Hey guys,

So, my previous NViDiA 9500GT 1GB made its way to heaven. And now, I'm looking for a new one to buy.

My Motherboard:

Intel Classic Series
DG43NB
*For the Intel Core 2 Quad and Intel Core 2 Duo Processors

My Specs:



What's the best one out there for me?

Also, on my specs, will 6770 & GTX 460 have a difference? The price is a lot different. I just wanted to know if the performance will be. My screen is 21" CRT.

If you are wondering what types of games I play....Batman Arkham City, COD:MW3, NFS: The Run etc "high-demanding" ones.

Thanks in advance for your helpful replies :)

what resolution is your monitor? most crts wont play at a resolution that is worth getting either of those cards that i know of. if you upgraded monitors both of those cards will probably allow to play those games as high as you would like, with some minor altering of settings.

1280x1024

Are you sure? 'cause I played Batman Arkham Asylum greatly with my NViDiA 9500GT 16b AGP.

I believe what jmacphee9 is saying is that both cards support resolutions higher than your 1280x1024.

I've got a Q6600 running at a stock 2.4 GHz, and I've paired it off with an AMD 6850, my research indicated that anything higher than this GPU would not help as I'd be CPU bound at my resolution (1920x1200).

In your case, the GTX 460 is better than the AMD 6770 (see http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/296?vs=313). The GTX 460 delivers equivalent performance to the AMD 6850 (http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/291?vs=313).

Go in for the AMD 6770 if you're not planning on switching to higher resolutions. Go in for either the GTX 460 or the AMD 6850 if you will be upgrading your monitor in the near future - both these cards will be able to comfortably drive higher resolutions.

I would recommend Nvidia... I have had headaches from ATi in the past, and having headaches from my 5870HD card now. ATi is touchy and buggy in alot of games. I would recommend the GTX.

Nvidia doesn't have driver problems, that's why sites including this one only recommend Nvidia cards. Oh wait.

Puhleeeese. Let's not start this pointless debate.

Nvidia and AMD both make competitive GPUs, with their own weaknesses and strengths.
Nvidia and AMD both have had (and continue to have) driver issues at various points in time.

Let the OP decide which card to go in for, without biasing him with comments like this.

If we are tossing in personal opinions, then here's mine: I've used both Nvidia and AMD GPUs, and both have served me very well without any issues.

But so what is the best card for high grapfic performance like bf3? have 1 560
SLI 570 SLI 580 1 590
1.1monitor
2.not throwing money on 3D glasses and prob wont clock the cards cus I am really damn inexperienced with that sort of things.
3.700w power supply
4. no extra fans but will prob by some new ones if required
5. 3.3ghz preocessor

recommended specs for BF3 are 560 or 6950 or anything with SLI or Crossfire.....if you have a 560, stay with it, all that is needed

.......With a 700W PSU I couldnt recommend running SLI 570's or 580's. As with either you want 800W-950W , Your pushing it even with a 590. Also what resolution is the monitor? and with SLIing 570s 580s or the 590 your 3.3 is going to bottleneck you.

I can clock it to 4.9, but your saying that 700w is too low to sli 560, 570 and 580?
