    YEs all the games will work upto 1080P resolutions. Don't expect to crank up any details. You will likely be playing with medium settings at best on BF3 and Crysis...for COD mw3 i think you can max out most of the details since that game has graphics from 2006...
  2. the only limiting thing there is the graphics card. a 6770 will get you playable at medium settings. if you can afford to get better you can check out the best graphics card for the money article toms makes.

  3. Yes, they will all run. You should also be able to run at medium or higher graphics detail levels without too much concern.

    BTW, what resolution are you gaming at?
  4. Those specs look fine, but I'd try to find demos of the games and see how they run. While technically illegal, I've torrented some games for the sole purpose of seeing if they'd run on my computer, then uninstall or buy them.
  5. Just a question, you DID throw a bigger PSU in there alongside the more powerful graphics card right?

    I'm guessing that it's a factory prebuilt rig that you changed a couple parts of though.

    Either way, what Power supply do you have in there?
  6. I have a 5770(which is a 6770) and I run BF3 on High getting 40+ FPS on 1080p... no problems.. you should be fine with BF3 on High... Crysis 2 you may get medium at best... it is a tough one.

    What you need to look into is if your motherboard supports Hybrid Crossfire.. where your graphics card can crossfire with your onboard GPU of the motherboard... if your mobo supports it, you should have no problem running games.... good luck.

    The earlier recommendation to Crossfire your GPU would scale nicely at this resolution.

    Iam not able to crossfire due my Motherboards limitations with only one PCIE... 8( next year i will be moving to a super duper higher motherboard, i will upgrade i5 to i7 and then crossfire.

    by the moment i think i will be able to play battlefield 3 without probs, iam playing crysis 2 at HARDCORE wich i think is the highest quality without problems so i think BF3 will run ok
