Battlefield 3 Experience with GTS 240

Hey guys, I just want to share something with u guys.

So I have got BF3 on MEDIUM (and HIGH 'texture setting) and I'm enjoying the multi-player on around 30-50fps (according to fraps) but barely very low fps SHOCKING... I KNOW RIGHT

Here's my spec's:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Intel Core i7 860 2.80GHz
6 GB Memory
GTS 240 Overclocked

I know some people will RAGE and say u wont even be able to RUN on low settings, but I'm telling the truth guys!

  1. What resolution?
  2. Just makes me think you are playing at lower resolution than 1680 x 1050! (more CPU bound) http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graphics-performance,3063-4.html
  3. resolution: 1024x768

    Thats why you get reasonable fps......................LOL If you play at 1080p, im sure your fps will drop INSANELY! :ange:

    I played All ultra settings with resolution 1024x768.

    I played all ultra settings 9x6 with a potato.
  12. All jokes aside here are my specs
    Intel core i7 870 oced to 4ghz
    6GB DDR3 RAM 1600MHZ
    Geforce GTX 275 1792MB Single

    With these specs playing at ultra settings minus MSAA and getting a rocksolid 30+ fps at 1680X1050.The lowest fps I get is only in one map and thats caspian border but even there the bare minimum I get is 25 fps.The game is less demanding than crysis 2 IMO.

    @OP You do realize that your card is being bottlenecked,do you?At that resolution my gtx 275 gets a constant 70+fps at ultra settings WITH MSAA :lol: That card isnt that much weaker than mine.Buy a decent monitor.You will actually see your fps increase

    Play it at 1080P, with ultra details and settings, watch your frame rate drop

    You need a new monitor.

    I have installed MSI afterburner and i keep on checking frame rate while playing, that is 40-60 fps with resolution 1024x768 & ultra settings in bf3 and max setting in Nvidia control panel.

    Lol......

    I am not kidding, I have installed MSI afterburner and i keep on checking frame rate while playing, that is 40-60 fps (Max 90fps) with resolution 1024x768 & ultra settings in bf3 and max setting in Nvidia control panel.
  17. I have a notebook with a 540gt (witch is barely superior than a 240gt and close to a desktop 430gt ) and i can only run at low (medium texture and meshes) with 1366x768 resolution (average 30~40fps).
  18. This thread hurts my head. Who even plays at that low of a rez anymore? Your also only playing in DX10 max.. which is WAY less demanding then DX11 since that card cannot even support DX11. But regardless, an XBOX console probably looks better visually then a 240 @ that low of a rez.. Just sayin.

    The GT 430 is worse than the GT 240........

    Thats because you are playing at such a low resolution 1024x768, most of us are playing at 1920x1080. If you played it at 1080P (1920x1080) your fps would be around 10-15fps.
  21. Actually, the Majority of gamers use the resolution of 1280x720-1600x1050.

  23. Also, I play at 1280x1024 and my system is hardly lacking...
