    Re: Trouble Deciding on a New GPU

    Ya, lag most of the time but every now and then I don't have it, I'm not sure why it is. I just assumed that they did some sort of upgrade to the graphics and when that happened my video card became an issue. I might wait for BF3 to come out before buying a card since the 570 and cards in that range are pretty pricey. I wonder if they'll have some "low end" cards when they come out with the new ones? Hey voodoo, do you have a link any websites that discuss GPU's in the works so I could do some reading up on them, if not it's cool but would appreciate it.

    Sounds like you might have the same issue that Gunney is having. He also said the game started lagging and stuttering more than it did before the last patch. I tried googling for discussions about people having similar problems with BC2 since the last patch and I couldn't really find anything recent.

    There's no real concrete info on the next generation graphics cards yet, the only thing that I've read is that the new Radeon's are going to be built on an even smaller manufacturing process than before (28nm vs. 40nm). In simple terms, this will allow AMD to create faster/more powerful chips. This is somewhat interesting because it has been a couple generations since the last time they used an improved manufacturing process. Radeon 6000 series, 5000 series and even some later 4000 series cards were all built on 40nm.

    here's one link, but it's just a brief news update

    Best Cards for the Money: April 2011 <- The introduction also talks all about the new cards coming out.

    Also, I always checkout Tom's Hardware's GPU charts before buying: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2...ndex,2673.html

    ... gives you a good feel for the performance difference between cards, and if spending the extra X dollars is worth it for the extra Y FPS.

    I did the 6950 and flashed it to 6970 specs (its very easy) and have had great luck with that
