Quick question: Is it possible to run BF3 totally maxed out with Intel i5-3570k, 8GB RAM and GTX 660ti?
Also which GTX 660ti is the best for around 300-350€?

More about : bf3 maxed

From the reviews on Tom's and other sites i think its best to skip the 660Ti since its plagued with performance issues, shell out a bit more cash get yourself a 670 or get a 7950.

if by max you mean 4x msaa(or lower) or a different form of anti aliasing, yes

Yeah, I am almost set on the GTX 670, but don't know which one to get.

Yes.

If it runs on my 560ti 448 Cores which is slightly faster than stock 580 in BF3 at ultra. Then it will run on yours perfectly fine.

Depending on the resolutions, it will play at modest FPS. But multiplayer tears up even the most powerful CPU/GPU configurations.

Taking notes from what others suggest on here, i would go with anything that doesn't have a reference design.

I've heard there has been some problems with the Asus version. Also is the EVGA GTX 670 FTW better than MSI GTX 670 PE?
I don't have the money to buy a EVGA GTX 670 Superclocked :D

I have a 660Ti.

I have yet to find these "performance issues"....

BF3 run's almost the same on just about any CPU. It's a VERY GPU heavy game.

It run's well on almost all highest settings on my 570, 27" @ 1920x1080.

I just had it auto select settings...

You won't find them, because they do not exist. The only problem is that it does not perform as well as it should IN SOME GAMES whan AA is set high. But this is not the case for BF3

Well in these benchmarks the 660ti is almost equal to the 670, or would for say a EVGA 670 FTW totally smoke all the 660ti cards?

670 is roughly 25% faster than a 660 ti Quote: "As it stands, AMD’s position correctly reflects their performance; the GTX 660 Ti is a solid and relatively consistent 10-15% faster than the 7870, while the 7950 is anywhere between a bit faster to a bit slower depending on what benchmarks you favor. Of course when talking about the 7950 the “anything but equal” maxim still applies here, if not more so than with the GTX 670. The GTX 660 Ti is anywhere 50% ahead of the 7950 and 25% behind it, and everywhere in between."

They are all good my opinion is MSI GTX 670 Power Edition Twin Frozr IV and ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP are the best the others are decent like GIGABYTE's GTX 670 Windforce OC and EVGA GTX 670 FTW.

Well, the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP is atleast here in Finland about 40-50€ more expensive than the MSI GTX 670 Power Edition Twin Frozr IV so should I just go for the MSI GTX 670 Power Edition Twin Frozr IV?

No problem your very welcome! :)  http://www.overclock.net/t/1265110/the-gtx-670-overcloc... when you get your card if you want to overclock but don't know how try this tutorial, it goes over everything needed for GTX 670 overclocking, and takes into account that each chip is different.

Okay, thanks :)  One more thing when I look around the forum I always find some problems to a card im thinking about getting, that makes me think if I should get it. Probably still going with the MSI GTX 670 PE though :)

Nothing is wrong with the card i have two and the stuff your reading about is about the MSI PE 660 TI and it was only done in a certain batch as far as i know but it's hog wash anyways just screwed people out of getting more for their money imo and NV made MSI fix it so no worries the card comes with a two year warranty MSI has to back it up! ;)

Ok, got my build pretty much clear now, though going to have to wait some time before getting it. Can't really afford it at the time :/

MSI OC edition.

I can use x8, x16 AA on certain games and still get great fps but for bf3 I have to use x4.
I have overclocked it and performance is drastically better than stock clocks in most cases.
I play on 1980 x 1080.

Just remember to look into things before judging or being swayed by bs if the MSI 670 PE was so bad how come only TH complained about it how come it has four out of five star rating on every site it's sold how come every professional review aside from TH recommend it and award it examples read the reviews from real professionals http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_670_Power_Ed...
