My son reports problems with the newest games: B'field 3, et al. Dropped frames, poor response time. He has an AMD system: AsRock N-68 mainboard, 4GB RAM, AMD Phenom II X2 3.0 Ghz CPU. He has a pretty good graphics card: nVidia GTX 560.

Short of buying a new barebones system, is there any way what he has can be upgraded? The games specs list a "quad core" CPU as being ideal. Can one be purchased for his current setup? Will it be problematic to install?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

John

There are three things that I would recommend that you upgrade in this situation. First priority: Mother board, mainly because that will allow you to upgrade the other 2. #2: CPU. Get something newer, or maybe switch to intel. and #3: RAM. The memory is actually very important with games such as Battlefield. What is your budget? Because with out a budget range, I'm useless to you.. :p
