damn 2gb of video memory? CRAPPPPP should have spent a lil more. i guess i'll stick to 3.4

can someone explain vdroop, mch and vtt?

Same. The 1gb isn't enough, and I think the card needs a bit more grunt.

At that resolution, I can't see 1GB being the big limiting factor....

2GB for "Ultra" textures @ 1080p is a rumor. I push my 560Ti 448 @ 850/4400 and can run everything maxed, except AF, which has to be 2x .

Isn't BF3 GPU-limited? Guess not...

Not true, i can get 45fps+ playing everything on High with Ultra Textures and Deferred AA, HBAO at 1080p with an overclocked 5850 1Gb and i7 920.

The op needs a new cpu, even overclocking to 4.0 is not going to help you with BF3.

The above poster you have a decent intel cpu overclocked so gives you some extra room with fps to play with on your video settings.

With a 5850 you can run textures at utlra, shadows high, effects medium, mesh medium (don't need high mesh), all AA off, combine that with a decent CPU phenom x4, anything past socket 775 and i3, i5, i7s.

An OC'ed Q6600 is not what is wrong, well, not entirely.

lol. Touche. Any reason to upgrade is a good real biggrin.gif

I'd be more apt to upgrade the GPU than the CPU in that case though.

Yup, if he has no other choice

That would be the most ideal solution and cheaper. Possibly heh

If OP wanted to he could get a i3 and cheap motherboard combo with ram. An i3 with ATI 5850 holds BF3 in 64 player with 40min fps, which is pretty damn amazing for such a budget system right there. HT holds up well on these I3's.
