As the title says. I was trying to play Heroes and Generals over the weekend but the 5770 is ridiculous. I get sub 30 FPS on average, thats not even accounting for the drop when zooming in etc. Does anyone know which will be better? I cant seem to find any benchies. Thanks!

get a better gpu or with some motherboards you can use virtu gpu technology meaning you combine performance of dedicated and integrated both

the 5770 is much better than the onboard gpu of the 3770k. seriously, even the onboard gpu of AMD's Llano A8's whips the ass of intel's "HD4000". no contest.

Ok thanks. I was looking at getting a GTX 680 for around $400, but arent the new cards coming out any day now? I thought there was supposed to be a 50% performance bump (but its all speculation). Anyone have any intel? Thanks.

if you are talking about the 780 titan, then the answer is a doubtful "yes". based on the 3dmark result, it is theoretically much more powerful than nvidia's fastest flagship - the 690 by about 10~15%. also, it will probably cost around $1000 per pop. I'd rather buy the 680 or the 7970 to play with for the time being and then - should i need to - buy another one and run it on SLI/Xfire than wait for a showboat card that'll cost me a leg.

Ok thanks. Yeah, $1000 is insane. I cant justify that. GTX 670 = $360. Radeon HD 7870 LE = $240. It seems like the performance is pretty close. Wouldn't the 7870 be a better deal? PS. I'm also would prefer a low noise card, thanks.

the 7870LE is an absolute steal for its price. but it also draws more power and generates a little bit more noise. still, i will absolutely recommend it since the price : performance it gives is phenomenal and ,ultimately, its pros outweighs its cons.
-edit-
i've read that the 7870LE is based on AMD's tahiti family and not the original 7870's pitcairn family which means that it can even be xfire with a 7950 if you match their clock speeds.
