i am sorry, Dark. Were you asking me? You need to Quote the post you're responding to.

anyway, i don't know how to park but i really did not need to. as long as i can play the game smoothly using quad, then i leave it at that. i did play with the extra cores and, of course, got higher minimums. see here . .

Quad, 7970 stock, 1080 Ultra with 4MSAA, BF3 MP



it's playable.

here is with extra cores unlocked same settings . . .

When I had an AMD 965 with a HD 7970 and played Battlefield 3 maxed on Caspian border the fps would drops down into the 40's. After I upgraded to a 3570k It stayed above 60 FPS at all times, GPU and CPU's were both overclocked.
