  1. Been getting back into BF3, but I'm getting lag. I'm really sensitive with my lag. I can have 40-50 FPS in a game, but still claim it unplayable. I've tested CanYouRunIt? and it just so happens to be my Graphics Card isn't the best for BF3 (AMD Radeon HD 6670).
    What would be the best (but cheapest) graphics card for running BF3 at a steady 60 (or more) FPS?

    Yes, but you're going to want to future proof too!

    yeah well seeing as the only game that i get around 60 fps on is arma 3, (which is a pretty demanding game) i think he is good for at least a couple of years before he cant run anything in decent quality

    Wrong.
    Games are now starting to break boundaries and begin to push them limits we once had to the side, he's going to need good stuff in the next year or two.

    Games have always broken boundaries hence the term "innovation" Bf3 pushed the "boundaries" of what was expected. Then arma 3 came out (along with Bf4 and all the other next gen updates) But seeing as how the new "boundaries" were not that different then before, he should be good for at least a couple of years (if he wants to run more modern games at medium graphics. If you want to run games at 1920 by 1080 full AA and all the highest settings for every game, then you would want to upgrade your graphics card, seeing as games are breaking the boundaries bit by bit)

  13. Listen to me, max settings everything, at 1920x1080, grab a xfx 7870, like me, overclock it 200mhz, or more if you feel like it, then it'll perform at the level of a 7950. And its cheap too! Less that 200 bucks last time I checked.
