Default Re: New Gaming Build - Need some advice

My EVGA 560Ti Superclocked gets just about the same fps as my friends 570 in BF3 with the same settings. If you read some reviews, it even comes out above in some games...

I'm running default settings atm (which are at High, not Ultra), and my GPU is at about 55% load. I've had issues with changing settings in this game, so I'm just waiting for a while till they fix it or I feel like tackling it again. It looks fine for right now for me on High settings, so I don't really care.

Thanks for all your help with this project Sean.
