hd 6870 will handle it on medium @ about 60fps but why are you cutting your system down so much? cutting down visuals on modern shooters makes em look fugly

Well i mainly care about gameplay, like minecraft has good gameplay but bad graphics. Even if i can play the game at high settings, i play at normal for better framerate. If it's over 60 fps with either graphics it does not really matter though. Normal will be fine with me.

I'm not sure, but you might not be able to find a card that small that will handle BF3.

Unless you're rubbing your feet on a rug while handling the motherboard and throwing pieces all over the place, transferring contents from one case to the next is very easy. You don't need to be that worried about it.

What are your other components? If they're all really low end stuff too, it might be worth it to just build a whole new system. If you just want good framerates, and don't care about maxing games out, you could probably get away with like, less than $500 for a whole new system. And even something like that would actually play all but the most recent, super graphic intense games, at pretty high settings, too.

No my computer itself is really good, 3.7 GHz 4GB ram, It's just the video card thats the problem. I have the acer AX3950 if you can look up all my specs.

Considering how overpriced any half decent low profile cards are you'd be better spending £40 and a reasonably good case and a full size GPU.

I was looking at getting a HD 7750 good bang for the buck.

7750 is the fastest low-profile card I know of. It should run BF3 with decent fps at low settings.

 Maybe a mix of low and medium.

That's also a MUCH higher res than he wants.

Yeah should run at 60fps on medium at 720p

He would be better off getting the 7770.. Which isn't much more expensive and has a huge performance increase..

I believe with the 7770 that would require the needed power connector, which how he explains his PC he probably doesn't have.
