6870? BF3!! Enough raw power?? Pls help!!
Hi, im still in dilemma whether to change to 6870 hawk frozer 3, currently using 9600gt.
Was at my friend's place today, he had a stock q9550 paired with a 6870 hawk frozer 3, 4 gb 667mhz & corsair hx-850.
He plays BF3 in resolution of 1280 x1024 and it was pretty fluid. I told him to play it on 1080p on his tv and at some intense
battle scenes it stutter and lag abit. Is it his processor bottlenecking or is it because of the resolution?
I read up and saw BF3 needed more than 1GB vram in 1080p. I personally run a c2d e8400@ 3.8ghz, 8gb 844mhz ram and corsair ax-750,
1080p monitor and think my cpu most likely be the bottleneck. Pls help and thanks loads!!
