Would the GTX 670 be able to take gaming at 1920x1080 with 120hz (120hz monitor) on high/ultra settings on most 2011-2012 game titles such as BF3/Planetside2/Skyrim?

Im planning to use this GPU along with a i5-3570k 3.40 OC'ed to 4.60

im assuming this GPU+CPU combo will max most games out now with 60fps at 1920x1080p on high/ultra but will settings have to be turned down to medium to achieve 120fps via 1920x1080p

That's what I'd guess. It's still worth it to pick up the better monitor, though, and to pick up a second 670 when you can.

Some games you will be able to get 90-120 FPS, but others will require lowered settings to get in that range. Unfortunately, some games, even with 670 SLI, will not be able to hit those FPS due to CPU limitations.

Hi there i have 670 MSI PE though i could not max out Aliens vs. Predator,Crysis,Metro 2033 so i bought a second 670 issue solved i am not sure about the games you're inquiring about though sorry i do not have Planetside2/Skyrim to test out and see what i get but not even my friends Vapor X 7970GHz max out BF3 on my 120hz monitor.

The i5-3570k will be fine if overclocked i have i5-2500K @4.8GHZ 1.35v with x2 670 in sli i murder anything i throw at them. :D

I do believe I've already shown you a bunch of games where SLI does not scale well due to CPU limitations. Some games just require a lot more CPU than GPU power. WoW, Rift and GW2 are prime examples. 64 player BF3 maps often run into this too. Many games are not designed to allow for 120 FPS all the time or even some of the time. Risen 2 is another example that comes to mind. I couldn't get above 40 FPS without a 4ghz OC, which got me to 60-75.

Yeah you did bud.I don't know if those tests are correct though they might be i tend to find TH full of it sometimes but the seven games i have i can max out is what i should of said. :)

120 FPS all the time is not going to happen unfortunately that's for sure.I would say your expecting to much.

thanks for every1 commenting...i came from a gaming laptop where i would tweak everything and reduce most game settings to low. the only gaming luxery i had was keeping the resolution at 1080p just to keep games looking reasonable yet still hitting high fps such as 60+ and even 120fps on some games with super downgraded graphics tweaks.

I decided to go for a PC gaming setup and spoil myself as money is available.
I will receive a gaming computer in the next few days which i ordered:

i guess ill do some testing when it arives and if not satisfied ill go for the
SLI 2x GTX 670.

What monitor are you getting? If you are getting something 120hz, I might suggest getting one that is 3D Vision 2 capable.

No. My 680 doesn't hit 60FPS constantly in BF3, matched with a 3470. Averages around 65-70, spikes down to 50+ when things go boom, and spikes to 40+ when lots of things go boom. This is in single player on a 60Hz monitor at 1080p. These spikes are only a few seconds long and are essentially unnoticeable.

PC gaming is fluid, and FPS will always vary. The only goal you should care about is average well over 50 FPS in any game at 1080p with settings maxed (including AA and AF ideally). For me, that is a well built gaming PC.

Keep in mind, he is getting a 120hz monitor, so he's going to want 80+ FPS to gain added fluidity and responsiveness from the monitor.
