Hello, I know there is a lot of these threads out on the forum. I couldn't find one really specific to my needs, It's kind of like fill in the blanks. As you can tell I am a complete No0b, I really just want to switch from console gaming to PC gaming. As mentioned in the title I would like to be able to play BF3, BO2, And future titles like BF4, and the next CoD. My budget is 800 no more then that. I would like to be able to play all games on medium to high settings. I would really appreciate it if you guys took the time to answer! Thanks for your time, Branden.
I know that the HD7770 is capable of doing very good job (got it myself), but if you want to play BF4 in the future, HD7870 would be definitely much better choice to save up to.
The radeon 7750 could go medium to high settings (not ultra) on crysis 3, so theoretically speaking the radeon 7770 could get a smooth 40-60 fps on ultra settings, so im seeing that it could run bf4, that is unless he decides to ultra everything, then the 7870 would come in handy, but you could always upgrade it in the future. My advice is, if you are on a tight budget, stick with the radeon 7770
I recommend HD7770 too, but there will be no 60fps on Crysis 3 Ultra settings (max 40fps, average 30+-, tested by myself). It's going to handle BF4 on at least low settings though with high framerate.
I suggest other solution - get HD7770 and a second HD7770 to crossfire afterwards, when you decide that you want to have one level higher details or resolution. It costs only about 120$+- and you can add it whenever you admit you don't have enough gpu power.
