HD 5970...Battlefield 3 Ultra @ 60fps?

Is it possible with a slightly overclocked 2500k? I really want to run this game on ultra at a consistent 50fps during hectic 64 player matches. I haven't been able to find any benchmarks running this game on Ultra with the 5970s...P.S.

I'm worried about the game's issues with dual GPUs and drivers. I've heard of some people running at Ultra with a consistent 50-70fps, then then I've heard of some running Ultra at 30-40fps...then there are all the people complaining that they can't even run the game or only half of the GPU is being utilized so they have to play at Medium or even Low just to get a playable frame-rate.

I'm getting the 2gb Diamond 5970 from Newegg for $299 (I've never heard of them- is this a reliable brand?). I'm building a new rig completely from scratch, so this will be the first GPU (i.e., this isn't an upgrade). I don't want to spend more than $300 because I'm waiting for the Radeon 7000 series (originally wanted unlocked and crossfire'd 6950's, roughly $550).

    Without MSAA enabled it will do great. With MSAA enabled I do believe there is some occasional stuttering/jitter, but I'm not sure if it's driver issues or VRAM issues as the 5970 has 1GB of useable VRAM and MSAA requires an enormous amount of it.

    It is actually 1GB per GPU for a total of 2GB I believe. Will I be able to disable MSAA and possibly use MLAA instead?
  6. Yeah it's 2gb total but only 1gb usable since it's shared. I would use the built-in FXAA for BF3.

  8. To be more accurate, all 2gb are used, but since both cards will have to load all the same info to render its own frames, it performs no better than a single GPU with 1GB.
