Sorry to burst your bubble, but you are going to waste money buying an 5770 by the time BF3 come out, it will be too outdated, i mean you re going to spend 100 $ on something that cant max out bf 3 and future games, i say u kill, rob, do anything to get enuff money to buy an 6870 or atleast an gtx 460 at all cost haha!!

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?
I actually feel the exact same way. I like having a powerful card, but really, OCing it and/or buying a second card gains nothing in most games. And most games look like they did before I upgraded. I really don't gain much anymore

HD5770s aren't that expensive.

I would get a more recent card for DX11 gaming though. The HD5770 doesn't seem to do that great in DX11 benchmarking compared to other cards. My crossfired HD5770s struggle with Dragon Age 2 maxxed out (with high res texture pack) in DX11 though that might be an issue with the game rather than the card.

I think the default graphic settings will be set on medium or high, But there will probably be ultra high graphic options and it will push your card to the limit.

Only time will tell. I will never buy blind again. I’m hoping everyone will take this stance and not pre-order until reviews are out (some reviews are not worth a grain of sand). Devs need to be forewarned.
