BF 3 is a very CPU demanding game just as much as it is GPU demanding and it's fully optimized for 4 or more cores.A dual core is the bare minimum for the game to run.It seriously won't even start on a single core.Every benchmark I've seen has all of the dual cores completely maxed out.With such a low resolution it will require the CPU to do even more work.You can definity play the game but you won't max it out.

Is that your monitors native resolution?

yes that is my monitors native res :(  so with a lower res my cpu does more work? i can push this cpu to 4ghz stable if that will help any. thanks for the quick feedback

true, but with my power supply (500 watt) it would need to be upgraded. so ill wait a little more till a new line of cpus come out before upgrading
