Now I have searched everywhere for a gaming Graphics card that I can use to play on either high or max settings on a resolution of 1650x1050. The games I want to play are: BF3, CS: Global Offensive, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and the new Medal of honor:Warfighter coming out this year.
Now I am on a budget of around £150 I have looked at a few cards but the Radeon 6870 seems to stand out, would like to hear your suggestions & opinions on what to buy? All help is well appreciated.
A radeon 6870 is par with a gtx 560 (non ti). The gtx 560 should perform a tad better (2-5 fps better). You wont be running on BF3 on max settings but you should be able to play them on high. I have a 560 Ti on high settings with some things on Ultra and Vsync on and i play from 40-60fps, it never goes below 30 at 1920x1080. At your resolution you should be able to play BF3 on high.
You could also spend 20 pounds more and get a 560 Ti which will perform better.
