**UPDATED** I need help finding a processor and video card for BC2/BF3

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I am looking for a cheap quadcore processor and Geforce video card that can run BC2/BF3 smoothly on high settings. I am working on a budget around $200-$250, I would hate to push it past that, I really dont even have that money right there saved up. Thank you for taking your time to read all this. Looking forword to your replys to see what I should buy.

thats tough...
athelon II x4 and a 460/6850/6870...
BF3 is unknown performance wise, also depends on resolution.
If your resolution is 1024x768 then any of the above is great, also a gts450/gtx550.

Or the Phenom II X4 840, which is probably the price/performance quad at the moment.

i checked out the CPU, i like it, seems like a good price hopefully its better then what i have now, but for the gtx 460 should i get the 768MB, 1GB, or 2GB, i would like to stay cheap and run it on high settings for BC2, and BF3.

Thought ill chip in, i have a X4 940 which ive overclocked (the overclock from 3.0 - 3.6, this gavee me about 6fps extra) and a 1gb radeon 6870, on average i get 60fps, max fps is about 95 and min is around 30. Use this as sort of a benchmark i guess

Does BC2 run smooth for you, and is GTX 460 better then your video card?
also what settings do you run it on.

Bro don't get GTX 460.

It's low perform on BF2, imagine BF3.

get a 6870 or a 470 at least.
