Question Battlefield 3 RESOLUTION VS VIDEO CARD VS CPU.

Hi,
I am playing BF3 which plays fine on High settings on my desktop PC which is running the GT240. (outdated card)

I also like to play on my laptop whilst i am travelling but my laptop is having a few small issues playing the game even though the specs meet the suggested criteria.

My laptop is a quad core 1.4 ghz, 4gb ram and Radeon HD 6720G2. I set the video quality to low but i still had issues.

I dragged the screen resolution down to 1280x720 which helped. (i think) Is there anything else i can do to help it run? It kinda runs, but not 100% all the time.

What is the bottleneck in my laptop do u think? CPU, ram or video card?

Cheers,

Muppet.
