That makes me happy. I hate any one hit kill that isn't a headshot or the result of an explosion.

Just read through the last few pages of this thread, for some reason I haven't been getting my email updates... I'll have to look into that.

Anywho, back to the graphics topic people were talking about, I watched the video with the guy saying that having two GTX 580's would be safe... And then someone posted that they didn't think they would?? (not in those exact words). Why wouldn't a GTX 580 sli system be safe? That would be crazy for it not to be, a single one should run the game on high settings, a dual GPU system of that caliber should MAX everything out with very high frames.

I don't know if it's just me, but I think a lot of guys are hyping the system specs required for this game a little too much, to the point of Super overkill. To even think that you will need more than two high end GPU's for this game is just ridiculous. There is a big difference between being a enthusiast and a gamer.

Gamers play with what they need, the can have a mid range system, run the latest games at 40-50+ or even 50-60+ frames with no problems, while spending the least amount of $$. Enthusiast, can't settle for good enough, they have to have the best, even though 2 years from now most of what they purchased will be outdated and a $200 dollar mid-range card will out do the card they paid $600 bucks for, but hey, it's their money.

Gamers should not let enthusiast cloud there minds with overspending and needless purchases. I know there is the enthusiast inside of all of us, minus the money to get the things we would like to buy, but try not to mix up the things we want with things we need.

You can run a game with 4xAA and No V-Sync and have 40-50frames, Then crank it up to 8xAA and V-Sync on and your frames can drop to less than 30. And for most of us the difference in the two settings is barley even visible (not worth the performance hit).


on another note, just browsing around found this guy, on youtube who has a pretty good mid-range system and BF3 looks to be running pretty good on a single 6870, I know this is the alpha, and you can't tell what his graphics are set at, or what his FPS are.

Removed Vid...

The 6870 is one (if not the best) of the best Price/Performance Cards on the market, aside from it's little brother/sister the 6850. (Not saying this just because I have one) lol, it's true.
so if your looking to get similar performance or better a single 6870, or equal card will be fine, Crossfire or SLI will yield even better performance I would expect.

Okay~ so I want to get this game with a discount and I can do that on Direct2Drive if I preorder there, but I want the Origin preorder bonuses and the 48 hour~ so was wondering if anyone has any tips to get a discount off of EA for Origin that I could use. A code, or any kind of technique or site I could go to? 15-20% would be hot, but I'll take anything at this point.

T3Beatz, if I'm correct, the NDA applies to the vid you have posted. I would edit it out or the mods will do that for ya.

[EDIT] I agree with what you have typed though. Especially the difference between gamer and enthusiast, and why it's important that BF3 caters to 'gamers'.

I ran alpha maxed at 1920x1080 with my 470 on highest settings. That being said the alpha is unfinished so to speak and it's apparent that it's unfinished. But FB2 is supposed to be extremely optimized so..

That was me, I was commenting about the Vram on the card they showed. 1536 MB.

2x 580's on a single display, I'm sure you'll be fine but that seems like a low Vram as Alpha used 1.3ish and that was a smaller map with only 32 players (And without jets and heli's) and on LOW settings.

Were not sure if 2x 580's will hold you through on MAX settings (but probable) but I sure as hell bet 1.5 GB Vram won't.

I ran the alpha fine with an i-750/5850 at stock settings and it looked and played fine.

Honestly though, it was an Nvidia sponsored event with an Nvidia rep conducting the interview.

Why would they not at some point try to assert that two of their most expensive GPUs would be the best to run one of the most anticipated PC launches this year?
