G630 enough for BF3 MP? Tags: CPUs Battlefield Last response: June 25, 2012 7:03 PM in CPUs Share lorgoyf June 24, 2012 6:08:43 PM Since the G630 always fared so well in single-player, I wanted to create a build around it and a Radeon 6950. However, I just read that MP is extremely CPU reliant and therefore the G630 would severely bottleneck my GPU. Is this true? If so, what would be my best bet in the below 100 euro range: Phenom II 965 or FX 4100? More about : g630 bf3 FinneousPJ a b à CPUs June 25, 2012 3:51:39 PM The Phenom II. BF3 multiplayer really taxes CPU resources. lorgoyf June 25, 2012 3:54:38 PM Quote:http://i1130.photobucket.com/albums/m529/malmental/OC_Skyrim.png http://i1130.photobucket.com/albums/m529/malmental/DiRT3.png http://i1130.photobucket.com/albums/m529/malmental/Metro2033.png http://i1130.photobucket.com/albums/m529/malmental/Battlefield3.png http://i1130.photobucket.com/albums/m529/malmental/Averages.png These are single player benchmarks = useless.
