    2 weeks ago I buy GT 710 2GB DDR3 and remplace my old Geforce 210

    I dont konw reason but I have problems to play Battlefield 3 sometimes game have little glitchs (textures and colors dont show good) but not always those problems

    My computer have this specs:

    CPU : Intel Core I7 3770 3,40 GHZ Turbo Boost 3,90 GHz
    GPU : Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 2GB DDR3
    Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2H-USB3 Rev 1.2
    Memory Ram : 8GB DDR3 1333 MHz Dual Channel (x2 4GB DDR3)
    HDD : Toshiba DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 rpm SATA3
    Optical Disc Drive : LG HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NSB0
    Power Supply : Phoenix F.A.550ATXP4 550W ATX
    Operating System : Windows 8.1 64 Bits

    Drivers are updated (not only nvidia)

    I play another games and I dont have problems.
    Its posible Power Supply not good for this nvidia?
    Box show nvidia need 300W (gt 210 I use in 4 years have same this)

    Thx in advance

    It may be that the game is just too demanding, try dropping the settings to absolute minimum. Either that or maybe try undervolting the VRAM? I'd be loathe to do that if other games are working fine, though

    The GT 710 is not designed for playing games. It’s designed for multimedia playback and basic use in machines that do not have built in Intel graphics. Especially AAA games such as Battlefield 3 where they try and push graphics high in order to make a bigger spectacle and grab more sales.

    Don’t have the specs to hand, but any GPU comparison site will show just how weak that card is. I can’t get a stable connection to show me (on a high speed cross-country train right now) but a quick and dirty lookup shows me the 710 is roughly 2-4 times weaker than an 8800 GT, so it’s no surprise it can’t work with that game.

    Also, minimum requirements for Battlefield 3 (pulled from top google result):

    • Processor: 2GHZ Dual Core (Core 2 Duo 2.4GHZ or Athlon x2 2.7GHZ)
    • Memory: 2GB RAM
    • Hard drive: 20GB
    • Graphics card AMD: DirextX 10.1 compatible with 512MB RAM (ATI Radion 3000, 4000, 5000 or 6000 series, with ATI Radion 3870 or higher performance)
    • Graphics card Nvidia: DirectX 10.0 compatible with 512MB RAM (Nvidia GeForce 8, 9, 200, 300, 400 or 500 series with Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT or higher performance)
