  1. Well your not gona do Ultra on a 7850.. You need to step up to atleast a 7950 or a GTX 670 (maybe a GTX 660 TI) for 1080P to completely max out BF3 and get good frames
  2. Nah not really. If you want to play bf3 on ultra, you need to get at least a radeon 7870. But this is just borderline, the game might get choppy during explosions. I recommend a radeon 7950 for ultra on bf3

    As you can see, the 7850 will give you about 32FPS in ultra mode with 4XAA. The thought is, 30 FPS is the minimum, 40 is okay, 60 is considered great and "maxed out"

    So to really max out this game, you would need a 680.
  4. or get a hd7970 for a lot cheaper and overclock the crap out of it. totally doable.

    so what 7850 is capable of can i go for gtx660 instead?
  6. yes but if money is tight.. I'd recommend you save another 100 or 200$ because for 1080p your idea of low budget graphics card is ballet frame rate and max settings is different from the reality. Your gonna need at least a 7950 to do 1080p. Or if you can find one still there is 670s at newegg for the price of a gtx 660 ti so that's also something to consider.

    Now if you were asking what 7950 or 670 brand would be a good choice, then now your thinking correct. For and radeon I always tell people to go for xfx or gigabyte. But and cards are designed decently well this time so msi and saphire are ok choice. Try and pick up a GHz edition 7950 from xfx if u can.

    As for a 670, I use EVGA since their warranty is so good. But msi power edition 670s are good if u can afford one.. If not then get a gtx 670 ftw because their performance is about the same as a 680 now.
  7. 7950s are cheaper than gtx670s, perform the same and overclock better. They don't come in ghz ed. though(you are thinking of 7970).

    7850s are cheaper than gtx660s(non ti), perform the same, and overclock way better. overclocking sucks on most gtx660 cards(non ti).

    7970(not ghz ed.) performs about as well at gtx680 and overclocks better. a heck of a lot cheaper too.

    Independent reviews of nvidia's latest driver may prove these statements wrong. based on other recent drivers though I doubt it.

    hmm okay fanboy.. Run your mouth all you want. I know what I'm talking about. A 670 outperforms a 7950 and depending on the card you can achieve 1200 MHz...a 7850 won't do 1080p so your point for that is irrelevant

    actually currently i'm using a 1600x900 monitor i would upgrade to a 1080p on coming june or july also my current card is asus dc gtx 550ti i thought this card would not be enough to play bf3 on high settings so i decided to buy gtx 660 should i upgrade my card or stay with gtx 550ti and save some money to buy a gtx 660ti or 670 at future
  10. These guys seem as if they have too much Money in their pockets...

    I own a GTX 660 and I play at 1920x1080, I do also own the i5-3570 (non-k). I get on average about 50-55 fps on ultra settings lowest I've ever got is 45 fps, so it's more than playable. And you know what? It's like the half Price of GTX 670.

    You would be covered with the GTX 660. :)

  13. gtx 660 non ti would be plenty for 1080p max.settings!! however if you can find the 7870 for similar price then that would be better
