BF3 120fps graphics card?

Hello,

I have a 120 Hz monitor and I want to buy a better graphics card to support my monitor. The purpose is to play BF3. My only requirements are to run at a 1080p resolution at 120fps. I don't care if I run at the lowest settings otherwise. What graphics card would best suit my needs? my motherboard only has a PCI express 2.0 so it can't cant be anything from the GTX 600 series. would a 570 or 580 be sufficient? What is the minimum card I would need?

Thanks

More about 120fps graphics card
  1. PCI 3.0 cards are backwards compatible. I run a 660 on my PCI 2.0 mobo
  2. If you want 120 fps, get the amd 7990 from newegg. If you want that performance on that crazy demanding game, it also depends on what settings you will play on (low or ultra)
  3. My GTX 660 just got between 70 and 85 fps in a 64 player server on operation firestorm. I also played on a server with ~10 players on caspian border and the fps was between 80 and 115 normally staying in the 90's. Both games were on low and no Vsinc. I guess the results were so different because I need a better CPU. But knowing that I assume a a 680 or a 7970 can get the job done, maybe even on medium.
  4. Something like a 670 or if you want something a bit better the 7970 would be great for what you want it to do. What PSU do you have? I wouldn't waste your money on a 7990 either.

    I have a 850W PSU, so power isn't a problem
  6. What's your budget?
  7. NO, get this amazing thing

    good cooling and everything, trust me its AMAZING
  8. Just ignore the person above.

    Yes we need to know your budget and exactly what PSU you have. Reason being some no names say 850 and can actually only support half that.
  9. hey thats the best gpu for him

    my budget is around 400. but would be happy to spend less. All i care for is 120fps at 1080p at lowest settings.

    looks like the 670 is a pretty good choice. thanks
  11. get a coolmaster silent pro rs850
  12. Are you going to overclock your gpu?

  14. stay with that psu its a great one that i have (same series as me)
  15. It must be a pain though since it is not modular

    Okay then you have a good PSU.

    As for the GPU I recommend this.

    It's the best you can get in the price range. Better than the 670 and if you overclock it you can get it to the 7970 GHz levels and above which can outperform a 680.

    For a hint for the new person. You can edit your messages instead of seeming as if you are hyper.
  17. You do realize that the 120hz of your monitor is referring to its refresh rate and not the FPS you want to maintain in your game... RIGHT?
  18. If you have 470 dollars get this nvidia gtx 680

    initially i wouldn't overclock. Would need to research it much more.

    and with regards to the PSU being modular, it was a pain initially, but I'm proud of my wiring.
  21. He doesn't have $470 for one and the 7970 overclocked performs better. Secondly if the refresh rate is 120 Hz that means it can display up to 120FPS so having a card capable of that is in theory better. Now it's debatable if the human eye can perceive that many but that's a different argument.

    yes, my monitor can do 120HZ, but my current graphics card isn't good enough to get to 120fps(only gets about 60ish). that's why i'm looking for a replacement
