    Considering that the 670 is 25% faster than the 570, I don't know how in the world you wouldn't notice how much faster they are:laugh: I'd step up if I had the option.

    They are well put together. Overclock like crazy, mine is quiet and runs cool. I'm not getting the FPS I'd like with BF3 ,
    but I'm sure it is the CPU and Graphic's slot holding it back. I still Get all the Candy though and that was my main reason
    for getting it. I actually have it set up on a 55" 720P TV right now and it Looks Real nice even at 720P. I'm sick as shit
    today though and don't even feel like gaming .
    Raw says thanks.

    Ive been playing BF3 for most of the day today (starting from last night...been a long shift) even though I have a love hate relationship with it.

    but one thing that pisses me off to no end is hit detection. I can snipe with a M40A5 at a guy at one of the windows from RU spawn in metro and i get a hit marker and bloodsplatters but it doesnt kill him, he turns around and sprays me with an LMG, SMG or G18C (full auto glock) and I die instantly - this is in hardcore mode mind you and the shot hit his chest.

    second thing is - guys who wade into a group of 5 enemies that are scattered around a small spot and he rapes every single one of them with a PkP pecheneg before a random guy from across where the group was holding out kill him with a sniper rifle or assault rifle. BUT BUT BUT, when i use the same gun and wade into the same group of enemies i get torn to shit each and every time i try.

    Why is it that in the hands of the enemies their guns seem to do 800% more damage compared to me when i used the same guns???

    Its not the first or the second time ive tried something like that.

    Then comes the problem i have with shotguns. aparantly eveything is more powerful the a shotgun at close range. I get off 2 shots pointblank into an enemies torso and he just kills me with one shot from his SMG or rifle. and the same problem happends when im using flechette rounds.

    Hit detection is so full of fucking shit in this game. In the beta - bullets used to fly around corners. this problem still exists. and im getting sick of it.


    I know I know...some of you guys will probably say "suck less" and fair play to you. I might not be a pro league FPs player, but at the same time im not some mindless lemming thats totally void of tactics and teamwork. Im no newcomer to fps games and ive spent a lot of time since i was young teen playing these games and now im 26 (or 27 - I forget)

    anyway...part of the problem could be because hit detection is done CLIENTSIDE instead of serverside like the previous game.

    It just annoys me to no end when I feel like my gun is made by fisherprice.

    670 is 25% faster than the 570

    Thanks for those links MT, that did the trick...I'm convinced. After looking at those links and also reading a few reviews on Overclockers Club:

    "Conclusion

    The bottom line as far as performance goes, is that the EVGA GTX 670 SC is a powerhouse that holds its ground even among the single GPU flagship cards from both NVIDIA and AMD
    Overall, the EVGA GTX 670 SC vastly exceeds expectations in performance despite being built on a ridiculously small PCB. It performs so well and at such a good price, I would recommend this GPU over any other card out there, even the GTX 680. Another no-brainer Approved stamp for EVGA!"

    Now I will be watching daily for that e-mail from EVGA. #111 and #119 in their queue.

    I should be slapped :slap: for not being able to find those links myself but I saved them to my favorites.

    Because M40A5 doesnt have enough power to kill with one shot even in hardcore mode maybe? (Apart from headshot)

    http://battlefield.wikia.com/wiki/M40

    (Scroll down to damage. The way damage works on BF3 is, say you have a gun like M40A5, which is 80-50, this means at point blank you will deal a base damage of 80, and from anything over 50 or so metres (usually) will deal 50 damage. Headshot are 2.0x damage.)

    I was going to say, 'If you had used the M98B then any shot in hardcore mode would be a one hit kill' because the minimum damage used to be 75, but the sneaky bastards mustve nerfed the gun in the last patch and funnily enough the minimum damage is now 59. :cry:

    Alex I didn't even know you were playing on that game on Oman. I was to busy trying to kill that fucker Littledongju at the Construction sight to get my Assault Medal. I'd had about 8 less deaths if I hadn't spent all my time hunting him and having him play Orhan on me. I was getting pissed, but at least the Medal came after finally gettin that fucker.

    I went after that gun early when I started BF3. Got it and have only fire 50 rounds through it.
    Not exactly sure why I have never used it, except I don't play Support much. I may have to try it out.
    I'm sure it needs attachments because of recoil, but most of them do. It was a beast in BC2 for sure.
    Remember using it as a sniper rifle by pop firing ?

    £35 is asking quite a lot for just an 'expansion pack' but I dunno... It does seem to give you quite a lot for the money.

    Not exactly sure if you are referring to Battlefield Premium when you quote £35, because it says £39.99 up above. But rumours say you get this for £39.99:

    Battlefield PREMIUM (most likely a ONE TIME FEE)
    20 new maps (across all 5 DLCs)
    20 new weapons (across all 5 DLCs)
    More than 10 new vehicles (across all 5 DLCs)
    More than 4 new game modes (across all 5 DLCs)
    More than 30 new Assignments (across all 5 DLCs)
    More than 20 new Dog Tags (across all 5 DLCs)

    World premier: 4.6.2012 at 1:00 PM (PST) / 9:00 PM (UTC) - @ E3 Press Event

    Two different packages (both include earlier access to DLCs)
    Package 1 - BF Premium + B2K (I think they mean + All DLCs +B2K)
    Package 2 - BF Premium + All DLCs

    I think EA wants to sell you hats, but DICE wants you all to buy ALL the DLC so as not to fracture the community.

    Premium to cost £35...though it its just the one off fee, I will most likely buy it. God knows i hate paying subscription fee's for stuff. At least if youre subscribed to porn mags or porn sites you get regular updates.

    Look at CoD Elite/Elite premium ETC ETC, how often do you see new content released for their subscribers?? All ive heard of so far are a less then a handfull of new maps.
