Only if he is within the timeframe to return. The selling option is not as good because you are going to get less for it used and a lot less if your honest and tell people it will not unlock

This is true, but come on man, its the middle of summer, pull out your lawn mower and knock on doors!! I am 16 and I dont have a job because of other summer commitments but I mow lawns and mowing once a week for 4 houses pulls a nice 320$ paycheck for gas in my 10MPG truck and money for the girl!

There are ways to make money about your PC if your serious! also shop OCN trade market! Ebay, and Craigslist for maybe a 955, they are cheaper you can easily get 4Ghz

Dude, I don;t live in a suburb, LOL. we have all the Lawn care services do the lawn moving (which is total BS!) - and all the people with private land mow their lawn themselfs and enjoy it. I made this rig from craigslist buying/selling (made a bunch of profit - about 400$. Yeah, my Girl could use some $$ herself, and that we could go Out every once and a while and blow some money.

Nor do I, I drive a ride on lawn mower, and mowing those 4 lawns takes me from 6 A.M. to 10:30 at night, its like a job I started...do what you can man!

And my girl just takes my money outta my wallet...its a one way system **

You don't really have a bottleneck. But if you want to play BC2 maxed out you are going to need a better CPU and GPU, that's pretty much the bottom line. A new GPU would net you larger gains then a new CPU I would be willing to bet though. Despite BC2 using 4 cores fairly well it is still a GPU intensive game.

When I was running my 955 @ 4ghz and an OC'd 6850 I would get around 60fps with BC2 without HBAO 4xAA 8xAF, so the game does require a fairly beefy system. With my 480 I get more like 80fps avg, max AA/AF and HBAO on.

BFBC2 will use upto 4 cores, that is all. Your cpu is bottlenecking.


OP your problem is you have a dual core, the reason it starts out ok is because nothing is going on. Once buildings start to fall, objects start to request clock cycles for physics calculations and your cpu chokes.

You simply do not have enough threads to play with the frostbite destruction engine, which uses havok cpu based physics.

Phenom II x4s are pretty cheap right now, your best bet would be to sell your x2 and spring the extra ~$30 for a quad.
