I'm a long time PC gamer that has been dabbling around the PS3 I own. But Battlefield 3 has pulled me back to PC gaming.
My system is really struggling with the game. I'd imagine that my graphics card would probably be the weak link now (given how GPU dependent games tend to be). Would you agree? And it so, given that I don't really want to upgrade the rest of my PC right now, what would the 'right' video card be to match the rest of my system specs?
CPU: Pentium dual core E5400
OS: Windows Vista Home premium 64bit
VID CARD: NVIDIA 8800GT
MONITOR: Samsung S23A750D 1920x1080 Resolution (not currently being used on this PC as it needs a displayport or HDMI input)
I was thinking either the Radeon HD6850 or 6870 - would that be a nice FPS boost?
Thanks in advance!
