Please tell me if i'll be able to run bf3,BLOPS2, and Skyrim on high graphic settings with atleast 30fps or if it can even handle medium settings, also tell me about what fps i'd get on those games with high graphic settings if can. I want to play all of my games with a really good fps on high settings. I also have the avermedia broadcaster hd. Please make adjustments to it, I'm willing to go to 550 to 600 dollars. Thank you

For gaming, you want an Intel CPU.

What is that power supply you mentioned? Since you never said what it was, I'll assume you'll need a new one.

This one will max out most games (BF3 will play on high settings at 60 fps):

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

If that's too expensive, you can go down a bit:

In order to play BF3 on high in 1080p u will need at least an GTX560 (BF3 favors nVIDIA). This is a good option: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Still if u have money u should prefer HD 7850 (BF3 on ultra in 1080p):

HD 7850 will not play BF3 on full ultra.

@OP: What kind of power supply you have? Model and brand please!

40 fps single player. Will be 30 fps multiplayer. It's not playable.

Err 30fps is more than playable, as the human eye cant tell the difference after 24fps.

We actually see 16 frames per second, our brain molds them into motion. But anything above 10 fps will appear as smooth motion. This is because it takes 1/16th of a second for a picture to fade off the back of our eye.

As long as a game doesn't drop below 30FPS I don't mind. I can barely tell the difference between 30 and 60 FPS.

If you cannot tell difference between 30 fps and 60 fps you need to see an eye doctor.

30 FPS is laggy as hell, especially in fast paced multiplayer competitive games like Battlefield 3.

i agree 30 FPS sucks at least try to stay around 40+ FPS that's why i upgraded my HD 4870 1GB to a Sapphire HD 6950 2GB OC ?

I stand by my previous comment. There is a difference between the 60 and 30, but its not that big.

I have a 7870 so I get like 50+ FPS in everything anyway. Probably not Metro 2033 though. I haven't tried it.

I don't really understand why you think 30 fps isn't laggy. Did you try limiting your FPS to 30 and playing battlefield 3 multiplayer?
