Wow that Xbox Screengrab is atrocious. But, then again it is a console that costs 1/3 what my graphics card cost so it makes sense.

fair enough pal, just how it looked on first glance - that's poor but not surprising.

True - although for some reason I felt they improved the graphics a few days later on the Xbox 360 BETA

haha thanks dude, but I'm not that good to do that.

yes and no.
Xbox graphics ARE worse than PC - there's no denying that.
But you take GTA5 or Halo4 and you'll be surprised on how good the graphics are on a 6yr old or so console!

Well hopefully Mantle will allow to push the PC platform even further than previously possible. I've always thought the consoles get too much of a drubbing for what they are but then fanboys will be fanboys lol!

Don't forget mantle will potentially be available for consoles too.
I love consoles personally. Now with next gen around the corner it isn't hard to see why some people don't buy pcs.
That said you can't compare a pc with a console. The point is - a pc isn't only a gaming machine, nor a tv streaming device. It's those two and MUCH MORE.
Everyone needs a pc. So why spend £400 on a console then another £400 for a super low spec pc. When you can get a beast pc for around £200 more (400+400), meaning a £1000 build and have a pc that's capable of everything at max graphics and is a super work station?
People often overlook this and say pc gaming is more expensive.
Sure it is, but that's when you compare it in only a gaming perspective.
Anyway, some people aren't as privileged to have that much money to spend. So one must respect everyone's opinions.

So I'm finally back for a long working trip. I haven't been able to get update on this game or anything relate it for at least two weeks, so I will like if any of you could update me on this.

I have read before that the game runs better on Windows 8. Should I make the switch from 7 or is not worth it?

Any idea how a single 760 would perform on this?

I've got tests proving that it makes barely any difference.
See how it runs FIRST on win7 - and THEN see how your results compare to others.

I'll be testing it out both on win8.1 and win7 when it releases and give you unbiased opinions and benchmarks.

A single 760 will do just fine.
Between 45-60FPS should be your average FPS (like my GTX680)

what do you guys think of buying premium? is it cheaper now or should we wait for a sale?

It's really not all that farfetched to sell Premium again. It made sense from both a business standpoint and customer. The way I look at the matter is: if EA were to never release any additional content for BF3/BF4 beyond the core game, would you have felt that you were ripped off in paying $60 for BF3/BF4? I wouldn't. So I have no problem with having to pay for all the additional content, especially not if I have the ability to buy the full set cheaper (via Premium).

You must have missed the recent Gamefly offer; they had Premium going for $39.95. I jumped on it. Some people say their order was canceled, but mine wasn't and says the key will be sent to me on 10/28.

You really don't, unless your system already ran BF3 poorly.

well it can be trick is get on a bi yearly upgrade routine and you are pretty well good if you play in the high end and sell off the old hardware and recoup atleast %50 usually I get near %70 of the cost back to upgrade entire machine trick is sell your hardware before it becomes obsolete and unwanted and value drops to point it is worthless.

Can't stress enough how successful this strategy is. You can typically sell your 2 year old hardware and buy the latest for a very minimal amount out of your pocket. If anything, I'd say upgrading to the newest console 5-7 years later is more expensive, as you're lucky to get $100 for your last gen console. You also have to give up all your games as they'll be useless on the new console, even more so if you decide to switch to Playstation instead of Xbox for example.

i mean local craigslist but that is always sketchy as hell but also another route to take if your not into that.

i'll keep my hexacore till its worth $200 and throw away my mobo cause its trash and spare GPU for a spare build

It's really not that much of a nuisance to deal with online selling/shipping. You can buy coils of bubble wrap for a few dollars at Office Depot, and even get Priority boxes for free from USPS. Get used to keeping your retail boxes for your PC hardware; that makes shipping so much easier. Once you're ready to ship you don't even have to go to the post office, just print out your label from Paypal and drop it off at a blue box or hand it to your mail carrier. Trust me, I used to have your point of view too. Used to hate the thought of packing stuff up and dealing with the post office.

I just thought some might be interested in this given BF4 will have mantle API to further boost the R7/9 and 7000series GPU's performance by around %10-%20 ontop of what you see in this link http://wccftech.com/amd-radeon-r9-290x-graphic-card-previewed-pitted-4k-gaming-tests-gtx-780/

also be aware that was with the 290x in quiet mode running 800mhz core and 1050mhz ram while this shows it easily being overclocked on oem air cooling to 1130mhz core and 1550mhz ram http://wccftech.com/amd-radeon-r9-290x-overclocked-performance-unveiled-clocked-1130-mhz/ the difference from perfrmance mode and quiet mode on R9 290X is 800mhz core and 1050mhz ram in quiet mode and 1000mhz core and 1250mhz ram in performance mode so them showing it head to head in quiet mode isnt telling the full performance of the R9 290X at all but it still highly out performs the Nvidia GTX 780 and if tested even kills the Nvidia Titans for around 1/2 the cost.

I also meant to add you have the option of quiet mode power saving mode or performance mode in the CCC driver options these tests you see above were done in quiet mode which is drastically lower clocks to performance mode.

I thought this was also worth noting



Although these benchmarks are real but they were tested with a engineering sample of the card by Playwares who used older drivers.

AMD has already shipped reviewers with the Catalyst 13.11 BETA V4 which improves overall frame pacing and FPS in a variety of games.




They were not even running drivers fully supporting the R9 290X in these tests that is crazy and still performance was this high imagine after optimized drivers and such.

wow very impressive by AMD!
That's why I'm suggesting to my cousin, if he builds a gaming pc, to get AMD.

Despite that, I quite like Nvidia.
