Default Re: 8800GTS 512 Replacement for Bad Company 2 smoothness

I guess it's a blessing that my future wife is into computers as well. Her computer is nearly as powerful as mine. I told her that my mouse is starting to show its age, and she immediately got on newegg and started looking for a replacement for me.

BTW, In order to get Bad Company 2 to run flawlessly, you need a Quad Core CPU. A new GPU will help, but that processor won't cut it. My fiance has an e8400 overclocked to 3.8Ghz, and even at that level, the game slows down noticeably on full servers. However, a Quad Core CPU (like mine) has no problem getting the frame rates up into the 50-60 FPS range and staying there.

Hope this helps.
