Can i play without fps drop below 60?

Hi all,

Now i'm using HD4850 and play BF3 with medium setting in 1366x768. I got 29-60 fps while play, depend on what location the game is. I want to upgrade my card to 660 ti and hope get constant 60 fps with maybe a little higher setting. Can i play with constant 60 fps with that card use higher setting? Maybe high or ultra..?

CPU : i5-3470
MB : Asrock Z77 Pro3
RAM : DDR3 1600 8GB 9-9-9-24
PSU : Xigmatek Centauro 700w
HDD : 500GB Seagate (is this matter?)

  1. I haven't tested it myself, but yes, it should. A 660 Ti can run Crysis on high settings (Nvidia featured a Crysis 2 build w/ a 660 Ti), so I assume it you should be good. Just wondering, are you playing on 1366x768 to get a better framerate, or is that your monitor resolution?
  2. That is my native resolution :lol:. I use this monitor since i'm in high school. And now i'm in my senior year in college, lol. Of course i will replace it later, that's why i choose to buy 660 TI.

    So, maybe someone that use gtx 660ti can give me hint here? Can i play with constant 60 fps?

    I never heard of the brand of the psu i would go for corsair antec Thermaltake or a well known psu.. Maybe someone can give me a second opinion
  6. phew, Xigmatek is very good brand for PSU if you want to know. Especially Centauro series. Google it for sure.

    So, can someone use 660 TI give hint here?

    Then yes, you should be able to get a 660 Ti. In the future if you want to upgrade, you could always get another 660 and run 2 in SLI mode instead of spending $400 more on a 670 and having a 660 sitting around doing nothing :D

    It'll be great if i can spend for another 660 ti :D. But i think for now, single 660ti is enough to playing with medium setting on 1080p isn't it?
  9. Yeah, should be plenty.

  11. 660ti is a good card, faster than a 580, and at that reso you should be fine.

    for comparison im running a 670, ultra settings, almost every time above 60, even if it drops to 50's i don't notice it due to the all the action going on.
    im on 1080p, running 4ghz cpu
