I truly doubt you are playing BF3 at ultra settings with a 6950...unless its at 800x600 res. IIRC, BF3 was designed with SLI'ed 580s in mind for the eye candy settings.

Yes, I'm not running all settings at Ultra, but I am running with Ultra textures (@ 1920 X 1200), as I said in my post. The other settings are a mix of high and ultra I believe.

I used to max out BF3 at 1080p on 1 6950, can't remember average FPS, but it was 30-60 depending on the situation. It would be like 50 just driving in a tank.

What really puts me apart is it's con's and pro's seeing how the 660 ti pe from msi looks alot better compared to the images ive seen from the 7950, but the 7950 offers 3gb :| better for long term graphics card. I don't know how long 2gb will hold out for seeing how games are drastically increasing power from a GPU.

3GB of ram is really only beneficial with the larger resolutions: 1440p, 1600p, & surround resolutions. 1080p-1200p wont see any advantage with 3 gb ram vs 2 gb.

The only boost 7950 that I see atm is the powercolor for $320 at newegg, and 660ti's are about $299. I think I would get the 7950 if i wasn't planning on 3D or adding a second card later.
