Well, I've been playing with an AMD Athlon X2 4800+ and a 4870, maxed out at 1280x1024. Your cpu is a lot better than mine so you should definitely be able to play, but the settings you'll be playing at I cannot say anything about because you havent specified a resolution
Hello, my old pc just went down and with all the parts broken too, so i'm making a new cheap pc.
I was wondering if a pc with Intel Quad Q9550 and a XFX HD 5770 would be able to run Bad Company 2 with decent fps? If so, how would the fps look?
Only 2 gigs of ram in the pc.
Dude if I were you, I'd get a Phenom with a 4870 and 4GB of ram because getting a x8xx is better than a x7xx in terms of gamming, if you're not getting a 5870 or a 5850 then save yourself some money and get a 48/49-70. The phenom is better than core2s because of L3 cache and it's way cheaper and its mutiplier is 19x instead of the 9x you get on core2's so you can fine tune a decent overclock and turn your antistropic filtering all the way up. You can run the game smooth with this config. This route saves you money and instead of getting 2Gb you can get 4Gb and invest in a DDR3 board instead of a DDR2.
