Bf3 is almost ENTIRELY a GPU offloaded game, CPU will make a difference of 5-fps, I'd you're lucky.

So for Bf3 it wouldn't, but for more CPU intensive games, like Total War, etc. It might.

Also I hope you realize 1280x720 looks disgusting on anything bigger than 14 inches.

Yeah, I know it looks terrible. I have a 19 inch monitor. resolution is 1920x1080.

I've been told that if i bother with 1920x1080 on battlefield 3 I'll get not so great performance.

Sorry but i can't agree you. BF3 is one of the rare games that take advantage of multicore CPUs, there will be much more difference than 5fps between a dual core and a quad/hexa core CPU.

I'm a noob when it comes to computer talk. How much of a difference are we looking at?

Just increase resolution to atleast 1368*768 or 1400*900.because low resolution = more bottleneck.
