Hello,
So I just started to play games in my PC and want to upgrade my stock GPU. I will only be playing with a single 24 inch monitor and was wondering what would be a good card. I want to play crysis 2 and BF3 on max settings. Thanks.

Specs:
Intel Core i7 2600 3.4Ghz
8Gb DDR3 RAM
Corsair Enthusiast series 750W PSU.

CPU doesnt matter as much, its mainy GPU heavy BF3, if he needs to buy a single card.... go with the 570 as itll prob play ultra with MSSA off, because being realistic, not many systems can run it with MSSA X4 unless you have 2x 580 GTX

can you play 64 player multiplayer with out slow-downs lag... if so iv wasted my money, lol, i think i have like minumin FPS of 50, which keeps me live in the game in high action, i find im making alot more kills against players that maybe are laggin

You will be fine with a GTX 560 ti if you play is 64 players maps. As long as your CPU can handle it. i play in 64 player servers all the time with no lagg. but just to take the strain off you pc and if your that worried about it, maybe a GTX 560 ti 448 core could be a solution without breaking the bank

If your budget is $500-600 then 2 6950 2gb's are a great choice. 1080 on ULTRA with 4x MSAA and 16x aniso antifiltering and I never dip below 70 fps. Maybe on larger maps with 64 players I could dip into the 50s but thats just the territory.
