  1. Best answer
    your bottleneck is ur cpu. battlefield3 is a cpu intensive game and a quadcore would help ur fps.
  2. Your CPU is the problem, it's causing a bottleneck. the recommended CPU is a quadcore.
  3. yep :)
  4. Is there any web site i can use to see what cpu is compatible with my mobo?
  5. whats ur pc specs?
  6. Mobo is EMCP73VT-PM
  7. I had a core2 quad 2.06ghz with an HD5770 & 2gb of ddr2 ram and I got very playable frames in bf3 - and at fairly decent settings! So it you may be able to get lucky and get a 2nd hand lga775 core2 quad on eBay or something. And that should keep you going until your next upgrade.
  8. The fastest quad you can put in there may indeed help. Overclocking it might help a little more. I came from a set almost exactly like yours and it was unplayable as well.
  9. How do i know what is compatible with my mobo? its MCP73VT-PM
  10. Did you look for a cpu compatability chart at the manufacturers website
  11. Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
    Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
    Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
    Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
    Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
    Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
    Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
    Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
    Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
    Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
    Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)


    Should all work just fine with the mobo. I'm not a hardware guy so I'll leave it up to another to say which is the best option.

    Cannot find one since i'm not on warranty.
  13. Your best bet though IMO is going to be to replace the mobo itself and get an i5 or i7.

    I JUST posted a list of compatible CPUs above. Those are the only ones that will work with a 775 socket motherboard.
  15. my friend has core 2 due 2.3 and gtx 650 and he gets 35 frames on 1400x900 so i think theres something wrong with ur pc
  16. i'm trying not to spend a lot of money :/ if you can find a well mobo and cpu for under $100 then sure ill do the swap oh and + a new case
  17. yeesh...4gb of ram??? theres your problem
  18. A decent mobo will run you at least $150. And any modern CPU that's worth it's weight in gold (they only weigh a few grams so this is an adequate analogy) are going to be at least a couple hundred as well.

    You've been given your answer, and I advise you to save up some money and get a nice LGA socket 1366 or 2011 mobo and at least an Intel i5.

    And yes, I'd recommend upgrading to at least 8gb of RAM as well if you decide to update your mobo.
