    heres my take. if you want a 670 in your build, you will have to throw 200 more dollars which i dont think its worth that much given you can get yourself another 7850 in crossfire. enjoy!
  2. I'm sorry but i don't understand what you mean by a 670.
  3. GTX 670 from nvidia
  4. plays anything maxed out at 1080p
  5. ah ok thanks, so your saying that if i double up my gpu's its just as good as a top card? so this looks all good/compatible?
  6. you dont need to add another card in just yet. one 7850 already gets you 50 fps in bf3 at ultra
  7. sounds good! thank you for your input :)
  8. no problem
