So basically. I'm tired of asking, "Will X run Y?"

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
You know, the, will a Bulldozer run BF3 Nice!? Should I get this GPU or this GPU?

I'm just wondering, how do I go about answering that question myself. So I don't have to beat a dead horse? Do I go on what the recommended settings are. Basically what I'm asking is. How do I know what hardware I will need/want to run something IE: a game, a peice of software etc...

You can't really... Not when one of the products hasn't gone retail, and another is in beta.

BF3 runs only slightly better than Crysis 2 on my rig, and Crysis 2 is quite a bit better visually.

You should form your own opinion without relying on the internet to think for you.

You know, now that I think about it there are a lot of questions about what card to get even from me. I'd be nice to plug in basics like CPU, PSU, desired resolution and game and get kicked back offerings for what video cards fit the bill without having to look at dozens of benchmark sites that might have used different CPU/PSU/RAM than you are planning on.

Just buy the top end of everything, then come back and ask people what your bottlenecks are, then buy more top end stuff. Then you'll find out you could have built a system for half the price and not notice any difference.
