At 1680x1028 res, the card can run max settings on most games. You'll get modified ultra settings for BF3 if you turn off ambient occlusion and lower the anti-aliasing options. Other than that it's a good card though. For upcoming games and the current generation of games 2GB of VRAM is becoming necessary, especially with graphic-intensive games or higher resolution gaming.
I like the CPU as well as everything else about the gaming rig.
Well, i like everything else as well. The only thing I will most likely change soon is the GFX card and get a 7870. I may even wait a bit longer for the nvidia GTX 6XX ti models to come out and make prices drop even more. The 670 is an awesome card but out of my price range so ill wait some more for prices to drop. By christmas time prices should be pretty sexy
