Its really not worth the money to upgrade to those imo. If you are upgrading you should look at least in the region of the 560ti or 7850 for a decent performance jump.

I've been having a whole lot of stuttering going on. I guess the most money that I can spend right not is on a 6850. esrever a c 91 U Graphics card May 30, 2012 1:12:40 AM I think it might be your cpu. BF3 multiplayer will stutter without a quadcore cpu. ct1615 a c 235 U Graphics card May 30, 2012 1:22:12 AM chayes said:I currently play on a 1600x1050 monitor specs: i3 2100 6gb of ram I currently play BF3 and am having trouble on 34+ player maps with a lot of action.

I guess the most money that I can spend right not is on a 6850. the AMD 6850 is on par with the Nvidia GTX460. i've read that hyper threading on the i3 can cause stutter. turning it off helped in that department. chayes May 30, 2012 1:25:25 AM So.... Would an i5 2400 be a better upgrade choice? I also have an issue with slow loading times. Will an SSD help in that dept as well? esrever a c 91 U Graphics card May 30, 2012 1:30:21 AM an ssd will improve loading time but thats about all. the i5 2400 will give you smoother gameplay but probably will not improve your average fps much an upgrade to gpu will improve average fps but there could still be stutter. chayes May 30, 2012 1:35:55 AM so... a cpu and gpu upgrade is in order... great >.< Can't find your answer ?
