Default Battlefield Bad Company 2 CPU Usage

Hey guys,

Does anyone here experience very high CPU usage when they play battlefield bad company 2?

I know BBC2 is a CPU whore of a game but to what extent?

I have an i5 750 and a hd5870 and when i watch the CPU during games it sits at around 70-80%

I can see it utilizing all 4 cores and the game runs extremely fast so i cant complain

Just curious how high other peoples CPU usage is in this game

cheers

I think I see about 50-60% usage on each core.

I have no issues with this game on my i7's but my brother is using a AMD 940 and this game and MW2 seem to crash on his system constantly I'm not sure why, I've tested RAM, and tried a different video card and it still crashes even formatted just to be safe, next step I guess is to reseat the CPU with new Thermal Paste and see if that makes any difference?

Any other game he plays is fine such as L4D2, CS:S, etc..
