A video card's performance goes much deeper than just the amount of VRAM it has.

And in the case of your Radeon HD 4550 (a low end card), it makes perfect sense for the card to struggle under mid/high settings in BFBC2.

If I were you, I'd be looking to upgrade ASAP.

Yep - it's not a strong card and high settings will tax it severely resulting in degraded performance.

T acheive a sembalance of smooth gameplay, you will have to lower quite a few settings.

Try medium settings (AA and HBAO off) and tweak from there. You may even have to settle for low on a few settings.

It says recommended 4870+ and your running a 4550.

The general attributes match .... but the actual processing power does not. thats why its failing the GPU test.

At least for high settings.


As suggested just try lower settings.

Your problem is twofold: your video card isn't very strong and you only have a dual core cpu. Most of the time your cpu wouldn't be a problem, but with BC2 it is.

Have a look at this chart to see what video cards are doing at your resolution of 1680x1050: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 GPU Performance In-depth > 1680x1050 High/Medium/Low - TechSpot

Keep in mind that these charts were done using an i7 @ 3.7GHz, which is considerably more cpu strength than possible with a dual core.

BC2 is poorly optimized, and so the more physical cores you have, the better your game runs. BC2 does not take advantage of hyper threading, so that you have hyper threading is irrelevant; as far as the game is concerned, you only have 2 cores.

Another gig of RAM wouldn't hurt either. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

There are several things which determine how a video card will perform: number of cores and shaders, clock speeds, the memory interface and onboard RAM. For now, those details don't really matter, all you want to know is which one runs your game the best.

The answer really boils down to how much do you/can you spend?

Can your board run two cards? Yes, but you would not want to do that. One of your slots is PCI-E 16x, the other PCI-E 4x, and, from the looks of it, in order to run a second card in the lower slot, you'd have to give up your USB connectors. Of course, the main issue is the video card only running at 4x; that would cripple it and make the expense not worth it. Stick with 1 really good video card.

Again, have a look at this chart. It will tell you what cards are running the game at. You should also look at the GTX 460's, not listed on the charts. Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 1 GB Graphics Card Review (page 11) - X-bit labs

Gaming is subjective. What an acceptable fps for you may or may not be acceptable for another, so nobody but you can make that call.
