You pretty much need to upgrade everything. Especially the video card.

Your CPU is severely underpowered for BF3, your GPU isn't much better. Both are below the minimum requirements, I'm surprised it runs at all.

You will need a stronger CPU/GPU and probably some more ram if the rest of your system is a good indicator.

First of all, your GPU is very outdated for this game. Your CPU is also. Have you considered updating?

Did you try 800x600?

Typically videos are misleading - people posting them often post them from best-case-scenario runs of the game, and typically a video looks smoother than if you were actually playing the game (not watching someone else play it).

And there's plenty you can do, it just all involves spending your $$$ :sol: 


I tried all the resolutions, i told you

640x480 = 17 fps what the **** it looked like crap anyways i thought i was gonna get like 40 fps on that low of a resoluton, but NO.

~Sigh~

I do not know why you even bother to game at such low resolutions and details any modern game would look like from 1990's...just get xbox or ps3

No, Just get someting like a Radeon hd 6770 or the new 7770 for you're desktop and Overclock your CPU and you should be fine.

It will run better on your laptop but you still won't see much gain.

Are you playing the singleplayer or multiplayer? Multiplayer taxs about 30% of performance.

Maybe it would run better but it would still be UNPLAYABLE in my opinion. I tried to run BF3 on Intel HD Graphics 3000 and even at 640x480 with everything on low campaign i was barely getting 20FPS. So imagine on a big 64 player map like Gulf of Oman. And also, at this resolution with these details the game looks like a NES game.

I was merely answering the OP's question.As everyone else has already stated their isn't much point in playing one of the worlds most appealing games on the lowest possible settings....
