Battlefield 3

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone!
I'm new here smile.gif

I've a little (read big) problem... I recently bought Battlefield 3.
Installed it, etc etc works just fine... BUT, even at the lowest setting (640x480p) and everything on low I don't even get 30fps. Mostly about 15-25.

No idea why, I've never had that problem before...
My system:

Acer Aspire 8930G (Laptop)
Intel Core 2 duo T6400 (2.0Ghz, 800Mhz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache)
2303MB Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT Turbocache
4GB DDR3
(320GB HDD)

So, I was wondering what the problem could be... Is it just my system that isn't suffciently good or else?

I run the game with Razer Game Booser, and with no other programs opened.
I've overclocked my GPU with MSI afterburner to Core Clock: 650 Mhz and Memory Clock: 520 Mhz.

When I check 'systemrequirementslab' it says that my laptop isn't good enought to play, but at Modern Warfare it says too that my laptop is too bad, but it runs at 60fps at 1280x720p...
Also, Just Cause 2, says that i'm under the minimum, but even at high it runs very smoothly!

So, what could the problem be? :0

Please help me tongue.gif I've searched everywhere, updated drivers etc... nothing helps significantly :|


P.S. Sorry for my bad English wink.gif

According to research, your rig is too under-powered. People with that card simply cannot run the game even on the lowest settings. Also, your processor is far too weak. You're going to need an upgrade to run that beast. smile.gif

Thats's a problem frown.gif
Is it possible to upgrade my processor & GPU of my laptop for less than 250 dollar? redface.gif Can I get a good processor and gpu for that price?
Or is it not even possible to change those things in my laptop?

Thanks for the answer!

Yeah pretty much your system is way to weak and upgrading probably wont do much.

Yeah.. You won't be able to, you may be able to get a better processor but it's hardly worth it especially for the cost + worse battery life. You'd be better off selling the laptop and spending $1000+ on a decent gaming laptop, or keeping it and saving up $250+ more for a decent gaming rig. (Desktop)

I wouldn't run any games on a non-gaming laptop. You run the chance of it overheating and shutting itself down. My brother had that happen with this laptop. Playing NBA 13, his laptop got over 100 degrees and shut itself off. So be careful.

True story. But, This laptop is good enough for daily use, and it's stupid to spend another 700-800 dollar for a good dekstop just to be able to play BF3 ... That's tha problem... And I've just enough money to buy an iPhone 5 , so I will have to work way too long to be able to spend another 1000 dollar :O

Bwa... i dunno, but even after having my gpu overclocked, it doesn't exceed 70 degrees while gaming for hours smile.gif
Alright while stress testing I got a maximum of 97 degrees and then i stopped it, because it was still increasing and I wouldn't my laptop to burn down rolleyes.gif

What Matt said...if you want to be playing games like BF3 ditch the laptop and get yourself a nice gaming rig. You won't regret it.

Yup Bf3 is a Cpu and graphic intense game and that laptop has neither a good cpu or video card. Even at low setting I'm surprised your even getting 30fps.
