What is problem with battlefield 3?


Apr 1, 2012
I have core 2 duo e7500 @3.1Ghz
nvidia gt9400 gpu clock- 800Mhz
Memory clock-440 Mhz
Shader clock- 1.8Ghz

Ram-3GB DDR2
Board-Asrock g41C-VS

i playing BF @ all low setting expect Textures its on high still game is very slow
when i check cpu usage i see that core is @100% temp 96C and core 2 34% temp 84C
well offcourse gpu usage is 100% gpu memory usage 650MB

please give a advice to play it on a playable speed
you cant because your gpu is below recomended spec by a good margin. you need a minimum 88gt/98gt/4850 to get playable frame rates even on low...

Graphics Card (AMD): DirectX 10.1 compatible with 512 MB RAM (ATI RADEON 3000, 4000, 5000 OR 6000 series, with ATI RADEON 3870 or higher performance)
Graphics Card (NVIDIA): DirectX 10.0 compatible with 512 MB RAM (NVIDIA GEFORCE 8, 9, 200, 300, 400 OR 500 series with NVIDIA GEFORCE 8800 GT or higher performance)
yes the gforce 9 series is listed but they mean it must be a gforce *800 where the star represents the series like 8800 or 9800 every card after that must be a *50 or above to play so gts 250 450 or 550 yours being a *400 is just to low...

same goes for ati it must be a 3870 or a 4850 1s you get over a 3870 the requirement drops to *850 so 5850 6750 7750 and so on... the higher the last 2 numbers the better regardless of what series... **20 **30 3750 and under are just to weak.

like i say get a minimum of a 98gt and you will be able to play at least at low settings and get a playable 30 fps minimum.
