just wanting to be able to run battlefield 3 on ultra at the moment i have to run it on medium otherwise after playing for an hour or so on ultra i start to get spikes through the middle of the screen and starting lagging.
The game would keep throttling back the VRAM usage and it incurred stuttering and severe FPS drops. So the experience was around 55-60 FPS with severe interruptions of 20-35 FPS. Cranking it down to the next lowest setting worked great and even with some of the graphics settings on Ultra, excluding the texture setting. So it is possible but it just sucks because of the lack of VRAM
i want to upgrade anyway to be clear of all this and not need to worry about having to lower settings to make the game run at its best. How much of a Jump is the GTX670? is it worth paying the extra $100 in the long run and just getting the GTX680?
