PostSubject: Video cards   Tue Jan 31, 2012 9:36 am

So, having been granted work due to under staffing at my dads work, I have finally got some money Grin
money which is going strait into a new gcard, only question is what? thought you guys might be able
to help me out as im not the hottest when it comes to knowing about cards n stuff.

So heres my situation, I have atm a Sapphire Radeon hd 5770, which is okay but I need it to be able
to run Bf3 on med graphic settings instead of low. I have a $224 AUD budget to try find my next card.

So post and let me know what I should get, be it another radeon or some spanking gtx560 or w/e its called

Cheers Spleen

Yeah man my GTX 560 ti (hawk edition) cards are awesome! I run mine on low graphics to try and beat my odd lag issues, I get 170 FPS more often than not. Awesome cards.

Gaddo's got that spot on.

Tell you what though spleen - talk to Zoomie about it, he will no doubt help you out like he so generously helped me.

Now I repay him by shooting the hell out of him every chance I get! Wink

Ugh maybe I should just get another sapphire radeon 5770 cause at the end of the day, no decent card will come under anything that 300 usd ><

perhaps running it with crossfire will at least bump it up enough, I hope

Yeah mate, how longs the work position going to hold out? Its $224.00 going to change even a little? $400 would probably see you in a much better position, and its only like another $150 more.....

I know what money constraints are all about though mate. Once upon a time I wasnt the magnificent head of Reynholm Industries that I am today you know....

if youre really stuck for work - why not try working for me!

The new 7950's are out but are still abit pricey. Give them one or two months
by then you will have more cash and prices might come down abit ($500 ish maybe)

So my temporary job has lasted longer than I anticipated and we are waaaaay behind in the production line giving me more time to work (that and im semi sabotaging it so work will drag out for longer Twisted Evil )

Anywho just got capped and all I can do is chew on my nails and play skyrim for the next three days untill I get uncapped >< so untill I get uncapped I wont be able to visit 50% of the sites I try and im getting very curious to know what specs mine match up to this MSI GTX560 ti Hawk edition you all have.

So, if your bored enough, if you can be bothered, and if you can find it, you can FIND SPLEENS AWNSER (Ateam music plays in your head)

Lol, but yeh my new budget has gone up to 450 AUD and is ever increasing

sorry for my shit formatting of this post, personally I blame tui for making their beer so damned addictive

Thanks for everyones advice so far it goes along way with a computer newb such as I

Is that the Sapphire Radeon, the gigabyte or what? I can never tell when you guys give me numbers I also need the name before it so I can find it easily :/ I think I found one of them, the gigabyte one im sure your referring to is the one with three fans on it?

Awesome mate! Tell us how many frames youre getting on Battlefield!

Suss it out on Low, Med, High and Ultra.... just to compare.

Going to be smooth sailing for you from now on mate!

Good stuff! Grin

Okay, forgive me for any typos just got my new keyboard and its gonna take awhile to get used to, the results for my gcard for bf3 are

Low: 100+ avg
Med:75-85
High: 55-65
Ultra: 35-45

So all in all im bloody happy with the results thus far, can run it on medium like I always wanted with a good frame rate that will never drop below what my monitor is capable of, will update this post soon with results from skyrim Razz

Okay so I ran skyrim @ Med High and Ultra and was surprised to see the differences

Med: 57-62 Looked abit shit
High: 57-63 Looked nice
Ultra: 55-62 Looked awesome

So wait, WHAT THE FU

Sorta mixed with feelings on skyrims graphical content, its like it was programed to only access what was needed for a basic gaming monitor being 60 fps

Perhaps this is a good thing, perhaps I dont give a fuck and ill just have to enjoy it on Ultra till my cpu melts itself to my motherboard Smile
