i have both of these cards, using the 470 atm, but i will need some extra muscle for bf3, just wondering if anyone had experience with either setup and what
temps and framerates i could expect from each. especially in the bf3 beta if anyone ran these setups. my rig is...


gigabyte 790fx mb
4 gb ram
b55 (unlocked to quad and oc to 3.6)

just looking for friendly advice, thanks in advance!! :hello:

^Don't mind him. 5870CFed will be a bit faster than 470s SLied. 1045T is not bottlenecking a 580, but it will if you go SLi. 955 also doesn't hold back a 470.

well i guess that ends the debate for me then, unfortunatly, as i tend to prefer the 470 to the 5870

ALSO the guy i bought this comp from said that this processor would hold me back if i crossfire....true?
side note, my rig at work has a 1045t @ 2.8 with a gtx580. is that processor holding the 580 back? thanks again in advance

1045t with 580 held back?
955 with 470 held back?
