Will this work? Tags: PC gaming Battlefield Video Games Last response: June 2, 2012 8:48 PM in Video Games Share JJ1217 June 2, 2012 3:58:15 AM Hi, I'm a first time forumer here. I'm thinking of buying a new computer to play battlefield 3 on high/ultra. Can someone tell me if these specs would be enough to do this? (Copied straight from the website) Intel Core i7 3770K 3.5 GHz CPU Turbo Boost 3.9GHz, nVidia GeForce GTX560 with 1GB Ram Dual Channel 8GB RAM 1TB SATA 3 7200rpm HDD, 24x Dual Layer DVD BURNER Onboard USB 3.0 & SATA 3 6Gb/s Ports Bluetooth v2.0, Multi Card Reader I know like half this information is not needed, but can I get an honest opinion whether it will work for high/ultra on bf3. -Thanks, JJ1217 More about : work fantastik250 June 2, 2012 4:50:33 AM Your video card will hold you back. Also the loading times may take a bit of time when using a HDD for BF3. You will get at best medium and choosing some high settings such as shadows and such. m 0 l JJ1217 June 2, 2012 6:04:03 AM What are your recommendations? I can upgrade to a GTX 580? m 0 l Related resources Will my RAM work with the I5-4590 with Z97 chipset? - Forum Will this work ? - Forum How will this work out? - Forum Is SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 good for work?? - Forum Will this work? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

If you're willing to go that high you have several options, GTX 580, HD 7870 or 7970, GTX 670. m 0 l JJ1217 June 2, 2012 6:28:25 AM Oh jeez GTX 580 is more than I anticipated. What is the best card in the price range of the GTX 560? Also for the HDD, what should i use instead? An SSD? If so what one? m 0 l fantastik250 June 2, 2012 6:50:36 AM Well, what impacts your gaming is the video card, based on your specs. Don't worry about an SSD if your budget doesn't allow it. You can go for the 560 Ti 2GB, GTX 570, HD 7850, 6950, or 6970. m 0 l JJ1217 June 2, 2012 11:31:39 AM Thanks a Ton! One more question, Out of the cards you just listed, (all seem suitably priced, so it doesn't matter) which one would perform better for BF3? (Its the only FPS i want on PC, so I honestly don't care about others) Thanks a ton for your help ~JJ1217 m 0 l fantastik250 June 2, 2012 8:48:54 PM According to Tom's Hardware's performance benchmark for Battlefield 3: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2012-vga-gpgpu/13-Ba... The 69xx and above, 570 and above will get you higher than 55 fps. If you were to put it at the extreme settings (highest settings possible) the frame rate will definitely be lower. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
