No, I'm sorry, those games wouldn't come close to running at medium to high at decent frame rates.

The overall setup is quite weak. The single core semperon and the GT430 being the main factors. And unlocking isn't always possible.
You could tell us your budget. We can help you afford a better rig.

i only went for the gt430 because it was said to be a very good gaming card and my budget is only about 140-160 uk sterling, soooo

So you've already bought the rig?

Not sure where you heard that a GT430 is a 'very good gaming card', but I can tell you that it isn't. A HD 5670 or a HD 6670 can be considered as an entry level gaming card, but a GT430 cannot be considered as one.

All videos on youtube can't be trusted. They may post low end rigs, but they may be running better.

Battlefield 3 WONT RUN AT ALL with on single core CPU.

As already said the GT430 is weak. There will be videos on youtube with Ultra quality gameplay from a card that no way will run that high, the video is just labeled that way.

550ti minimum to run BF3 at high with decent FPS. I do it at the moment and really thats the minimum you want. The card has all its VRAM eaten and runs solid at 100% even after a beefy overclock.

Your CPU wont stand a chance even as a dual core. Multiplayer chews up all the cores its given and pushes them hard.

If you have £180 budget you can do it now though

hello guys ive been laughing in your faces your the ones who need to know a bit more about your techs
bf3 - YES 20-40 fps
bfbc2 - YES 30-45fps
bf2 - YES 80 fps

sempron unlocked to Athlon ii x2 2.8ghz
gt430 works a treat amazingly, cant believe it works after the comments here

Actually we are laughing at you.

You feel the need to come here and lie that you can run BF3 at high at 40FPS on a cheap dual core and a bargain bin card.

Congrats on the unlock btw always nice to get something for extra
