Pentium G630 good enough?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
CPU: Intel Pentium G630
GPU: Asus Gtx 560 Ti (bought it for $100 from friend, only 5 months old)
Motherboard: Biostar H61MGC

I was wondering if I am able to play Battlefield 3 on med to high settings with this set up. I would also like to max out games like Skyrim. I'm mostly worried about the CPU, my budget is really small so there's no way i can spend more for a better CPU.

Pentium G630 is an OK gaming CPU, Battlefield 3 benefits from more cores but I think you'll be OK. You'll definitely be able to play Skyrim.

You'll be fine with the 530 running BF3 in High

Might get the occasional lag here and there in multiplayer though.

Skyrim will be fine

Honestly I would be content if battlefield 3 ran on low settings with this set up. The resolution I play at is 1280x720. Also I don't care about battlefield 3 single player, mainly multiplayer.

Well then you'll be fine for certain.
