Hi, everyone..

I recently buy Battlefield 3 game, but I don't have a graphic card, so I need your help, which card is best with minimum price.

I have a motherboard Asus P8H67-V with ATI CrossfireX, Intel Core i3-2100, 8GB DDR3 RAM (1333MHz).

So, I have two options

OPTION-1
Should I buy a single High-Profile graphic card?

OPTION-2
Should I buy Two Low-Profile with CrossfireX supported graphic cards?

Please help me.... Thanks

I think we need a bit more information:

1) How much is your budget?
2) What is the current maximum resolution of your monitor?
3) What is the wattage of your power supply?

I use an ATI 6870 for BF3 on a system that isn't as good as your and I've been pretty pleased with it. I run most everything on High with 8x AA, etc. My bottleneck is with my Intel Q6600 CPU, but overall for around $140-160 USD, I feel like I get great performance for my buck. The Nvidia 560ti is also a popular choice for the price/performance comparison if you don't like ATI cards.

You can find used6950 for around $160. Nothing can beat it at that price

I have single display 19inch, so I use 1024x768p.

1) Approximate $100 ±
2) 1280x1024p is maximum resolution.
3) I have 420W power supply.
I used to play MW2 on Intel HD 2000, without any problem, but BF3 requires faster GPU. Direct Compute isn't sufficient for BF3.

You need to update the psu, well you should. The 6870 should be alright at that resolution.

Your processor is ok, but it will do.

I used to play MW2 on Intel HD 2000, few time when enemy near and attacks, the real time rendering fails and delay occurs.
In BF3, Intel HD 2000 is totally fail to response in realtime, So I must have to buy a faster GPU.
I want real time response in gaming. Medium/low graphics settings are acceptable.

1) I would recommend the 7720 or the 6850 for you they are in the 110 to 130 price range. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
2) That will make it easier for you to use a video card that doesn't have to be so beefy
3) I think the power supply will be cutting it close, but you can likely push one of these cards. Your PSU will need to have a 6-pin power connector for the video card
