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
what do you think the best settings for bf3 1080p to run smooth at 60fps or more but doesnt look low quality
i have an i5 2500k stock with sapphire 7850 oc
