Hey guys I have just built a new system (well kind of) I got a new i5 3570k @ 4.5Ghz with 16gb G.Skill ripjaws ram and a z77-D3H gigabyte motherboard

I was just wondering why I am getting kind of low fps in game around 60-80 in bf3 with everything on ultra but no AA or AF

In Natural Selection 2 I get around 40-60 on a 24 player server

I have done a 3dmark 11 I’m not sure if that’s what most people use these days

Just some input would be nice also what gfx card would match the system better

Thanks guys!

7970 would match better. But wait till Next-Gen.

60-80 isn't low at all? How much you get with full AA?
40-60 is also good.

Well what is your resolution ?

Your budget ? And why are you upgrading ?

It dose drop below 60 at times in the big open maps when lots is going on, with full AA and AF unplayable around 35ish fps...

I upgraded because my old q9650 was quite old and looking to get my system up to date, I don’t want to spend mass amounts of cash on it but I do want a good setup that’s why I am now looking at changing the GFX card but will wait till next gen if that’s the best way

Those are perfectly fine results. Theres no real reason to upgrade.
