Can a single GTX 670 max Battlefield 3?

At 1920x1080 of course. I'm planning to upgrade from my GTX 460 (which maxes Crysis like a champ) sometime this year and the GTX 670 is looking like my card of choice. It doesn't have to run the game at 60FPS, as long as it's around 30 I'm happy.

30 FPS isn't exactly maxing it even if it's acceptable to you.

That's your opinion. There's no official definition of maxing. A lot of people consider maxing a game to be running the game at the maximum settings available at the highest resolution (Generally 1920x1080) with a smooth framerate (30 frames per second).

30 Isn't always that smooth. Lol. Just sayin.... users that become accustomed to 60 can't stand 30.

30fps on PC is the equivalent of 15fps on consoles, it's pig disgusting, hell I can barely stand 45

Also, there's no way in hell you're getting 30fps regardless at 1920x1080 with everything on Enthusiast and Maxing out AA. Sorry bucko, but even your crackpot definition of maxing doesn't fly here.

Huge difference between 30 and 60 anyways.

the human eye and brain can not physically sense over 24fps anyway.

What are you talking about? The eye can sense over 200fps if the frame in question is distinct enough (like black on whites).

That said, the difference between playing in 30 and 60 is one I can live without. The problem is when the frame rate drops all of sudden and it falls bellow 20, that's not nice.

actually, there is. the 'maxing' refers to the settings. you either have every setting, at its maximum highest possible value, or you are not 'maxing' the game. it has NOTHING to do with framerate. if 'maxing' the game means getting 10fps, then don't run it maxed.
