hello all im new here

i tried to research everything but i still couldn't decide to choose graphic card

here is my spec

i7-950 3.2ghz
ASUS RAMPAGE III FORMULA
Sapphire vapor x HD 5870 1GB Crossfire
SSD
3x4gb 12GB RAM

bf3 graphic i chose auto setting and it showed me graphic - ultra, everything else was on High mode and anti alysing was off

when i play game frame rate was around 30~40 ( i didnt pay attention on framerate)

but while i am walking or doing nothing sometime frame rate going bad like 20.. or low RANDOMLY

so i was planning to change to new graphic card. to get ULTRA option with better frame rate

question is around $700

6970 CF vs gtx580 (i cant go for SLI now but maybe later?) or maybe gtx590 for future references

will it be improve of performance ..?whether i choose one of them. or not noticeable?

im really confusing .. HELP

The ATI 6990 should do it. Easy 100 FPS or so.

BEWARE!!! RANT COMING...

I can't believe how many times I've seen this BF3 question about Ultra settings, FPS, video cards, etc.
I understand that new people come in here all of the time, but do they ever look at the website to see all the cool things available. Articles, Reviews, News.
That link I put up addresses practically every Q being asked about BF3.
Sure, there will still be Q's but does anybody research any more or do they just want an instant answer?
END RANT*

BTW, even a caveman can see that FPS in Tom's review shows that between GPU's offering up similar FPS between Nvidia and AMD, AMD cards are much less expensive if that's the way you want to go.

Awesome card! Make sure you email EVGA a copy of ur receipt before 30 days so you get the lifetime warranty on the card, it covers even damages due to overclocking! EVGA is the best! Latest BF3 patched fixed stuttering problems people were having with online gameplay, campaign still has some issues. Did you get Batman City free w the card? The DX11 patch on Batman is still broken right now giving horrible framerates even on the 590. Hopefully they will fix it soon.
