    Hi guys, just bought BF3 to find it doesn't run very well on my computer. At the moment I have an Intel e8400 cpu, 2gb memory, 9600gso 768mb and a cheapy 500w PSU. I will eventually upgrade everything but I'm thinking my of upgrading my graphics first as my CPU is OK (ish) and obviously I will need a decent PSU to run it. What graphics & PSU would you recommend? price range is £150-200ish for both (don't mind going a little over). Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    Dont think you'll need to put a new PSU in just for graphics, as long as you aren't running 5 hard drives :D

    I'd get some more memory too, an extra 2GB to take it upto 4GB

    Can recommend the Radeon 6950, i bought one a couple weeks back, runs lovely!

    I recently bought the OCZ ZS 750w PSU for just under £70 from Dabs and got the ATi Radeon HD 5770 off a mate for £25 (upgrade from the HD 5750, worth it though). If I didn't get the HD 5770 for such a good price, I would have gone for this card: XFX ATi Radeon 6790 HD.
