    nice system! I could use an upgrade myself.

    yeah, I think he's on a budget. some of your suggestions are a little pricey.

    Thanks.

    I only wanted to show him that there is nothing wrong with his machine, beside that it's a bit weak for BF3.

    Hey guys, sorry for disappearing, I didn't see that there were more posts! Anyway, I just got my new CPU installed yesterday. I updated the BIOS on my motherboard (as my current version wasn't compatible with my new CPU) and everything went smoothly (I was slightly nervous about flashing the BIOS). I went with the AMD one that dirtyvu suggested. The Phenom II x4 965 black edition. It works perfectly so far, and gave BF3 a HUGE boost!! I now run BF3 at high settings quite smoothly and after tweaking some settings, it works perfectly. Thanks a million guys for your help (especially dirtyvu). Much appreciated for someone like me who doesn't know much about CPUs!!

    great to hear it worked out for you! a lot of ways to seriously improve a gaming experience without having to drop serious money.

    That Phenom II will last you a long time and will serve you well.
