How much will FPS will this get on Higfh or Medium settings on Battlefield 3, Crysis 3 and other hardware intensive games, and is there anything i should game about this setup, like the GPU, are there any other GPUs priced simularly but better?



Thanks :D

My advice, cut out the ssd for now and go with a better gpu, i would get a 1gb sapphire 7850.  I have that gpu and its great with thise guys, u should get 40 fps or so, u dont really need the ssd tht much

KK thanks

My FX-8320 (@4.2GHz) and HD 7850 2Gb (@1050MHz) give me around 75 FPS average in Battlefield 3 on high settings in 1080p.

Crysis 3 gives an average of 55-60 on medium.

With i5 you should have more than that.

You would be getting around 40-45 FPS at 1080p, max settings in BF3 with a 7850. Probably a good deal less with a 1GB card since BF3 uses about 1.3 GB at max settings even on light maps. Ditch the Haswell CPU and get a 6350/8350 instead. This should allow you enough money to grab a nice aftermarket GTX 760.

Dissentient what resolution are you playing at? If you say 1080p then you are full of shit. I just upraded from a 7850 (that I had running at 1220MHz core mind you, 2GB) and I had FREQUENT dips into the 40s on all lowest settings at 1080p. Different CPU's have almost no effect on performance in BF3. 

Changing multiplier from 20 to 22 on my 8320 gave me 10 FPS minimum and average FPS increase


Not sure I believe that, but ok. Unless you have a playthrough recording your screen with a camera and using a macro driven run in singleplayer then that isn't really credible.

Instead of getting 7580, im gonna get 7870, is that ok?

It would be better, yes. But why do you have to go with Intel? You can get a hell of a lot more performance out of an AMD system on a budget.

A 7870 is Better so yes thats fine. if i wiere you i would get a Higher Watt PSU so if you want to CFIRE in the future you can.

idk why is love intel but also love amd, but i just want to, i ve used them since 2001

Which edition of 7870 should i get Ghz edition or Core or double dissipation, what are the differences?

Fps on bf3 is VERY map related. Even gpu utilisation on my 7970's seem map related. It has caused confusion for me (for benching my clocks) aswell.

You certainly were doing somethign wrong.

With these settings

I'm having these framerates in multiplayer (tested on conquest large/caspian border):

If you insist, you can write a detailed instructions on how to benchmark and record things so that you're satisfied.


all 7870s are ghz editions

core and double dissipation are names of xfx coolers

there are also 7870 xt/le's but those are 79xx series cards, more powerfull but also more expensive

Honestly if i were you i would get a 8350 And a 7950... There you go OP stuff.

I agree. A better GPU is always more important than CPU for gaming. Getting a 7950 is better even if you have to get 8320 or 6350 with it.

But which edition of this gpu should i get?
