It's not very hard at all really. Not nearly as intimidating as building a full rig.

That being said, the 7750 was a good choice for ~100. On all low settings you should get closer to 60fps on BF3.

Being on consoles you're used to the 30FPS lock, so you could change some settings to medium i bet

He'll want that 60 if he hits a 64 player map. You have to take dip into consideration as well. I play on all low settings and it still look really good.

Well, if you end up playing BF3, let Rhu know. He will text me and I will jump on a game with you guys. Even if I am in the middle of a scrim against another clan on Chivalry, I'll jump over for several games ^_^

That said, I have yet to play with PP and Trotter on BF3.

I can't play any online MP due to my current internet connection. Empty servers are ok but full servers I have pings over 100 and I won't be "that guy".

Care if a few of us join you this weekend? Having a LAN and I want to get my buddy to appreciate Hardcore. Just know that we're noobs.

I was thinking about getting some ram while I was at it. Will this do for what I have?

That's there because AMD only officially supported 1333 when those chips came out. I bet he could set them to 1600 easy, and with only two sticks it shouldn't strain the IMC either.

Those sticks should be fine.
