is this card future proof to play at 1080p and is is good to play bf3 on high/ultra @ 60 fps i might be able to get a sapphire 7870 oc or a 660 ti but not sure if i will have the $$ if not i might get an msi 7850 oc to upgrade from 5770.

There is no telling if a certain piece of hardware will be 'futureproof', however, the Radeon HD7850 is a very beefy card for it's price and it will certainly be able to play BF3 on Ultra @ 1080p. You may have to lay off some of the Eye-Candy features such as AA, however.

Once overclocked, your HD7850 should perform like a GTX580 :)

You don't have to turn it off, but AA is very taxing on your FPS. Having it turned up all the way may cause some huge dips :) 

However, playing on the Ultra Preset should be no problem, just don't go crazy with the 'custom' settings :lol:

Just turn up all the options except AA which should be off or at 2. Done.

Yes, but the game will looks less crisp and a bit ugly. At 1080p, a 7850 will play BF3 at Ultra at 45FPS, and with some OC, 60FPS.

put the bar for graphics overclocking at max for core and to 1400 for memory and you'd have the best the card can offer.

No, AMD never fixed their drivers after BF3 after it launched like, like 9 months ago. /s


Just joking. They did. And OC like esrever said.

OC with CCC doesn't void warranty.

you should overclock your CPU too.
