  1. For battlefield 3, ditch the dual core cpu, it will be the bottleneck for most new games. You really need a quad core, or core i3 with HT. Im in the same boat, but moving to a new system in a couple weeks. Despite having a 6850 COD black ops is unplayable with a dual core CPU. I expect BF3 to be the same. If you can go higher...3.8ghz is possible on those cpu's....
  2. I dont know how to do a 3.8 ghz bsel mod, and i cant OC with bios... But what card would u buy with those specs?
  3. bump!

    A HD6870 seems about right. Higher than that will be limited more than makes sense to spend money on.
