Hey i feel like a huge noob (This will be my 3rd topic asking about the laptop im getting's capabilities)but i have a question: Base on the specs below could i play BF3 at decent frame rates? (Perferably on Medium Quality graphics)
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7-2670QM (2.2 GHz, 6MB L3 Cache) with Turbo Boost up to 3.1 GHz (Quad-Core I believe)
1GB AMD Radeon™ HD 7470M GDDR5 Discrete Graphics™ [HDMI, VGA]
8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
750GB 7200 rpm Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
15.6" High Definition HP LED Brightview (1366x768)
I personally test a range of GFX cards for games as I have multiple cards lying around. I have played BF3 at High 1024x768 with a card 3-4 grades below yours with slightly worse clocks. For the most part you will play it at 40-50 Fps. The game is enjoyable at 30+ in my opinion. The only issues with it are Origin, and Battlelog.
