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.

Thanks :) 

Current set up:

i7 3820 @ 4.2
16 dd3 Kingston hyperX @ 1600 quad chan
Asus rampage IV gene
120 Intel 520 SSD
500 HDD
AMD 6870 reference card (such an upgrade xD)

1 1080P monitor Maxed out should do it and you'll get about 80+fps in BF3 single player and 70+ in multiplayer at stock speeds (my results on an EVGA Superclocked 680)

Overclocked (if about the same speed than me) will be around 80 to 100 all the time

** Make sure to turn V-Sync off as it cause a random micro second lag (don't know why)

PS: sorry i don't have any of the other games so i can only speak about BF3

1 GTX680 is enough. What do you mean you can't find any benchmarks? Google GTX680 review or benchmarks and you'll see tons of it. Here's one

If you'd like to save some money, get the GTX670. It performs around 90% of the GTX680 but around $70+ cheaper.



Thanks for the quick reply but I mentioned gaming while in 3D. Those are just normal benchmarks (no 3D monitor/nvidia glass etc)

lol thanks for the reply but its not a MSI Lightning edi, which is said to be the best card for oc. and 4ghz would just be needed if i planned on running 3 monitors. Gotta have the best to last me :)

I disagree. 3D vision does not require more memory than running in non-3D. It needs more GPU power. More than 2GB VRAM only benefits multi-monitor configuration like gamin in 3D surround.

Yeah, you'll don't need more memory, but you'll need a 120hz monitor and the NVIDIA 3d kit (i don't have so i can't compare performance, sorry)
