Hi all, I've been doing my research and im convinced on buying the MSI gtx 680 lightning card and want to get into 3D gaming. I can't find any Gaming in 3D benchmarks, anyone know how much fps you'd get with ultra in bf3 or most games in 3D? (hitman ab, farcry 3 etc) How much of an fps drop is it normally? Would I need two cards? I would be running just one monitor @ 1080p.
Current set up:
i7 3820 @ 4.2
16 dd3 Kingston hyperX @ 1600 quad chan
Asus rampage IV gene
120 Intel 520 SSD
AMD 6870 reference card (such an upgrade xD)
It's actually quite simple, running in 3D will usually impact almost half the performance of non-3D (this is usually the case for last gen cards). There are a couple games that the performance impact will be less (ie. Crysis 2).
