Re: Upgrading on a budget
Well, first and foremost, we need the model of the Acer branded computer. This way we can see if upgrading will be a possibility with the CPU and RAM. I'm fairly sure the computer has a PCI-E slot, so that's not a limiting factor. For the best game play of BC2 on a PC, a high-end dual core, and a high-end video card are the best bet. However, if you don't mind lowered graphics, and mid-level video card would suffice. Personally, I would suggest at least a mid-level quad core, and a mid-level GPU, along with at least 4GB of RAM. I play it decently with a low-end dual core CPU and a higher end GPU. Not very many people are lucky enough to get the framerates I do, with a setup similar to mine.
