Just bought a new Computer, I was wondering if it will be able to handle BF3 and record with FRAPS at good quality.

CPU: AMD A6-3670K 2.70 GHz Quad-Core APU w/ Integrated Radeon HD 6530D (Liquid Cooled)

RAM: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1333MHz Dual Channel Memory

PSU: 500 Watts - Standard Case Power Supply

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7750 1GB


Thanks for the help

Haha a bit late to be asking if you've already bought it :p  But either way, yea, you should be ok. I'd say you could run BF3 at 1080p with medium settings

ok thanks, I was also wondering if I got another of the same GPU and then CrossFired it, would that greatly increase the performance?

Not greatly, probably only by about 1.8x or so. Crossfiring isn't perfect, so not a full double boost. Considering the card isnt amazing to begin with, probably only High settings, or maybe half Ultra half High. I'd suggest just upgrading the card completely, and getting a 7870, and maybe crossfiring that. A 7870 alone should run the game on Ultra..

ok thanks, but like I said, I already bought the Computer.

but if I CrossFired it i'll be able to play at high settings while recording instead of medium while recording, right?

If I CrossFired it would my 500W PSU still be able to handle it all?

Not really, and no, it wouldn't. You will need more than that.
