than X6. No games are threaded enough to use more than 4 cores. BF3 might be heavily threaded enough to benefit from the X6, but it's hard to say for sure unless someone can dig up a benchmark on that. The 570 will do quite well with most games, only the most demanding titles would cause it to struggle. It might not be able to max out BF3, but we won't know that for sure until the game actually comes out. The 570 does perform well in the Beta, it would depend on how much eyecandy is added to the final game.

The 570 would perform quite similar to the Radeon HD 6970 seen on that benchmark. I think the 570 would be slightly faster than the 6970 in BF3, not by a huge amount, probably by only a few FPS.

Btw, What motherboard should i get in like a year (so that the prices are lowered) that will have the best (almost x2) scaling performance with 2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... in Xfire? Also, should i get one that supports the new FX processors and if so, should i get a six or 4 core proc? Thanks!

for 325 you can get the 2500k and the BIOSTAR TZ68A+ LGA1155 Z68. But no CFX with that mobo sadly.

you didn't mention your mobo.....if you have a newer 990fx chipset or an sli board with a nvidia chipset why dont you drop an extra 30$ bucks on

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 28Fermi%29

you'd have a much better chance of "maxx'n" with that setup

no sli support

howzabout crossfire

Your first link dosent work!

I have a MSI 870 g45 which i plan replacing later on IF i decide wether xfiring is worth it :) 

And xfiring those 2 is pretty nice FPS but its harder to sell/future proof value

The GTX 570 can max BF3 with no issues.
I did a thread here on Tom's for the BF3 beta and tested numerous cards with different user configs.


Sweet, then how would you compare it with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-102-...

And in a year and a half getting another one ?

Thanks!

If you can pick up the 2.5GB version of the GTX 570 it will stomp the 6950.

higer mem will do nothing for you unless you plan on higher res. than 1920x1080......

no the 570 will not stomp the 6950 were talking about......

and neweggs link is busted it should work later

a good mobo to buy would be a 990fx.....asus sabertooth oc...really well

He wanted a future proof card.
So yes 2.5gb is more....
Also the 6950 does not keep up with a 570.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


It's not a normal 6950 card, its an OC'd 6970 basically at a 150 dollars less in SLI vs the 570 in SLI, also the 6950 scales better in xfire so i think the choice is obvious now. :p

Either way it is cheaper.
However AMD drivers are a nightmare under crossfire comfigurations so that gives me the off.
Nvidia do have simply epic drivers (coming from experience with 6990/6970 and 4870 crossfire solutions)


It is cheaper which is why i am greatley considering it, what should i know before i make the leap? (crossfire driver wise)

Ok guys, thank you, both of you, (to whom do i give best anwser? lol)

So i have ******* FINALLY decided, i will be getting the 6950's toxic's to oc and unlock them, then on my summer job get that samsung 27", hopefully that 200$ mobo will be less, another toxic and do the same thing with it, 4 more gigs of ripjaws ram @ 1600,

and now i need to decide, in a couple of months, quad core o 6 core? Prolly FX series with that motherboard right?
