At 1920x1080 you are looking at 40-45 fps at high settings with that GPU. Did you reinstall windows when you upgraded the CPU? If not, you should do that.

No way that card will play BF3 on Ultra.. sorry... All the best Brett Best solution Inductor August 25, 2012 12:33:21 AM Battlefield 3 requires a quad core and at least a GTX 560. The 460 has a graphics clock of 675Mhz the 560 does 810-950 according to the website. Even having a 560 is not going to allow you to fully enjoy the game with everything on ultra and a 1920x1080 resolution. The x3 450 is dated so even if you buy a new card, you still will experience poor fps.

He gets similar FPS to you, there isn't anything you can do aside from upgrading your video card. It was good a few years ago, but its now low end. catsup August 25, 2012 4:13:38 AM so i should get both a new processor and graphics card? that sucks!! thanks for the answers anyway. catsup August 25, 2012 4:13:51 AM Best answer selected by catsup.
