Battlefield 3

Can someone check out my system specs and let me know if my pc will run Battle field 3 well please?
The only thing i think may be letting it down is the graphics card, it is abit dated.

- Minimum System Requirements:
OS: Windows Vista SP2 32-Bit
Processor: 2 GHz Dual Core
Memory: 2 GB
Graphics Card (AMD): DirectX 10.1 compatible with 512 MB RAM

- Recommended System Requirements:
OS: Windows 7 64-Bit
Processor: Quad-Core
Memory: 4 GB
Graphics Card: DirectX 11 compatible with 1024 MB RAM

Your OS, CPU, and RAM are ok.
Your grapics card could be a problem if you play Battlefield 3 at 1920x1080... It also only supports DirectX 10.1.
Will your pc run Battlefield 3? Yes it will, but not at high settings or at high resolutions.

Check your system specifications on Game-Debate PC game system requirements, social network and system specs

(i love this game )

Got Bf3 today and it doesnt run well on high settings because of my GPU BUT the low settings (with 1 or 2 options on high) look really good anyway pretty cool game so far!
may look at upgrading my graphics card in the future.

Yes, you should upgrade it.. And if you have 2 pci-express slots, you can also use your GT 240 as a dedicated Physx card and a new GPU as the main grapics card

Well the 240 is direct x10.1 compatible, if I got maybe a gtx550ti or a 560 can I still crossfire them?

no.. you can make a Crossfire (= Nvidia SLI) only with 2 identic grapics cards.

But you can use a secondary grapics card as a dedicated Physx card, if it supports it.

Nvidia GTX 550 TI = main grapics card
Nvidia GT 240 = dedicated Physx card (only dedicated to speed up physic accelleration)

I'm not an expert of this because i have only one PCI-E slot and i can't have a dedicated Physx card.

Ahh I see, cool I'll check my motherboard and see if I have a spare pci-e slot and try it when I upgrade
