Do I need to upgrade?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

I have an Intel E8400 OCed at 4Ghz, a Radeon Sapphire 5770 GPU with 8Gb DDR2 of RAM and I've downloaded BF3 and noticed that my CPU is running full load with max settings. Is it good if it's running at maximum capacity or I would need to upgrade my PC?

That was a beta and the code is months old, wait for the final release and see if they improve the code.

Were you okay with the fps you were getting? If you found it too choppy, I'd consider upgrading. If you were fine with your fps, there's no real reason to upgrade.
