I got an E7300 Core 2 duo @2.66Ghz which I know it's totally crap, and an Ati Radeon 6770 1gb. My screen is actually not huge it's 1280x1024, also my HDD has a 5.9 rating on win7 and 4gb ddr2, I know it's so ugly.
So here's a MSI afterburner test with bf3

My gpu should do more right? and if I got an i3 2100 will it be enough for my 6770 and to run bf3 at high? Thanks :)

The i3-2100 will act more like a 4-core, so your frame rate will be somewhat higher.

The CPU is a better upgrade for you.

what is the CPU usage?

but yes you will get better game play with an i3. my 550ti @ 99% load has my i3-2120 between 40%-55% load depending on the game @ 1920x1080 on high/ultra settings.

so it appears your CPU is 95-100% with your GPU floating around 65%.

what does that tell you? :) 

(pssst get the i3)
