Both those cards are phased out. Look for a 7850, or a gtx 650 Ti. What do you have for a CPU? And your PSU?

BF3 favors nVidia cards in general :)

That's not so true any more if your running the 12.11 beta drivers though.

GTX 560 Ti is significantly faster than HD 6870. Or GTX 650 Ti in that matter, too.

Catalyst 12.11 still couldn't defeat 310.70 driver in Battlefield 3

The 560 Ti, is much more expensive, uses more power, and is outdated. Your CPU is going to bottle neck it any way. Yes it will perform better but not enough to justify the extra cost.

No perhaps not, but like I said with your CPU isn't great (it's about the same as mine) anything above a 650 Ti, will be bottle necked.
If you want to upgrade your CPU I'd recommend an I5 3570, or a cheaper I3 if you can't afford it. But then you'll need a new board, and probably a new windows license to go with it.

Not as much as you might think though.

Perhaps 6870 ? Thanks for all the answers so far. I cant afford any new mobo's and cpu's right now.

6870 is the same deal as the 560 Ti. It was a great card but the 7850 is the same price now and it performs better with lower power consumption.

You'll be fine with a single GTX560Ti and your current CPU and that's a fact.

Ok thanks :)  Do you think ill be able to play BF3 on ultra settings or atelast high, with min 30 fps, with my pc + 560 ti or 6870 ? Talking about multiplayer

Wow thats interesting mace, i have just one more question, is 650 ti better then 550 ti ?
December 22, 2012 4:03:29 PM

Much difference on benchmark (bf3) against 650 ti. Ill take the 650 ti in my consideration aswell. Thanks
