  5. You may need to overclock your cpu to see more performance out of your 560ti.
    What settings are you playing BF3 at?

    C2D is a huge bottleneck and really anything more than your old 8800gt would end up a side grade due to the C2D. Try to Overclock and you will see an improvement how much who knows but a new CPU is in order for you.
  7. My 560ti worked just fine with an overclocked C2D, when I went SLI is when I needed more juice so I found a cheap QX9650 to replace my C2D.
    Overclock your 2.66 and you will see a difference. If you are'nt sure how to do it , theres a few guides in the overclocking section here at Toms you could look at.
  8. Well, it depends on what kind of a C2D you have.

    An e8xxx would be sufficient, but then again you may have any other model, which in turn may not be so great.

    Overclocking may bring results, but if you want to be sure to have eliminated the bottleneck, you should get a quad core, like a q9400 or better. Or you can have a cheaper quad, but then you'll have to overclock it (q6600, q8400)

    I found two games that absolutely choke on even a more powerful Dual Core and I am sure there is more.
  10. i see.. i have a Zalmann cooler.. ill try and OC my CPU thanks guys, and BTW.. i bought this card specifically for playing BF3
  11. With the overclock your 560ti will perform much better, the 560ti is a good card so give it a go and see how much better for fps will be.

    Cards only as good as the CPU that drives it.
  13. i OCed to 3.2ghz.. its better but i dont think ill be able to play in ultra settings unless i upgrade my sys.. which will cost a fortune, what will be the recommended hardware for around 1000 dollars US.. i dont need a monitor, HDD, CPU cooler, PSU, GFX, DVD drive.. etc.. i just need MB, RAM, and CPU
