Re: Ordering a new card tomorrow...
As far as FC2 goes in the link I provided, I guess my question would be why is the 5870 only 6FPS behind the stock 470 in averages but 15 in mins?
I only mentioned the 5970 because I noticed the stock 470 equals its mins and passes them when OCed. The stock 5970 beats the stock 470 by 25FPS in averages and by 15 when the 470 is OCed. I was also surprised that was with 8xAA which is supposed to the 5800s strong point.
Yes, I know it's FC2 and it's not like the 5870 and 5970 are putting up poor averages. They are not.
