Probably not, since it has hyperthreading it will have 2 extra virtual cores. (4 in total) and it boost up to 2.7. However, in battlefield 3, a CPU intensive game, there will most likely be a bottleneck. I recommend to buy your own parts and build a desktop. Or put more money into a gaming laptop.

Thanks for the answer, when it bottlenecks it will it be at unplayable FPS or would I just have to lower the graphics quality?

The desktop is the best solution but I cannot sacrifice mobility over power and my budget is pretty limited :(

According to this article, http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-740M.899... you have to lower the setting to low, in order to get around 40fps. Scroll down until you see Battlefield 3. EDIT: This also depends on your laptop's resolution.
