  1. Max out? No.
    1080 on High Quality? Yes

    It's not a bad machine you have there, sure the CPU might be a bit out of its league in some games but regarding FrostBite engine games you will probably do just fine. Also if you go on to play BF4 after

    Your GPU on the other hand is a bit on the slow side, but again > It will probably do BF3 fine. My 580 could do BF3 fine so that's what I am using as a base for my knowledge.
  2. In 1024x768 absolutely :)
  3. Best answer
    at 1024x768 probably yes. my GTX580 could not max out bf3 at 1080p.

    Also consider your definition of 'maxed out' if you mean ultra everything, full AA, HBAO etc. then that is always going to be difficult. Everything on high, with some AA is a lot easier and looks very similar when gaming.
  4. yeah everything on ultra at 1024x768 would that be fine?
    i have good enough answers anyway thanks everyone for quick replies

    A GTX 660 is a faster in DX11 games than a 580, and trades blows with it in older effects. My GTX 660 GC comes very close to maxing BF3, but on ultra I fall to ~45 fps in larger multiplayer battles at 1080p. It's worth noting that the 660 GC I have has the voltage increased to almost the maximum amount allowed on 660s, with a high factory overclock.

    So yes, at 1024x768 he should get max settings. (Unless he does something stupid like 16xAA).

    Ah yes I forgot to mention, I consider maxing out to include constant 60fps.
