I really doubt it would. Maybe look at an upgrade like a 6850?

I'm actually surprised that you could played Arkham City with that video card, since its not for gaming. I assume you're playing at a low resolution in order to get good performance out of it but I can't say for sure if it would run well while playing Battlefield 3 since the minimum requirements ask for a 8800gt which I believe is way more powerful than the Ati 5450. I'll bet you'll be able to run the game but don't expect to get high frames per second or image quality settings.

Everything I write is Sarcasm.

@Racer 01
Are you saying that you are getting low fps or that the won't start?

My 2600k cpu video graphics does about 6 fps.

Overclocking your cpu in BF3 helps with fps.

The HD5450 is WAY down on the list performance-wise. It's slower than my (5?) years-old X800XL card and I believe HD5450 even has lower resolution (although the 5450 complies with more recent DirectX standards and is HDCP compliant)

It should be also noted that just because a card (whether AMD(Radeon) or NVIDIA has a higher series number than another card does NOT mean it is automatically faster/better (e.g. HD5450 is higher number than HD4850, but performance of the HD5480 is much much lower). Each series level typical has a "value" card(s) that may offer compliance with various newer video standards but has severely degraded performance. The performance may also be intentionally degraded to be able to offer a "fanless" version card in a given card series.
