HI GUYS IM OPENING THIS TOPIC TO ASK IF THIS GPU is good .
this are myspecs
Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50GHz

CPU SPEED :2.5 GHz

Windows Vista (Service Pack 1)

i play on 1024x768 on med or low settings and i want to know if i can get 50-60 fps on battleifled 3 thx hope in a quick support :D

Yeah, I say you'd be good at those settings. If you stick with that resolution. However, I can see it running at low-med at a higher res (probably up to 1680x1050).

This benchmark here shows the 450 will run BF3 at high on 1680x1050 at 30FPS. You'll be okay (this is a SP mission, but at low-med and a low res, you'll be more than okay, and can even get a bigger monitor!) I'm going to say yes to 50FPS+ on your res at low/med.

Also, you do not need to add anything to get the game to run as you suggested. However, run Windows updates and get to at least SP2.

How much RAM do you have by the way? You might need to increase that, though, if it's below 2gb.

Too low specs for BF3? Not sure what you meant by that followed by a Yes.

According to the minimum requirements, he is okay to play this game the way he is asking.

I was confused because the first part of your "sentence" was "that is too low specs for bf3," which means the specs are too low for BF3. See the confusion? You said two different things in the same sentence.

indeed that is low i mention this because that game requires quad-core set but he needs a low or med then yes he would be fine on these specs.

he still needs to upgrade his OS because without SP2 for Vista it won't even install..


Ah, I thought you meant upgrade to Windows 7 :p 

Yes please install all Windows updates :o !!

with that processor youd probably get less than 20 avg on bf3. you should get a quad core

It should be good for that resolution on medium. You're better off with a Radeon 5770/6770 though. As for your CPU I recommend you overclock it. Getting it up to around 3.2 Ghz or more should certainly smooth things out. The E5200 is a pretty good little overclocker after all.
January 17, 2012 7:20:43 PM

yea? but i don't know how to overclock and maybe there ins't like sorry i dont know the verb xD the CPU GOT DAMAGED if overclock??
January 17, 2012 7:21:24 PM

You can read an overclocking guide to get started. A mild overclock on the CPU is relatively safe so long as you do it right. I would recommend getting a good aftermarket cooler before overclocking though. The more you push the CPU, the greater the risk, but getting it to 3.2 is rather doable.

guys sorry im completely noob with this kind of things the guide is set on 3.2 ghz?? and how i enter in CMOS UTILITY??
January 17, 2012 8:31:47 PM

    If your motherboard has support for it, try for a very good Core 2 Duo or a Core 2 Quad.
