My System Specs


Check out HWC review for your video card on bf3 here: GTX 660 Ti Roundup (ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, Galaxy, MSI)

It shows 33 min, 54 average frame rate on 1080p maxxed settings. This is with an i7 3930K with 1866mhz memory in quad channel.

To me, a very picky and hardcore gamer, this means the 660ti isn't good enough for bf3. FPS needs a close to 60 minimum frame rate. In fact I prefer it when games don't dip below 60 fps as when you run at a solid 60 or higher it feels much more immersive than a solid 30-50. Many will say "you can't tell", and that's just not true. FPS games especially have a much better feel at a solid 60.

So often i hear that a 660ti or a 670 is "all you'll ever need for single monitor 1080p gaming". I disagree.
Even HWC own data shows that a 680gtx has below a 60 fps minimum.

If you're looking for a perfect bf3 experience get a 680gtx or 7970, or greater. Look at HWC own data on minimum/ave frame rates and put them to your own standards.

My trifire unlocked 6950 rig plays bf3 at great frame rates with a stock clock 8150.
