  1. Not BF3 with that GPU. I use this in my newest build that was AMD.
    FX-4100
    ASUS M5A97
    GTX 560 SE
    Crucial Ballistix 8GB 1333MHz
    CoolMax CU-700B(don't buy this brand, it was my mistake). Can you give me the total of that build so I can work with that GPU?

    the total price is $426 without the gpu and im on a pretty tight budget. what is a decent gpu under $100 that you know of?
  3. No - it's definitely not a good setup. That GPU will barely run the game at 10 FPS.

    Try something like this:
