Tell him no.

I can't tell if you are serious or no. ._.

He wants to run it with everything set to Low.

@J35T3R : Thank you for the suggestion, but I'm too busy searching through the whole thread. ._.

Well, if he wants to run it at 800x600 and everything at low and still get 20 fps, then yes, he might be able to run it.

Oh okay, gonna tell him then. :(
I wanted to ask you guys since that when I quickly searched on google people said that BF3 will run smoothly enough to be playable, only if you don't set the settings too high.

Finally got money, got about 400,- to spend. Gnna use it, or at least a part of it, to upgrade my pc. The weakest part of my pc atm is the processor, so...

i5 vs i7 purely for gaming: which one and why?
Also, is there any major difference inbetween i5's/i7's that is important to take in consideration?

Also, not for now but later (couple of months or so): graphics card. buy an extra 570 (so i go SLI 570's), or replace with one 680? Benefits/disadvantages?

Go i5 for gaming unless you need Hyper threading for rendering and mass multitasking. Also, personal opinion but I don't think the 680 is really worth it. It's like a 15% improvement over a 670 for about $130 more.

If the difference between the i5 and i7 isn't so big and is the difference is suitable for your budget, I'd personally go with the i7.
But, if you need the extra monies, there's nothing wrong with the i5, performs more than adequately for gaming.

IG is dumb, the i5 is more than you'll ever need. CPU has minimal affect on gaming, it's mostly the GPU's job. And the i5 is only slightly lower than the i7.

The extra cash isn't worth hyperthreading and a 2MB bigger L3 cache

CPU wise depends entirely on the game, for example Skyrim is CPU intensive and BF3 is GPU intensive. Also a lot of games don't support more than 4 cores being used, physical or virtual, so it really varies game to game as far as I know. Though it's also possible in the future games start to take more advantage of +4 cores and hyper threading at the moment for games i5's are pretty much ideal. As for the GPU, it looks like the SLI 570 has much higher average FPS but some people complain about stuttering and heat. [Solved] 2 570's 2.5GB sli vs 1 670 - Graphics-Cards - Graphic-Displays

And don't forget that SLI introduces more complications. I'd generally say no to SLI.

I'd say 670. If you want to pursue a more budget orientation, 660 Ti.
