Okay... that's a glitch. This game won't run on your PC; it requires Direct X 10 and you have 9. If it were to run, it'd would be extremely slow.

Both are pretty much equally bad, though I would say that the GPU is actually the bottleneck, especially at that resolution. If the CPU does happen to be the bottleneck, then it certainly wouldn't be what I call a big bottleneck.

In other words, he needs to upgrade his whole PC; nothing in it is substantial enough to get a good FPS. I would recommend you to stay away from this game until you get some better hardware, however, you can technically run it.

I can't find AMD Radeon HD 4600 series on the list, some says it was one of the HD 4650 1gb, but my other parts are accurate.


Anyways can I run this game in low 40 fps, my video card is AMD HD 4600 Series?


Thanks for the help!

you can get 40+fps with that 4600 series on low, but you will have to lower your res to 720p

no black borders... so, you can make a custom resolution, download a bf3 setting editor or maybe go to the ini file and change the res there to something like 960x540. with that res you can get around 25-30 on lowest settings, but it wont look pretty...
