Dear people,

I was wondering if BF3 will perform on these hardware specifications:

Asrock Z77 xtreme 4
intel i5-3570K
corsair vengeance 2x4GB dualchannel @ 1600mhz cl 24
GTX550TI 1.5GB
HD WD320gb @ 7200RPM
Zalmann 600Watt voeding

Plan is to buy a new GFX card within 3 months, budget is 200 euro's
Feel free to give suggestions and feedback, thanks in advance!

Best regards,

I'd not get HDD smaller than 1TB, it costs like 50% more and provides triple capacity.
You can get a nice a Radeon 7870 for €200 which will make your rig crunch BF3 with ease.

^^Agreed. The GTX 550 Ti is a crap card if you're planning on purchasing it. I would also recommend a 7870 or a 7850 if the 7870 is not in your budget.

Thank you both lads, for the incredible quick reply in my need for advice :-)

I have this GTX550TI in my old system, taking it into the new one, untill I have the budget upgrading the GFX card (As I just became father ^^)
What do you guys think about the build? mobo/ram/cpu.

Just to be super clear, The GTX550TI I already hve it from my old system, including the HDD and PSU

Congrats to you then, sir.
Rest of the components look solid.

Thank you Soda-88,

Good to hear that the rest of the components look solid, do you think I can cut the costs a little bit more by buying a Mini-Atx board, other ram with the same specs but for a lower price, so I can use the money I save on those parts in a new GFX card?

Best regards.
