Solved Running bf3 on a T7500 Tags: Prebuilt Battlefield Desktops Dell Systems Last response: September 17, 2012 4:29 AM in Systems Share Combat Wombat September 17, 2012 3:15:15 AM Hi all, I have a T7500 Dell desktop, I was wondering if it would punch out BF on mid-range settings, Specs are: Xeon 5570 2.93 Ghz CPU 4GB DDR3 1333mhz ecc Ram Nvidia Quadro FX1800 Dell 1100W PSU 500GB 7.2k RPM hdd Opinions to get it to that standard? Cheers, More about : running bf3 t7500 manofchalk September 17, 2012 4:09:11 AM I doubt it. 3yr old server core. Not much RAM, though admittedly games rarely use more than 4GB. Thats a video-editing card, not known for its gaming performance. You have decent hardware, just not suited for gaming performance. If you want to game on that, I would double the RAM and get a graphics card like a HD7850. Combat Wombat September 17, 2012 4:12:21 AM Yeah ok, It's more the CPU im worried about... Because BF3 is heavily reliant on the CPU, Do you think it would cope..?

Ram isn't an issue, got a old c2d and 4gb ddr2 running it on medium fine. Best solution manofchalk September 17, 2012 4:18:18 AM Share The Xeon 5570 is roughly equal to an i7 950 in terms of gaming, which is still more than sufficient. I dont think the CPU will become a bottleneck. The GPU will be the bigger decider when it comes to gaming performance. Combat Wombat September 17, 2012 4:19:01 AM cool. New GPU it is then. I think a 7850 will do the trick. Combat Wombat September 17, 2012 4:29:09 AM Best answer selected by combat wombat. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
