Hey everyone, I'm looking to upgrade my system to handle BF3. At the moment my system consists of:
OS: Win7 64-bit
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 970
RAM: 4GB Kingston HyperX DDR2
Motherboard: ASUS M4A785-M
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4800
With this my FPS hovers around 30-35, dropping below that as time goes on. Would I mainly be aiming for a new GPU/Motherboard?
a decent 650W PSU will be fine for virtually any single gpu configuration unless you plan to overclock to the extreme. i am using a lovely corsair 620w psu and have even run dual 275's on it with no issues at all.
The 6950 (even if not flashed to a 6970) should be great at 1080p, im running a stock 6950 at 2650 and can run high graphics in 64 player maps on a i5 750 with semi decent fps (~30). I would estimate your fps would be around 60 at high with that setup.
