  1. 550 USD? For that price you might as well just get an overclocked 7970
  2. GTX 680.
  3. well i was wondering which of the two i know to 7970 is cheaper but bf3 performs better under nvidia
  4. Buy a 7970 OC edition if you dont worry about physx & active shutter 3d which Nvidia offers

    The only reason it 'performs better' under NVidia is because reviewers test it with FXAA rather than MSAA. I was playing BF3 at 2560x1600 for hours yesterday maxed out on a 7970

    Very true... hardly seen any benchmarks of bf3 with MSAA.....
    +1 for hd 7970...... it'll come in handy at higher resolutions and at higher AA
  7. Yep, you turn up MSAA, and suddenly you have a 7950 pulling ahead from a 670. Not sure what Nvidia do, but I honestly cannot play without some sort of AA on, whether it be 2, 4 or 8.

    Very true :D
  9. Some circumstances it even pulls ahead from a GTX 680, such as in a Nvidia "preferred game", which was some new batman game, I can't remember its name, but the 7950 was gaining a sizeable lead against the 680, the 7870 against the 670, and the 660ti was doing worse than Xfired 7770's.
  10. Yeah, theres no possible way that last one is correct. 660 ti 2560x1600 4xMSAA at 33 fps beating a 7950? That 192 bit bus does *** all in every other benchmark I've seen.

    How about you post them instead of posting crap.BF3 runs better on nvidia card no matter how much AA or res you apply.Its limited by AMD driver.Same will happen with medal of honor warfighter.Frostbite2 loves nvidia.

    Lol all i see in those benchmarks is gtx 680 spanking 7970 at all res and setting. :lol:
    Gotto love the stupidness here.ahha


    Now im not talking about 7970 here :non:
    hd 6990 surpasses 680 and in other benchmarks 7970 is ahead of gtx 680

    BF3 can run better on amd cards as well if we don't talk about 590 and 690 here..........
  14. @OP
    IF u want to buy card ONLY to play BF3 and if u like nvidia.... then buy gtx 680 if u can afford it... if u can afford 7970 ghz then i'll prefer it over 670.... if u can't afford it then buy 670

    EDIT:-

    Still i'll prefer 7970 ghz because i don't play ONLY bf3 :D

    u comparing dual gpu with a single gpu?Fail logic.Gotto love dumb AMD fanboys.LOL.


    Hmmmmmmm
    Didn't notice that 4gb.... sorry
    BUT still 7970ghz beating gtx680 in bf3 by 5fps :D
    But that's not much a 680 OC should cross that i guess
  16. All those Benchmarks aren't really recent. 12.7 Drivers added like 7 or 8 fps for me in Battlefield 3.

    Dont yall think its a bit to much for just bf3 and guild wars 2?

    I do. My overclocked HD 6670 on a 1080p monitor does the trick for me at high with no FXAA/MSAA on. And it runs beautiful as well. And I'm no AMD fanboy neither. What ever is cheaper at the time and on sale for the best performance, I go for.
  19. he said he wants to play bf3 and gw2 at 1080p. he didnt mention he wants to necessarily play them all maxed out.. even if he does he doesnt need anymore than an hd7950 which according to latest price revisions can be had for $300. so my vote goes for hd7950.
  20. Well that's true i usually prefer 7950 as its cheaper..........
    Guess i was carried away
    Well for only bf3 7870 can do the work too
