It would make sense that it would be your bottleneck, does your mobo support unlocking another core?

From what benchmarks I've seen of the beta, BF3 is basically unplayable on a dual core processor, the frame rates are just terrible compared to a quad core.

thanks for the information, the framerate barely increased going from a 5670 to a overclocked 470, which is rediculous, also i think i got a cpu where the two locked cores are dead, everytimer i try to unlock em, the computer wont even post and i have to clear the cmos, now deciding whether to get a x4/x6 or wait and save up for bulldozer

would a new motherboard have a better chance, as i spent £30 on it, it was the cheapest i could find
