BF3 470GTX VS 470 GTX in SLI?
 
So I get 43 FPS with evrything on High and Ultra on Textures running a single 470 GTX. My question is what are people seeing who are running a 470GTX SLI setup? Trying to decide if it is worth the money. Thanks Guys.

I get full v-sync 60 fps at 1280x800(native resolution of my projector) on ultra settings. I tried 1920 x1080 got between 70-130 fps, but my sandy bridge i7 at 4.8ghz really lets the cards go to their full potential. Anywho if you are on the bridge about getting another 470, the pair really can cut through some games, faster than a 590 by abit if you can get a decent overclock on them.:afro2:

nearly 60 fps all the time @ 1900x1200 running all ultra settings aside from AA. It's set to 2x. See my sig for details

Very good to know. Thanks for the input. I can squeeze 53 FPS when I OC my card a little but not in ULTRA.

I'm not sure if you play SP or MP, but I generally never use max graphics settings when playing MP FPS games. So as far as the settings go I would really avoid HBAO, shadows and vsync. Also as far as I remember with BF series, there are alot of videos settings that make VERY little difference in the looks while you play but they all add up in lowering your fps.Obviously you want things like draw distance to be at max. I get around 59-70 fps depending on the maps. Single gtx 470 @700/1750 and i7 2600k and 8gigs of ram.
