Why would I want a car a skateboard has four wheels too


Skateboard doesn't have a combustion engine.

A better comparison would be "why would i want a lexus when my pinto does the same thing"


Having a terrible GPU is the equivalent of not being a car.

A 660 is hardly terrible. Its a solid card.

I actually want a 1977 AMC Gremlin. :(

Mostly since it's from the year of my birth.

because bf3 is nearly 3 years old?


Can a 660 even get 60 frames out of BF3 on ultra?

It'll run at 1080p just fine, but probably drop into the 40's. Would make more sense for consistent frames to lower a couple settings.

My 550TI ran it pretty damn well on ultra, i dont know the exact framerate though. Id say the 660 has a chance.

Because I play all my games in 3D, which effectively doubles the resolution to 3840x1080.

660 runs bf3 on ultra plus FXAA high over 80fps

Dips under 60 if you turn FXAA up more.
