Re: AREA 51 Best Video card with i975X?

Dell has this page

I would recommend just upgrading to a single graphic cards, ATI or Nvideo as you like.

For Battlefield 3 the lowest card i recommend is GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6950. and more video memory the better.  

For the rest of your system , what Tesla said.  

One warning.  The very high end video cards on that motherboard have some problems with Battlefield 3 on 64 player maps.  Fix is to turn down the texture settings to match the video memory.

Battlefield 3 is more dependant on the video card and video card memory than on the CPU or main memory.
