Default EVGA gtx 460 1gb (Crossfire)

EVGA 01G-P3-1373-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Thats the card im planning to get and i play a game called "crossfire" alot. I avg about 60 fps.. which is very bad for that game. Im building a new pc in the next month and want to know how well it will run that game. Can someone please give me an estimate or an answer of what my average fps will be in that game with that card. I will also be using an AMD phenom II x4 3.5ghz 970 with 8gb of gskill 1600 DDR3 ram.

Welcome to the forum!

First of all, if you want to game 8GB is totally useless. Unless you want to do do VM or cad or thing like that. Stick to 4GB it's far enough. I can't tell you how much FPS but your game should be good on that with a good CPU so the 970 can fit the bill. That + a good 890 mobo will be just what you need:)
