Hey Guys! The lag is so bad on my computer that even the sound lags out. I probably get like 5-10 FPS most likely less. I saw a similar computer to mine that ran the game fine on similar settings I have right now and it runs 30-40 fps on Medium fine.. My game cannot even run on extra low on 800 x 600 screen settings. It just chugs along. Most of the time my gun will not even load in front of me. Or i'll die, see the notification at my screen and the death will register 15 seconds later. I downloaded the new drivers on the site and have installed them...but still the same issue! Is there any other drivers I should use? Here is my DXDiag. any ideas? It maybe my mobo however this set up should run BF3 fine!

What's your internet connection and ping?

Is your PSU good enough to support the new card?

Yes. I don't think that is the issue because the game itself is running like crap the entire time...not in brief spurts as i f had a latency issue.

Most definitely. I recently upgraded to a 600PSU. Is there anyway I would be able to tell if it is operating under powered? Maybe if I installed it wrong?

To OP - if your CPU is E6600 and your PC is a HP 'Media Center Desktop PC' than your CPU - RAM combo isn't powerful enuogh to run BF3.

Try single player first. SP is much less CPU demanding.

If SP runs much better, then you know the issue is CPU and probably to some extent RAM. The game likes 6-8gb of RAM.

You can try running some hardware monitoring software to check CPU, GPU, and RAM usage.

Although if something like a gun isn't loading and deaths aren't registering properly that does sound like a connection issue.

Hi :) 

Not enough CPU or Ram...

All the best Brett :)

560ti has 2x 6-pin connectors last time I checked, have you made sure they are both plugged in fully?

Also, what make/model is your PSU.

on top of that I'll have to say your CPU will bottleneck your 560

If that's a recognized brand 600 W PSU , it shouldn't be a problem. Yes, Make sure that the 2 - 6pin connectors are connected like Antizig said. Like others said, your CPU would be a bottleneck, but I still think it should be able to run well with medium settings at lower resolutions.

Sorry I don't agree, it should run at a decent framerate on medium with his setup.

EDIT- Sorry Brett, thought he had a Q6600 :)

I read it as Q6600! doh!

E6600 is not powerful enough, sorry. Apologies to Brett too :)

It should be OK for single player if thats not running OK then check your temps.

Did you have a lot of background programs running?
Have you tried scanning for computer virus? (Please make sure it's at least up-to-date)
It is true that your CPU isn't top of the line or anything but it's just a little weird to have 5~10FPS, even under 800x600 resolution. Or are sure it's as low as that? Have you tried using something like FRAPS to show the current FPS?

http://www.enterbf3.com/information/538-minimum-requirements

This shows that the minimum spec for Battlefield is a Core2Duo @ 2.4
It should be able to play on low/medium spec.

I think its a software problem rather than a hardware problem. Try and minimize what you are running when playing battlefield. Or try re-installing battlefield...might help.
If not as a last resort you could re-install windows but that is last resort.

Only way you could've installed it wrong was if the 2x 6 pin power connectors were not connected properly. But, I'm assuming that's not the case since your system is booting up. Another very silly question - Did you change the monitor output from your motherboard to the graphics card ?

Worst Case Scenario, I would say you might be looking a windows re-install.

You can also try a repair install with BF3.

Have you looked at the PCI-E speed, I once had a card that when I put it in it would run at 4x mode instead of 16x, I got some seriously low FPS. After a bios reset and re checking, it went back up to 16x, you can check it with CPUZ i believe.

Might be worth looking at your CPU utilisation during game play to check if it's a CPU bottleneck issue.
