Hello,
I am interested in Battlefield 3. My computer exceeds in every area except for the video ram. I found out about shared system memory and just want to know if BF3 would pull Ram out of my computer to use as video ram?

Thanks!

Hi :)

An APU = a cpu WITH graphics built into the cpu chip....

Does cpu wotk reasonably and graphics are crap generally... which is why for a GAMER you NEED a separate graphics card...they range from £30 to over £1000...

The more you pay for a graphics card the better you get, most gamers would pay at least £200...

All the best Brett :)

Hi :)

Umm you sort of forgot to mention its a laptop ..lol

As far as BF3 is concerned...maybe on low...as that's not a graphics card at all...

All the best Brett :)

sorry but I honestly don't know what you mean. I haven't done anything (hardware-wise) with my computer since I got it.
