    Performance boost help

    hii!

    I have an i3, but my graphics card is a crappy 9400gt. My pc can barely manage 30 fps on low. Can someone link me to a performance config or something that would make my game lighter to run?

    Depends

    Set ALL settings to low, except AF (x16) and mesh (medium)

    Run at low resolution 800x600 (windowed) and use (BF3 Borderless - Realmware BF3 Tools) to make fullscreen (less memory load)

    You probably have a Core2 something

    Set multiplier and VID to highest value

    Don't tick any checkbox below

    Hit "save" and "turn on" (if it's not on)

    At this point you should minimize it



    Download: MSI Afterburner

    This enables OC of graphics card to make it faster (beware heat though, clean your laptop vents+fan hole)

    Make sure your power management in windows is set to have 100% minimal and maximal cpu usage.

    Graphics card isn't very important, its all about how good your cpu is and how many cores it is running on.

    I know it sounds cocky of me to say this but honestly would it hurt to upgrade your graphics card? I mean for maybe about 100$ you could get a decent Radeon HD or the GTX 550 ( assuming you purchase from amazon ). if not the GTX 550 could run you about 149$

    Battlefield 3 runs 4 cores, and the i3 runs 2 cores assuming he has earlier version of this product. so yes his cpu is outdated too however if he did overclock then he could reach the 4 core requirement easily, but not many people know how to overclock or keep their computer cool enough to handle overclocking options.

    I have AMD FX-9590 black edition which costs about 699$ which is great because it's unlocked and I can tweak it however I want and it's an eight-core which is overkill for bf3 this CPU should have no problems on bf4 as well.

    but if you're on a budget build and don't care too much for the graphics and don't mind playing on medium settings you could get the AMD FX-6300 or get CPU's that come with integrated graphics if you can't afford both a CPU + GPU

    For some games that is true; however, BF3 relies on more gfx memory than cpu memory. My gfx card has 3GB DDR5 and I'm running it with an old quad core setup - I can run the game on ultra settings with max resolution just fine. OP just needs to update his GFX card. Some can be really cheap, like less than $150, and still be amazing; mine was about 145 and runs great (I bought a GTX 650).
