I Just Bought a New PC for Battlefield 3. What About You?

Kotaku: Some people think this year's big PC releases, particularly the "next gen" Battlefield 3, will spur around $1 billion in sales of PC hardware.

Having just spent $1300 on PC hardware, I can see why.

Nope, I've had my rig built since 09 and it's still far beyond what I need for BF3 on ultra. Me Gusta.

Yeah me too, I've had a 920 @ 3.4 since 09 and a 560 GTX, even with that, i know I won't have to upgrade till 2016.

NuclearDuke2126d ago

You won't play Ultra with a single 560GTX.

Theo11302126d ago

I misread that part, but I don't really care about that, I just want to play.

My bro did, and he never spoils himself. Runs beta great, he's a happy chap

1 billion?????? Thats a 3 month period for one graphics card company alone

here's nvidia q1 from 2010, expect 2011 quaters to be even better!

Now add in the ram companies, the case companies, cpu's, power supplies, liquid cooling, neon lights, fans, hard drives, ssd, ect ect....you're talking a 40 billion dollar a year indistry just for pc gaming related hardware.....before all the stuff mom's and dads and regular people buy.

heck,.....look at just last years add in graphic chip market;

you got over 17 billion just in add on gpu boards, this ain't petty console money here son, this is real money!!!

and 1300 is a lot and not nessasary for bf3 in ultra unless your doing 3 monitor crazy resolutions!

*edit, just read the australia thing at the bottom, yeah, that rig in the states could be had for about $600-800, kudos to you on your new build, but your revenue facts for hardware are WAYYYYY off! Maybe the fact you saw means 1 billion more than last year, not sure??

You want the best version of the game looking its best then you need to invest. If you can't afford it, like me, then you hope that the console version provides a capable alternative.

However, I will pick this game up after Xmas. My gaming budget has been spent for weeks now with Dark Souls, Batman, Uncharted and Skyrim. Something had to give and this time round it was Battlefield.
