  1. The GTX 670 will average it out at about 65FPS. This doesn't include events that could bring the frame rate down (big close-by explosions, lots of stuff happening.
    The Radeon HD7970 is a tiny bit faster than this card.

    But your real problem here is the CPU. BF3 is a multithreaded game and so the i3 does not perform well with it.

    You know what, you're right. I don't know which generation doesn't have hyperthreading but they made them have it while I wasn't looking :O
    Anyway, yeah. the GTX 670 is about $400 and the 7970 is like $450. They're close in performance. I'm honestly surprised the 7970 isn't cheaper by now.. it might go down in price.
