Upgrading from a Radeon 5770 to...?
May 28, 2012, 9:32 PM
I am looking to upgrade up from my current Radeon 5770. I wasn't really planning on spending more than $150, preferably less.
I was looking at either a Radeon 6850 or a 560SE. I have been contemplating the standard 560 but not sure if I want to spend the extra cash.
I am currently playing on an pc with an i3 2100. My monitor is currently DVI 1600x1050 but I was hoping to also upgrade soon to a monitor with HDMI.
My current card on high settings on BF3 with no AA gets me in the 40's FPS. I am looking for a card to at least get me in the 60's with some Ultra settings.

If you want AA, neither card is going to do it. You need to spend around $250+ for that. On the other hand, if you want without AA in the 60's. $200 will do.
