Indeed, with 4xMSAA and 16xAF
I use an average of 1250mb of Vram with that amount of AA

It sure is, but with triple-wide gaming resolution, Vram gets eaten up like its nobody's business!

Check out these numbers...

I think you and me are experiencing the same thing, a kind of digital performance anxiety if you will.

My God, those numbers make me vomit in my mouth a little bit. 6Gb total VRAM might not be as excessive as it initially appears.

I'm feeling your Skyrim love too, hope it's going to be as good as I hope it will be.
Lol, I want to mock you for the Bieber references, but I am giddy at the thought of BF3 myself. I really hope it has that desert combat feel of huge maps with awesome vehicles. And artillery dammit, I miss artillery!

As far as Skyrim, the last I heard is that vanilla skyrim has over 300 hours (!) of gameplay by itself. Cannot. Wait.

I can't help it. My mind just drifts to the Bieb. Agreed on the artillery, I just hope BF3 feels more like BF2 than BC2. Not that BC2 is a bad game, but BF2 holds my heart.

Jeez, and that's before mods/expansions. My missus is going to have a very lonely autumn.

i HOPE they don't do like in BC2 where on atacama and white pass where the snow and the dust blows up and visibility becomes 0.0000000000000001% that utterly annoys me. i mean i understand you're in a desert and deserts have sandstorms but still...

6gb total will only by 3gb effective on 2 cards...

Im looking to get the 580's if i need them (term used loosely) due to BETA performance...

or, wait till kelper and see what the kind of performance increase is like with the die-shrink, people are talking 50% improvement, so ill look into that, or if the improvement isnt as much as first thought, then i might pick up 2 reduced price 580 3gb's

I think we are getting paranoid about it.

Considering BFBC2 was a crappy console port (We have to be honest here, optimization is not good at all.) and Battlefield 3 is a PC Port, I can't guarantee it, but in my opinion I think it will run maxed out with great graphics and still perform same or better than BFBC2.

That's my thoughts though, until we try the BETA and newer driver updates (Keep in mind both AMD and Nvidia will have to optimize their drivers for BF3 during the beta) we can't really tell for sure.

Considering a GTX460 can see 500fps (We don't know what resolution or settings yet, but that is a huge frame rate, no way you'd get that in BFBC2 even at 800x600) seeing the filtered images, I'm quite sure this game will run better than BFBC2.
