Okay I wasn't sure where to ask this but I'm upgrading my gpu from a 560 ti to a 680 and I can't find a definite answer. So what I want to know is what fps will I get on BF3 64 player with an i5-2500k and a gtx 680 at 1920x1080?

That's the 680 but in single player mode I think. Pretty good I'd say. If your performance is lower, than it would be the processor, but you cannot get too much better than the 2500K without a mega investment in something like a 3960K with a new motherboard.

Very good. Likely somewhere between 50 and 60.

That being said, get a 670 instead. You save $100, and the 680 is only 5% more powerful. The 670 will still max out most games, and won't affect the scenario you laid out at all - the lag in 64 player is from CPU bottlenecks.

it will be your cpu that will keep your fps down in 64 man maps although you have one of the best gaming cpus... Only thing you can do to keep your frames higher is OC the CPU.

And about the 670 vs 680 I always see posts where people say the 670 is only 5% slower than the 680... but in my exp. i am seeing closer to 10-15% better performance out of my OC'd 680 vs my friends OC'd 670.

Try this with your 660 ti first i believe the problem is the mesh.....You can turn down the mesh to medium and restart...let me know if it's better for you.

i know is hard to swallow, but is the only solution without spending hundreds of dollars .......

Not enough to justify upgraded from a 660 ti

The 680 that I was looking at was this one: http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GeForce-PCI-Express-Grap...

So that 680 vs the windforce 670, which one for bf3? How much more fps will I get with the 680 vs the 670?

The 680 won't help much in 64 player maps unless you have all of the graphics maxed and a high resolution (>=1080p). However on maps with less players the 680 will show a definite performance boost over the 670, not to mention other games that are usually GPU bound. I have a i5-2500k and get around 60 fps at stock in 64 player maps.

Well of course you will get more with it off but if you thinking 100+ fps forget about it not without turning settings down

I'm going to play it on ultra and at 1080p so your saying they're will be a significant difference in 64 player maps with the 680?

Will I get upwards of 100 with aa on x2 or even aa off?

I know what your hoping for and the answer is no if you are not willing to except 60-65 fps do not buy either card.
