Nope. That'll take two 570s. The other hardware's good enough, though.

And the 570's should have 1.5 or 2.0 GB of Vram. BF3 is a very demanding game.

I think their stock 1.3gb is fine on 1920x1080.

Are you sure? Because I've heard reports of people maxing it out with a 6870. I thought DICE seriously underestimated GPU's, when they said 2 580's.

A 6870? I highly doubt that. Maxing it at what resolution?

Yes it will run BF3 @ ultra @1080P without any problem, it will generate around 47 FPS which will make the game very smooth and very playable, seeing that GTX 560ti is around $200 you can get HD 7850 for $250 for the optimal performance.

You don't need to SLI at all.

Really? I had it in my head that you would be looking at around 40FPS with a 560 ti. Guess I was wrong. Are you saying this out of past experience or was it something you read? I Don't consider a game maxed unless you can hit the refresh rate of the monitor but that is just my opinion.

40-45 FPS in a gameplay makes the game very smooth , fast and flawless. Hitting a constant 60 FPS in game just gives you a "feel" that you have a beast GPU and the game is completely smooth. Anything beyond 60 FPS (most 1080P's monitor's refresh rate) will not give you any additional benefit unless you do the jump to a 120hz monitor.

I played the BF3 @ ultra 1080P with my HD 6950 ranging from 41 FPS to 58 FPS depending on the locations, when OCed to 950 MHz I never dropped to 40s.
last bench i saw for the GTX 560ti was hitting 47 FPS with the new drivers, with a little overclock i guess it will go beyond this.

Some people care much more about FPS than others. ilysaml isn't too picky. Personally, I think the difference between 45 and 60fps is night and day, and I'll lower whatever settings I have to to get up there.

Here are some hard numbers for BF3 on ultra settings with today's (actually today's: the 690's in there) fastest cards: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-690-ben...

ily, do you have AA on? The Tom's 580 only gets 55fps on average with 4x enabled.

Everything was on ultra, and I ranged between 41-58 depends on the location and game effects (smokes, shadows,...etc) it wasn't constant.

That is more like the numbers I was expecting to see. I had sli gtx 460's 1GB and overclocked to 850MHz I had to play with No AA in order to maintain 60 FPS. I am pretty sure that a single gtx 560 ti will not out bench sli 460 1GB. The last review that i read put sli gtx 460 1GB between a 570 and a 580.

Interesting article. So based on what they are saying, any AMD gpu with a core clock less than 800MHz suffers from micro stuttering when in crossfire due to the core being too slow to keep up but with 3 cards the problem goes away. I can honestly say that have never heard that before.

It's subjective. I've never experienced micro-stuttering myself, and I'm not willing to buy another 460 to test it out, but it apparently bothers some people quite a lot and others not at all.
