  1. The 7750 is your best bet. But you will not run battlefield 3 at 60fps, at least not at 1080p.
  2. Do I need to upgrade my power supply? It's 300 :c
  3. It's cool, I'm not looking for ultra settings lol. If it can do battlefield 3 60 fps at medium then I'm happy!
    Edit: My resolution is 1980 x 1020 and I run bf3 at low settings with like 10 fps.. IT HURTSSs

    If you upgrade the power supply, you will have more options, so it would be a good idea. I recommend this:

  5. A 7750 may get you up around Medium, but not a 60 fps, if you put a decent power supply in there, and get a 7790 or higher (or nvidia equivalent) you should be good to go....though it depends on what resolution you're playing at.

    Edit: just saw your resolution, you'll need a PSU upgrade and something a little beefier than a 7750 to hit 60+ on med/high

    You will run it on low with around 40fps with the 7750.

    400W (or greater) power supply recommended

  8. Let's say I upgraded my power supply to 400. What gfx card will I need to get medium 60 fps @ 1980 x 1020? D:
  9. 7850 will run at 55ish on high at full 1080, so definitely 60+ on medium, i'd guess the 7790 will hit 60 on medium no problem
  10. So I should be looking at atleast 400 watt supply and 7790 for medium 60 fps/high 40ish fps?

    If you're think 7790, its a good choice. This card will give you the most bang for your buck. However, a
    500W (or greater) power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connector recommended.
