Hello, I am buying a new GPU next week and I need to know which is best. I am playing only playing in 1080p (1920x1080) one monitor. Due to that factor I am almost wanting to rule out the 7970 because it's more of a eyefinity set up. On the other hand, I am not concerned about 3D technology. I would like 55+ FPS average on BF3 ultra settings. I know both cards are capable of doing it, but what do but what do you think is best?
GTX 580: $499.99
GTX 570's SLI: $699.99
HD 7970: $569.99
I have yet to find a review for the 570 SLI, but the 7970 will not "crush" the 580 like one guy likes to reference for BF3. Here are the charts. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/517?vs=508
Battlefield 3 1920x1200 - Ultra Quality + 4xMSAA
46.3 Average FPS Nvidia 580
48.8 Average FPS ATI 7970
I'll keep looking to see if they have a 570 SLI benchmark. My guess will be that the 570 SLI will have the highest frame rates, and possibly the only option to get to the 55+ FPS rate that you are looking for.
