You can enable it, but you're definitely not going to enjoy the 20 fps you get :x.

Why even bother? Trying not to be mean...but 20fps is being on the nice side.

My system spec are,
Benq G2420 HD LCD Monitor - 1900x1080
Sapphire AMD Radeon 6850
AMD Phenom X4 955 BE @ 3.2Ghz
Asrock Extreme 870
Corsair 2x2GB RAM

I am able to play BF3 in 1900x1080 with medium settings @ 40-45fps, and high settings @30-35fps, and ultra settings @25fps. If overclocking my processor to say around 3.6 Ghz and overclock my GPU a bit, can i play BF3 in Ultra settings. Someone from their own experience can suggest whether overclocking will improve my sys performance or not. Thanks

Overclock the CPU as far as you can on its stock voltage, crank up the GPU's voltage to bios limit and overclock it as hard as you can.

with that setup, whatever you do it will be slide show...

I have 6850 in CF (and Q9650@ 4GHz) powering monitor@1920x1200 and still have lots of stutter if I play in ultra... but to me high is more than enough because I can not tell the difference between high & ultra...

Well, when presented with the option of doing nothing or doing something, I always opt for the latter. ;)
