LongpastPNR, you're trolling. My cousin recently purchased a rig for 460 euros, and it had GTX 550 Ti in it. He plays BF3 on high @ 1680x1050 with around 45-55 fps. I saw it with my own eyes. Don't confuse people if you have no idea what you're talking about!
Given the original post, he already has the 550 and wants to know if he is wasting his money buying BF3 if the card cant handle it. The answer is yes, the card will work just fine at that res. When you upgrade the monitor much, if it all, then you may want to upgrade.
Thank you guys for the prompt replies, yes I realize it's low graphic settings, and a midrange card, just wondered if I could play it. My processor's an intel core i5 2500k for those that asked. Again, thanks for all the input.
