Task Manager may show BFBC2 using up to 6 threads, that doesn't mean the game benefits from it.

Yea, BF3 may possibly run BETTER than BC2 does on all our PCs. I'm looking forward to that, but still want to upgrade at least my GPU because I can't handle BC2 maxed out. I want butter smooth gameplay at 1080p with everything to the max!

This is what im hoping...

Will be rocking SLI 560Ti 2gb's in the next couple of days to play games in NVSurround, I have no idea how the Open beta is going to cope with SLI AND NVSurround, but seeing as how both of these options have been around for a couple of years, BF3 should have support for them.

Basically, if the beta runs ok on my SLI 560's, ill upgrade to SLI 580 3gb's...

If the game runs Extremely well, ill probably upgrade anyway! (Burning a hole in my pocket, lol

I think Kepler might be out from Nvidia by the end of the year and that includes maybe the HD7000 series ATI cards. I am holding out with my SLI GTX260 set up till Kepler.

The 2600k is a 4 core processor with 8 threads hyper-threading. You are wrong, if all you do is game the 2500k and 2600k might as well be equals. Heck I don't even feel like going to manual turn off the hyper-threading for games so why spend the extra 100 bucks?

I'm hopin for a drop in prices on the 580 3gb's to around AUD$400ea when kelper hits the market.
With selling my 560 2gb's AUD$250ea (wishful) i could only be out $300! I've already go my cards picked out and they look sex!

Here's to hoping at least...

That is a decent plan. If Kepler comes out and the 3gb 580s tank in price a lot I might go with 2 of those instead depending on the bench marks of the Kepler. Here is hoping to good deals for both of us. Heck a 560Ti like yours right now for me would be an upgrade but a bad investment at this time already.

I just purchased a GTX 560 Ti from EVGA. Hopefully, that would be enough horsepower for the next three years. By 2014, I am moving to a new platform entirely. (I'm keeping the case, PSU, and hard drives, though.)

We don't know how it will end up.

Maybe we see BF3 performing better than what BFBC2 did, maybe you need a lot more GPU power, we don't know yet, hopefully it is as easy to run as BFBC2 was.
