  1. Battlefield 3 Performance: 30+ Graphics Cards, Benchmarked
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graphics-performance,3063.html

    but this is before the last generation of GPUs

    let the AMD/Nvidia flame war begin :)

    pssst it's either the GTX690 or 7970 . . depending on if you like green or red.
  2. What resolution are you playing on? If 1080p you probably dont need the best gpu on the market. I 300 one will do.

    BF3 is really good looking game so yeah 1080p
    any specific gfx cards?
  4. You can get a GTX 580 for $350 now on newegg. That should run it around 60 fps on ultra with AA turned on. A 7870 will also give you good performance.
  5. I would say that needing 80 fps in ultra is excessive, tour eyes cant notice 60+ fps, but i would recommend the GTX 580 because it can run it like you want and its a really nice gpu, i prefer nvidia because they have better support and drivers that they constantly update for new games and other things, also the 580's price should drop even more as more of kepler is released
  6. well the OP stated 80FPS and i think that only leaves the two big boys from both the red and green camp. (excluding a multi gfx card set up)

    but is 60 good enough?
  7. and it probably wont get you that 80 fps but you honestly wont notice it your eyes cant tell the difference

    you know i understand that point. however my monitor can refresh @ 75Hz, so wouldn't it make a difference then?

    This should answer your question quite definitively:

    With a single card ? .... Not on this planet ... 57 fps is best w/ a single 680 ....about 20% down we have the 7970 w/ 46 fps.

    101 fps can be done w/ 2 cards

  10. Hmm, i have decided to increase my budget to 2 cards
    because i also do FRAPS gameplays and such, which will reduce my FPS

    Best Dual Cards
  11. Best dual cards? If money isnt an issue grab 2 GTX 680s but have fun trying to get your hands on them right now.
  12. I would say 2x GTX 560 ti's(448 core or normal, your choice) or 2x GTX 570's, if your going for dual cards

    yes it probably would then, but still not majorly, what is your mointor resolution by the way?, i am wondering because i have never seen a 75hz refresh rate widescreen monitor although i havent looked for any as that is an odd refresh rate
