Extent of Gaming

CPU: AMD Phenom II 555 BE @ 3.2 ( I think OC is about 3.7)
RAM: 4 GB
GPU: XFX Radeon HD 6670 1GB DDR3
PSU: 450 Watts

Pretty sure I can run Skyrim just fine, but mostly I'm wondering how Battlefield 3 will run? Projected FPS and at what level of detail? If the card is kind of weak, what would be a better choice, budget being $150 at most?

Thanks in advance.

Also would be awesome if someone had a performance chart comparison of graphics cards for Battlefield 3.

  1. Doing a quick scower of the EA forums (search "HD 6670 BF3") you can probably expect Medium settings and 30+ FPS. Not much chance of running High settings and having much fun... If you were to upgrade the GPU to a HD 6870 or similar, your would have a huge increase in performance right up until the CPU is bottlenecked. It would need an upgrade to a quad core (overclocked of course) to get into some higher settings.

    From what this is saying, you won't even reach Ultra with the 6870...You'll be able to play it on High with a 6870 with around ~40FPS. With the 6670, probably medium at 30-40FPS...that's my guess
