  1. Yep. it's a decent PC. At the very least, you should be BF3 ready. Have you OCed the CPU or GPU?
  2. no not at all i dont want to im aiming at using it longterm but i am looking to change my mboard if u have any good suggestions for a board plz reply
  3. 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?
  4. yes im fine with formatting do it every 3 months < yes my board is a bit old but works awesome but i am looking at the future so uhm do u think my pc as is wil run bf3 on full ?
  5. 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.
  6. i think i will be able to run it full at 1080p maybe but i really want to buy new board any suggestions
  7. 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.
  8. 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=N82E16813138314
  9. yes i really want a new board looking at this one do u know where i can get one in sa or canada its the asus+p5n+e+sli
  10. Wait what he can't xfire with that either.

    Ugh that board is so old. Try a used one on ebay I guess.
  12. Yeah grody, couldn't find a board that did support CF. Wanted one with 4 ram slots and sataIII, but no such luck.
  13. ok what boards can i look at
  14. I would not upgrade the board. No reason too.
  15. 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?
  16. tnx for the answer but im gonna keep my pc like it is its good enough if ill upgrade ill switch to amd tnx
