Please help BF3
Hello, I need your help please, my pc barely runs BF3 at low settings, it looks terrible I can't stand playing like that. I have a Lenovo H405 7723-1CU Desktop PC - AMD Athlon X4 645 3.10GHz, 4GB ram, win 7 graphics card is an nvidia 9500gt 1gb ddr2 I for certain know that GPU has to be replaced but what about the power supply? I want to keep costs down for the graphics card, a maximum of $150-$170, whats the best I could get for that price and I dont really know how much a power supply costs and which would be a good one (price,brand etc) [url="http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7120328&CatId=4928"]My link[/url]

thanks in advance

I'm not sure about gfx card, but for PSU i recommend the corsair 650tx Price is about 90 dollars. great prices for a great PSU. I have one and haven't had any problems.

Save up more & get a GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores. You'll be able to play on Medium/High with one of those.

If you're hard-set on $150-170 max: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625 that's $135 and should run the game on Low/Medium with no issues. Also it only needs 1 6-pin power plug, so a CX600W from Corsair would work perfectly (cheap but well made PSU)

I agree, you need to upgrade your GPU. Get yourself a GTX 560 or better and a Corsair TX650 power supply. It's going to cost you about $335 from Newegg.com but it's totally worth upgrading.
