Yep. it's a decent PC. At the very least, you should be BF3 ready. Have you OCed the CPU or GPU?

I see. Well, here's the thing. OCing can give you a BIG boost in performance, with no danger to your parts if done correctly.

As for the board, i agree it's very barebones. However, when you make a mobo switch you have to reinstall the OS. So, that would mean a total makeover of your PC. You ok with doing that?

Depends on res. Not maxed out at 1080p, not by a long shot. I think you should be able to run all settings high at 1080p though.

i think i will be able to run it full at 1080p maybe but i really want to buy new board any suggestions

Do you want a new board so you can xfire? If that's the only reason I don't think it's worth it.

If you want a full upgrade to sandybridge, then I suppose you could get a GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 and a 2500k.

Tbh, if you can play all your games at the resolution you want right now, I don't see the need to upgrade. Unless of course you are sitting on a pile of cash and are really bored.

Well rumor has it the BF3 demo's were run off a single GTX 580, and they said it wasn't even maxed out. Here's a little comparison of the two: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/294?vs=305 You are pretty far from a 580, bro. Adding a 5850 or 5870 in CF might let you max it. Unfortunately, that's not an option for you. I guess this board gets my vote, since it has Sata II. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Yeah grody, couldn't find a board that did support CF. Wanted one with 4 ram slots and sataIII, but no such luck.

I would not upgrade the board. No reason too.
July 13, 2011 6:22:26 PM

If you upgrade your mobo you would need to get a new cpu, since the only reasonable type of mobo to buy now is an 1155. You're looking at a $300-400 upgrade cost, and that's not including the possibility of another video card, or the psu upgrade you would need since your psu only has enough 6-pins for one 5870.

Do you understand where this is going?
