Can I run bf3 on this pc on ultra :)

I was getting a little carried away when I said ultra, but I still want top performance. I have played the campaign on my computer before and it ran very smooth and nice on high~ultra settings. I am more of an online player so now I want to purchase the game and I know online play can be a little bit more cpu heavy.

System:
Cpu: AMD dual core 64-bit 5600+ 2.8ghz (weakest part of my computer)
Graphics: Asus EAH6670 HD 1GB DDR5 (clocked at 900mhz for core and 1150mhz for ram)
Ram: 6gb DDR2 800mhz

Resolution 1920x1080 @60hz refresh rate


I know my cpu sucks lol, but I am stuck between getting bf3 for pc or xbox. I really want it for pc, but if my performance sucks I just wasted $40 on the game

Thanks for reading this :)

  1. your processor is about the same as the intel's E5200, so i'd probably say no you can't play on max in multiplayer on your computer. The multiplayer is much more demanding as the singleplayer campaign, because it uses much bigger terrain and maps.
  2. I know from experience the 6670 is a pretty bad card. That's just my opinion though.
  3. What do you thing I could ran at then??? And the 6670 is an awesome card, if you buy the right one. The Asus EAH model is the only DDR5 one out and it clocks alot higher. With my current setup I can play Guild Wars 2 at about 34 FPS, the GPU is being bottle necked to 42% by my cpu. So with a cpu upgrade my card if just fine.

  4. You would be looking at low settings if you want good FPS the CPU is the weekest part and the 6670 is still a low end card even the DDR5 version.
  5. For mulriplayer you will certainly need a quad core CPU. I suggest you buy BF3 for pc (it's way better experience) AFTER you buy a quad core CPU, cheaper one that I can suggest is this:

  6. Hi :)

    No... cpu and graphics card need replacing...

    All the best Brett :)
  7. You wont play bf3 on ultra with your GPU, but you will still play it decently with lower details. Your CPU needs replacing, seeing that the game is core-hungry, especially in multiplayer.
  8. i have a core 2 duo e8500, 3 gb of ram and a GT 430. so can i play it on medium settings with good fps?

    Maybe not medium but somewhere between low and medium I'd guess (assuming its 1080p)

    @OP Yeah even if you have the GDDR5 version with higher clocks it will still get you no where near ultra, the 6670 is a fairly low end gaming card. If you want decent fps on a single card on ultra you will need a much more powerful card. Upwards of a 6950 for HIGH.
    EDIT: Not to mention you would definitely also need a CPU upgrade.

    Depends what you mean by lag... What's acceptable fps? 40? 50?
  12. 50
