I think that you would be able to run the game decently, your processor is good, you have the recommended amount of RAM for the game, just your video card is low.

A lot of people are saying that Battlefield 3 is very well optimized so i'm pretty sure you should be able to run the game on medium settings.

You can also check on the website below to see if you can run the game. For me I hit the minimum settings because I only have an ATI Radeon 4850, but when I was running the beta I was running it with really good graphics.

In my opinion I like ATI video cards better so these are my picks for different price ranges.

My favorite video card is the ATI Radeon 6850, because it is a good price at only $155 and its has amazing performance.

The Radeon 6770 for $110 or,

Radeon 6950 for $240.

ATI had massive driver issues for a long time in bad company 2. Worth noting. Once you go over 200 dollars probably worth it to just grab a gtx 560 ti.

I have a 560 ti in my second comp and it ran the beta at 1920x1080 with acceptable frames at the settings for the beta. The 560 ti is a SOLID card.
