'DICE and EA's exciting (and sure to be phenomenal) Battlefield 3 has taken another step towards release with Gamespot revealing the recommended specifications for the PC version of the game, which are as follows:'
Excellent article. My PC can't, but that's ok.
These system requirements are only a guess and EA has not confirmed what the actual requirements are. I'm guessing that if you can run BFBC2 well, you should be able to run BF3 OK.
I wish you all gamed on PC's it would be so fun and epic! lol I love my ps3 but PC is the definitive choice for BF3. JETS ON MINI COD SIZED MAPS FOR CONSOLES WILL NOT WORK. GO WITH PC OR GO HOME!!!! All a pc needs is a decent graphics card a good processor and a 500w+ power supply and your good to go! Any computer running vista or windows 7 supports dx11 and should have at least 4 - 8 gb of ram. You can use ps3 and 360 controllers! I dont use kb + m either I use the ps3 controller this is the best guide to show you pc gaming is not expensive http://i1002.photobucket.co...
@curtis_boy, I have a gaming PC so no need to sell me on the idea....lol. Already upgraded and ready to go. Sounds like we have similar tastes as I also own a PS3 as a "sidekick" to my PC gaming. I was just letting kthsdlr know that the requirements being shown have not been confirmed by EA and are only rumor at this point. It's my belief that if your current PC can play BFBC2, it should also be able to play BF3.
I should run BF3 no problem, even on highest settings. I'm excited for this one!
@curtis_boy: So, you're saying that I _can_ spend more than the $300 it would take me to buy an HD console in order to play it at even less than full specs? Why thank you! /s
Nope lol Niether my desktop or my laptop....haha these are mostly used for social and work wise..not for gaming.
Nope, that's why I'm getting the PS3 version and I'm perfectly fine with that. I enjoyed BC2 on console and hopefully I will enjoy this one as well.
Yea, mine neither. :( Hopefully i own PS3 also...
If it can't. It will!! To much to lose if I don't get it for pc.. Since they said it will be similar to BFBC2 requirements a lot of people should be ok..
Just finished building my new PC today with 8 GB RAM, an Intel quad core CPU, and a GeForce GTX 560. Should have no problem running BF3.
Not at all. Nice setup. Wish the 560 was available when I upgraded; I went with a dual 460 1gb SLI setup. 460's are great cards, though, plus I also got a great deal on the pair: $300. BF3 is going to be epic on PC!
560ti is a great card at a good price.
Didnt they say these requirements are fake?
most likely are, but it's feasible that the actual system requirements may be pretty similar to whats posted.
No, no it cannot.
i think my pc is up to the challenge and if it cant do what i expect it to, then its getting a new home at the trash dump. i7 9.20 cpu asus rog rampage 2 mobo ultra 1080 psu 12gb 1333 mhz patroit ram asus gtx 570 oc 1 tb hd
My PC can and will suck this game up and spit it out! Matter O fact, I can do this for the next 2-3 years at least.
i love building and upgrading :D and will be doing a full rebuild for this.
BF3, thank the Gaming Gods is DX10 DX11 ONLY! Bye bye DX9. Lots of budget priced GPU's out there and $450 can get you playing BF3.
