z570 cpu& graphic card upgrade

2011-12-20, 2:23 AM

i have the Z570 idea padm what it is, my system runs modern warefare 3 and a few other games fine, but not battlefield 3, it works but it lags, even so it should still work on low settings, and im also wondering if i could upgrade the cpu or graphics card, thanks

hi kyskidz
you can upgrade cpu and/or ram ( i don't think it's possible to upgrade the graphic card )
before, can you give us some more information such as ram and graphic card specifications.

did you check game's requirements?
maybe it's your graphic card. can you tell us which model of graphic you have?

as you can see from the link above, battlefield 3 needs at least nvidia/ati graphic card. ( intel not supported ) so, you can play the game but expecting good performance on intel card would be mistake.

it's not about the cpu, you need to upgrade the graphic card. but it's not possible to upgrade graphic cards for notebook computers.
