hey guys

i currently have i5 3470 + 6870 + Corsair 2x4GB 1600

& my native resolution is 1440x900 . i am able to run any game at gr8 settings . i ran Crysis at 50-60 FPS with no problem .

but i was thinking whats the best upgrade option for my graphic card to run some games better at higher settings ?

will 7870 cover my needs or i gonna need GTX 670 ?

i want something like 15-30 FPS improvement . i think its not that hard with such low res !

I think 7870 would be more than enough at that resolution and would give you a very solid performance increase. 670 would be overkill at that res so there wouldn't be enough benefit to justify the extra cost.

Oh so 7870 . thx alot . can you be more specific about FPS ? how much will i gain with 7870 ?

lets focus on GPU intensive games ! because i think i5 3470 is good enough to handle cpu intensive ones . am i correct ?

the 7870 is anywhere from 25-40% faster than the 6870, depending on the game. The performance difference between the two is substantial:

And drivers have gotten considerably better since that review, so the gap is probably even wider at this point. The FPS you'll get from the 7870 depends on the game, but we can take Crysis 3 for example, as it is one of the most stressful games out right now. At your resolution with a 7870, you should have no problem running the game at 45-ish or higher FPS average at high settings with the highest-resolution textures.

You can also overclock the 7870 pretty easily to match the performance of a stock 7950, so if you're willing to overclock the 7870 a little, you will be able to hit ultra on the game (and most other games) with very little issue at your res. Also, your CPU is fine and would be a good match with the 7870.

Thanks alot but 45 is not THat perfect . i was talkin about something like 50-60 . nothin less .
i wanna make this expensive upgrade worth ! not something that will force me to upgrade again in half a year

do you think GTX 670 can give Great FPS in games like Crysis 3 ? all that does matter is Textue Quality & PostProcessing . i have no problem with medium shadows or AA off or other unnoticible settings that jst eat Performance . in some games like metro i gonna need 2x or 4x AA
but i have no problem with high quality ( instead of veryhigh ) & DX11 tess + Blur off

so i think GTX 670 + i5 3470 + 2x4GBram + 1440x900 Res + Not fully MAxedout +

Crysis and Metro are both stressful games even at somewhat lower resolutions, and your requirement of 50-60 fps constant with good settings may require something on the order of a 7950 or GTX670 (as you were talking about). I would probably opt for the 7950 because it is cheaper than the 670 and will still do what you want.
