    Cool Saying hi

    Hey all!
    It has been a while!
    Just wanted to stop by and say hi. I have been having some issues running BF3 and I thought my specs were decent, enough to play the game!
    Anyhow, I ran CPU-Z and wanted to share my specs. I am STARTING to look into what upgrading, modifications I can do for better performance w/out a complete rebuild...(that I cannot afford right now!)
    I will be back in a bit! Time for some yard work in the HEAT!

    the oc part worries me since i'd most likely need cooling....or more of it? what r ur thoughts there? the 7850 is a nice step up...but out of reach rt now. Have too many bills to pay for that!
    as a side note....does my memory look ok? Wondering if I should max it out to 4x 4g?

    you have 4gb? that should be ok,youd need a 64bit os to make use of more unless your running one already

    and yeah an aftermarket cooler is a must if overclocking the cpu,stock intel heatsink fan wont cut it,another cheaper step up would be the 6950/6970 gpu

    I'm running windows 7 64bit.
    (am at work right now and memory is not so dependable) but I think I have either a Thermaltake or Zalman tower cooler....No water or anything.
