Hi, i've got a core 2 duo e6750 @ 3.4GHz, a GTX 560Ti and 4GB (1600MHz) (i'm thinking upgrade it to 8gb, will it worth?), and i would like to buy a new screen to replace my 15'' 1024x768 LG. I want to play bf3 online at least in medium-high settings, what do you think (I want something in a resolution of 1366x768 or a 1400x900).

I don't want to spent much money.

Can you give us a ball park figure of how much money you are expecting to spend?

Around 120€ ~150 dolars

You can get a pretty nice 22-24" 1080p screen for that price range...

And you should just go for a 1080p screen since it's way better for normal work and internet browsing and the gtx 560 ti should be able to do medium on most games at 1080p or 1600x1050 resolution.

And it's not worth it to upgrade your ram since it's outdated DDR2 ram and you won't see much of a performance improvement from 4gb to 8gb. You should just save up for a new computer (or at least a cpu/mobo/ram upgrade)

My RAM is DDR3, the problem isn't the gtx but the c2d, will it lag a lot? i want at least 35fps while playing online

BF3 with many people online will really tax your CPU and i doubt you will be able to keep 35 fps with your current CPU. But that 15 inch monitor really needs to be replaced too. To replace motherboard + CPU + Monitor it will cost between $300-$500 dollars.

ya. it's your cpu on bf3 online lol.

well, I would still get a 1080p monitor... since you can always turn down the resolution in game... and going to a higher resolution isn't going to help the fps....

So basically, get a 1080p monitor, then try out different resolutions (or stay at the same resolution as you're on now) to see which resolutions your machine can achieve 35+ fps online.

The resolution isn't going to be the issue, hes going to have low fps at low resolutions and high resolutions due to the CPU bottleneck.

lag depends on the game and at what resolution and graphics settings you set the game to. Just get a monitor about 20 inches or so and 1080P. that will ensure you have a decent monitor and u can adjust ur game settings accordingly

but he wants a monitor and not a new system. so he might as well as get a 1080p one to upgrade into later on.

I agree get a 1080p monitor now, but don't expect to maintain 35+ fps in multi-player games at any resolution until you upgrade your cpu + motherboard.

I think someone needs to actually read people's posts.


Maybe you need to read people's posts... like where he says he wants to keep 35+ fps in BF3 online.
You are going to attack me for telling him that he will have to also upgrade his cpu to achieve this? Really?

I think everyone reading this post has already realized that his expectations are unrealistic since he wants to increase his resolution and also maintain the same performance. he'll still get 35+ fps in it if he stays at low resolutions... (pretty sure he can hit that at the current resolution on medium in bf3 online)

I bet he an find a old used q6600 for like 40-50 euros and buy cheap 1080p 70 euro monitor.

Ok so because you claim that everyone that read this post realizes that his expectations are unrealistic, you have the right to criticize me for letting him know that and telling him what would need to be upgraded to achieve his said expectations? And your claims that playing at lower resolutions will remove a cpu bottleneck and higher his FPS is just wrong... If his CPU is keeping his FPS to say 25-30 fps if not lower, that won't change even if his res is 1080p (unless at 1080p his GPU becomes the bottleneck) or if its 1024x768 the FPS will still be the same or very close to.

So by getting a 1080p monitor he should be able to play the game with very close to the same FPS as he was getting before just at a higher resolution, but sustaining 35+ fps won't happen with his current CPU.

So as I said before get yourself a 1080p monitor but if you want your fps to to be 35+ you will need to upgrade your cpu/motherboard.

Here are a few monitors in your price range:

so what you're assuming is that his pc can't play at 35+ fps right now.

In bf3 online with a lot of players(and stay above 35 fps at all times)? Yes.

lol... i can get over 35 fps at that resolution with the work laptop w/ i3 @ 2.0ghz and a 650m ti in a 32 player game... there isn't that many 64 player games anyways...

i dont buy yet the game but in the singleplayer in high i get an average of 45 fps, on the most-required cpu missions
