See how the VRam on your 470 does before you SLI it, I have 460SLI and am anxiously waiting to see how they do. Might wait till next gen Nvidia or AMD cards for upgrade though.

I maxed out my 1.2GB of VRAM in the Alpha (in 1920*1080), not sure how the final game will be compared but if my asumptions are correct this game will eat VRAM like nothing else once you start turning on AA and AF.

Stop talking about hardware, you guys are making me want to do a rebuild. D:
If my 460 can't handle high settings during beta with AA/AF at 1x, HBAO off, I'll upgrade, if not I'll stay with this rig until IB/Kepler.

speaking of hardware i wanna finish my build THIS week; i was waiting for some kind of sale on the 2600k but i'm not seeing any so i think tonight i'm going to bite the bullet on the 2600k and BF3 from origin...

This is scary. I am lacking VRAM then. I got only 1GB. This must be Crossfire SLI biggest drawback: You got like 50% more GPU power than a 580 but you have only 1GB of vram.

Some games seems to handle this better than others however by caching in the ram. I heard somewhere BF3 would do that, think it was in FB2 presentation. I may have to stick with MLAA or FXAA rather than MSAA. I am usually ok with only 4X-8X AF.

So the Beta is likely on Friday? Sounds very good.

Dteg: A 2500k would be a better performance/price move. Should be the same performance. I am waiting to see Bulldozer performance and I'll change both my board and CPU. I'll grab a Radeon 7000 series next year.

I showed the same video to my buddy at work, he's an avid Blops / MW2 player.
First thing he said, "what map is this on MW2?"... Needless to say I lol'd hard.
I told him it was MW3 and he looked so disappointed, I showed him the BF3 videos and he canceled his pre-order and got BF3 instead!

I was a CoD player up until MW1, I have to say every new CoD that comes out gets more and more pathetic!

It hurts knowing that MW3 and its 1,000 map packs is going to outsell BF3 by a landslide. However, quality > quantity any day.
