z570 cpu& graphic card upgrade

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.

Re: z570 cpu& graphic card upgrade

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

Re: z570 cpu& graphic card upgrade

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.

Re: z570 cpu& graphic card upgrade

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.
