No game would release if it could only be ran by 0.1% of PC gamers rigs.. That would be a move that would be a horrible move by DICE, since that woudl result in almost nobody buying the game.

I'm 100% that the OP was talking about maxing the game, not just running it as usual.

It's perfectly fine to have a game that's hard to max, as long as it can still be played on lower setting on wide ranges of HW. I'd actually say it's a good thing if people can't max it yet. That's exactly why crysis has stayed alive all these years. People like to get something more out of a game when they upgrade their computer.

Disregard my previous comment

All we about the rig that was used to play the fault line episodes is that it housed a single GTX 580

people praise it for the graphics, and it's one of the best selling PC games of all time.

(well some guys say it's badly optimized but whatever)

I'm certain that was the point Alatar was trying to make to begin with, unless Crysis has a reputation for something I don't know about...

And OP, please change the title!!!!!!

all the prerelease in game videos are runnning off a single stock gtx580. the video are smooth as butter. so i think sli gtx580 will be overkill.

I will have no issue for a long time
i will be able to play BF3 with more than 80fps for sure.

Nvidia GTX 580 SLI
core clock

925mhz
memory clock---2200mhz

by the time BF3 release GTX 580 will probably $400 or less, so i can get the third card.

I thought Crysis 2 was going to be impossible to max out on my Gtx 460 but I get 50-60 fps with it at highest possible config and BF3 is going to be a PC port so there's a chance in the mediums that even I could play it at high-highest settings. These questions shouldn't be asked just now though...

I hear the Frostbite2 engine will be more efficient than what's in BC2 and the graphics are definitely better, so I it should run about the same as BC2 smile.gif
