Your computer really isn't that great. TF2 on max settings? Big woop....

Also why did you say what your psu was? Might as tell us what the case is while you're at it.

You should be able to play the game pretty well but not max it out at 1080p with 60fps.

Check what's using up the CPU. It shouldn't be at 100%.

okay its just bad company 2 i opened task manager and look at it and bad company 2 uses from 79-94 of the processor and the % used does drop below 85 in each core is it fine to play when one of the cores hit 91?

Check CPU temperatures. Use HWMonitor. Download it from http://cpuid.com.

130f is what the cores go up to when playing

Hi :) 

You NEED a better graphics card....yours is low end...

All the best Brett :)

Bad Company 2 is a very CPU demanding game. It is the only game that actually causes a CPU bottleneck on my system with an i5 760 paired with an overclocked Radeon HD 7870. A new GPU may not benefit you too much without overclocking your Phenom II. Changing from my old 6870 to my new 7870, I saw no overall performance increase in the game with my system. When things get really busy on screen my framerate will still drop into the 40s or high 30s because of the CPU bottleneck.

@Brett What are you on about? That's not low end. The 6450 is low-end.

@OP TF2 only uses one core, AFAIK.

I think Brett considers any GPU that sells for under $400 US to be low end. Top single GPUs are midrange for him, and high end is exclusively populated by dual GPU cards and multi-GPU setups. He does run a computer store, as he has repeatedly stated, so it's in his interests to write off everything except the top of the line stuff as low end crap.

Hi :) 

Let me ask you this....

In my shops I sell all graphics cards....

I sell his for £110

I sell some at £500

I sell some at £1000

Which would YOU say is low end ?

I am not saying its a bad card, but its definitely low end....

All the best Brett :)

At this point looking solely at pricing isn't necessarily the best way to determine what is low end as far as GPUs go. Since games have to be designed to run on the XBox 360 in order to generate enough sales to please the publishers, we have had system requirements effectively frozen in time for the past few years. A $150 card like the 6850 is not really low end when compared to the requirements of the vast majority of titles out there. Even on the really demanding games, the 6850 will still run the game okay as long as you aren't trying to run triple monitors or something like that.

Yes there are cards three to six times more expensive, but in the majority of cases the extra performance either won't be relevant, or the performance gains will not scale well compared to the amount of extra money you had to spend. A $500 card is not going to be 3.3 times faster than a $150 card for example.

Until there are actually a decent amount of games that can bring these $500 to $1000 video cards to their knees, it is really hard to call any card sold for $150 to $200 as low end. To really get into the low end you would be looking at cards sold for $100 or lower.

I think I saw a similar argument a few weeks ago, :p . Honestly, I think you are sort of right Brett, but people don't like you saying there valuables are low end. I'd recommend saying more neutral things.

Well, that advice wasn't really good. His graphics card isn't even maxing out in usage, and his CPU is. Upgrading the graphics card would only increase the bottleneck and not the performance.

@OP: I'd suggest looking at overclocking your CPU.

Hi :) 

All the best Stupido :) 
[/joke]

money as much as they are important,for this discussion they are irrelevant...

Yes, bad company 2 is very very CPU intensive... I have similar performance class CPU + overclock (see 'member configuration') and yet my CPU goes to 95-98% utilization during game play...

IMHO this high CPU utilization is due to the destructible environment (CPU intensive math) of the game engine...

in short, nothing is wrong with your computer - it is nice mid-range gaming machine... :) 

All the best Stupido :-P
