Exactly. Maybe save now, but don't buy until you know if you need it. Hopefully there will be an accessible beta so we can find out sooner rather than later. But hearing that they are using a 580 makes me comfortable: at least current HW can handle it. Plus, we OC around here They probably don't because they need to know how it runs on standard hardware.

I've only got the one GTX570, and I still haven't heard anything that makes me nervous. My next purchase is still gonna be an SSD

You're one of the most paranoid person I've seen. How many times do you have to ask or mention whether your card can play this game or not? You have a 6970 which will be more enough to max the game when its out and optimized. Besides the game is in pre alpha state and you weirdos are already whining about potential system requirements.

Your system, my system, and many others that post here should have no problem maxing the game out. I'd worry about it when benchmarks come out.

SLI 480's will do the job spectacularly. No need to upgrade to 500's unless you want to run triple monitor. If you want to upgrade wait for Nvidia Keplar (The 28nm cards that will probably names GTX 680 and so on) which will be releasing end of year.

Guys, multiple things about the "only one 580" concern:

That doesn't mean that ONLY a 580 will run the game well. It means that a single 580 will.

That also doesn't mean that a single 570, 560, or equivalent card won't run the game well.

That also means that a single 580 breezed through a pre-Alpha build of the game, which is nowhere near fully optimized. NVIDIA/AMD will more than likely release drivers that further push optimization for BF3.

We don't KNOW how well the 580 ran the game, nor how high up the game settings were. It may have achieved over 100fps for all we know, letting a 460/etc. easily achieve well above 40fps.

Too much concern. It's been confirmed: If you can run BC2 smoothly, you can bet your ass you can run BF3 smoothly.

BC2 is a pretty great console port. It is one of very few examples of a console port that was well done. Proper DX10/11 integration, higher player count, good interface to satisfy us PC gamers etc. I really hate when people bash BC2 for being a console port, because they obviously haven't given it a chance. People read "console port" and already believe it's going to flop because of the recent history of console ports. Dice did a great job with BC2. If they have built BF3 from the ground up specifically for PC, it's going to be mind-blowing, I just know it. It's pretty cool of them to play a back and forth turn game between PCs and consoles. PC got BF2, where consoles got their horrible BF2:MC, consoles got Bad Company 1 and 1943, which were skipped on PC, console and PC both got BC2, which was a port from console to PC and now BF3 is again coming to all platforms, being a PC port to console. Keep both audiences happy. I'd say the PC audience is much happier though, and stays committed for much longer to the same game. I give BF3 5 years of life; likely more if SDK mod tools are released.

Anyone else notice that HL2 and BF2 came out somewhat closely together? Maybe Valve has a little surprise for us shortly after BF3.
