playing on 1600 x 900 resolution medium to high settings ( even if i lower them i dont expercience much of a difference )
Yeah they are right then. To overclock your CPU, you have to raise your FSB such that it multiplies with the multiplier to result in your desired clock speeds.
Like 100 MHz FSB x 40X = 4.0 GHz (4000 MHz)
And yes, I have to agree with Ninjawithagun. Your CPU is too weak to run Battlefield 3. Your video card is just fine, but it would not let you play on high settings properly.
An FX 6300+ or i5 Quad Core+ is needed for modern games.
Preferably FX 8350 or i5 4670K for AMD and Intel respectively.
Add a total of 8 Gigs of RAM to that as well. Then, changing GPU depends on your budget and financial conditions since that system would take some money due to Z87 / AM3+ motherboards and possibly a better PSU too.
