The true BF3 multiplayer footage is at 4:15PM EST, this 11:30AM nonsense was just some dumb short interview.

http://bf3blog.com/battlefield-3-system-requirements/
Minimum requirements for Battlefield 3
•OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7
•Processor: Core 2 Duo @ 2.0GHz
•RAM: 2GB
•Graphic card: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible Nvidia or AMD ATI card.
•Graphics card memory: 512 MB
•Hard drive: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version

Recommended system requirements for Battlefield 3
•OS: Windows 7 64-bit
•Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU
•RAM: 4GB
•Graphics card: DirectX 11 Nvidia or AMD ATI card, GeForce GTX 460, Radeon Radeon HD 6850
•Graphics card memory: 1 GB
•Hard drive: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version

I'd say build your system around the recommended requirement for an fluid experience of course, if you have more fund, buy better hardwares.
for CPU, i would recommend the latest Core i5 2500K, and for ram, just get some decent 1600 MHz DDR3 preferably cas 8 but if cas 9 is cheaper get that.

Welcome!

Since the EA "recommended" video card for BF3 is a GTX 460, I'd recommend you go for a GTX570, but that all depends on what resolution you will be running. 2500k + GTX 570 is a perfect BF3 combo that won't break your pocket too hard. ~$750 for a motherboard, RAM, 2500k, and GTX 570. I myself plan to get a 2600k with a GTX 570 or two if I can afford a second one. I'm sort of tempted to even throw my current hardware up for sale and getting the new build over with already.

I'll be running the game on 1680x1050 probably (22") what do you guys think about the HD 6870 1GB? 4GB would be enough or should I go with 8GB? sorry too much questions , thanks so much for the warm welcome !


EDIT: The reason I'm a bit confused is because I mainly game right now on an ASUS G73JH with a mobility 5870 1GB and 6GB of DDR3 and I max out BF:BC2 on 30-40fps (1600x900 awful res I know lol )

4GB is fine and an HD6870 will do well.
