I have so much respect for DICE at this point. Valve and DICE are two names that have earned my money. They bring great products and stay true to the PC gaming community! Battlefield 3 should be the first person shooter that I've been anticipating and then some!

Maybe I'm just weird but I really loved the fact that I bought Crysis and couldn't play it maxed out even with the system I had at the time (Athlon 64 X2 6400+ and GeForce 8800 Ultra at crazy clocks). It still looked fantastic and I loved tweaking it to get better performance and visuals.

Then, upgrade time rolled around and I did a core upgrade to a Q6600 X38 setup and I saw some improvements, I could take it up a few more notches and actually saw the improvements. It wasn't like I just saw a number jump from 130 -> 175, I could see more details, more effects etc.

Again, upgrade time rolled around and I got a 4870 X2 and I could finally max it out but at pretty poor framerates. I got the Q9650 and overclocked it to 3.9GHz and again saw some improvements in the game. It really made my upgrade experience a joy and a pleasure. I wasn't just upgrading my hardware and seeing framerates going up and up, I was actually seeing a better game each time.

It seems to me that a lot of people hate a game if they can't run it maxed out on release day but that, to me, is great. It means I can revisit the game with a better setup in the future and experience a better looking game each time. If Battlefield 3 does this for me then I'm going to love it.

Anyone else feel this way?

You can buy a GTX 460 open box off Newegg for around $120 when they are in stock which is regularly.
Then again, looking at your monitor, you should upgrade that first.

A 19" widescreen for $100 would improve your experience greatly, then get the GTX 460.

Because it's coded like crap. Game was released in 2007.
No reason for PC's 4 years later to 'finally be playable' at max AA/AF and settings other than it wasn't correctly optimized.

In that case, the 5770 would be fine. Try your best to get a reference model or one that you can overclock because they do pretty well.

What are some alternative to an HD5770? for my Native res, that is. Getting ready for this Crysis 2 and BFBC3 stuff. 5770 is a bit heavy on my budget.

I saw many movies from BF3 and I think it looks stunning. Effects are great, dust, shadows, even option that we will be able to destroy huge buildings. It's something I didn't saw in any other FPS i think... No! I'M SURE it will be even something more than Crysis of 2011

There's only one truth in this world. FPS games was made for PC, and they should stay only on PC. Sorry console guys, but playing FPS on console is just like trying to replace car's wheels by squares. Mouse+Keyboard=FTW!
