The difference between 35FPS and 60FPS on a 60hz monitor is the same as the difference between 60FPS and 120FPS on a 120hz monitor. It's just amazing how smooth 120hz is (though it can get a lot smoother. My monitor does 170hz)


Vsync sucks, though I use it in slower games. Still looks like a slide show. It's not even "fine". It's worse than "fine" for FPS games.
120hz is not that good either, buy a 240hz monitor. Skip 120hz.

There are no 240hz monitors. The ones that say they are, are fake 240hz. Such as 120hz TVs are fake 120hz, in most ways at least.

I see a thread titled 'will my current rig run BF3' and I know, just know, that by page 2 it's derailed.

Secondly, why ask people here who read the same posts, scan the same sources what the requirements are for a game that hasn't been released and quite purposley has not issued min requirements?

According to DICE Rendering Architect Johan Andersson, if you can run Bad Company 2 comfortably you should be alright for BF3. He tweeted “You don’t need to worry if you can play BC2 perfectly, BF3 will scale up to even higher detail for eyecandy, but not requiredâ€.

yes i have done that already. Thanks though. Just on here to get some more opinions and learn some things. Like when the thread derailed, I learned something new.

Now I would like to know why everyone in this thread seems so rude...
Am I just reading it that way or what?

I apologize.

My problem, and it's my problem, not anyone else's, is that a post such as yours brings out people who like to argue. Look at the monitor res questions and flames this thread turned into.

When a member asks a question no one really knows anything about you get what you got, opinions, which leads to arguments which quickly becomes flames.
