Hi ive just OC my c2d e7400 @3.5 (Bsel mod) but i want to buy a new card... i was thinking about the hd 6850 or gtx 460 but when my clocks was @ stock (2.8 Ghz)... now i think i could handle a faster card without too much bottleneck... so what r ur toughts???? keeping between those cards or improve a lil...

4 gb Ram ddr2

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....

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