Building a Battlefield 3 PC: A Console Gamer's Story

GameSpot - Not so long ago, I sat down to play Battlefield 3 for the first time. I was nervous. After all the hype, the anticipation, the promise that this was to be one of the most ambitious and beautiful shooters of all time, it couldn't possibly live up to the hype. I was right. As the game opened up before me, the truth became clear. The teaser trailers I had once coveted were a lie--at least for me, a humble console gamer. As stunning as trailers like the one below were, they all featured footage from the PC version of the game. The Xbox 360 version in front of me was a poor imitation, rendered with all the elegance of a ham-fisted crayon sketch. I knew what I had to do. Something that I had said to myself I would never do again: build a kick-ass gaming PC.

I've been using an Intel Core 2 Quad core for almost 3 years... this is the longest I have gone without upgrading my platform, but the time is approaching to upgrade my platform from LGA 775 to LGA 2011.

PCI Express 3.0 and memory up to 64GB is damn good reason.
Especially since my Adobe and web development programs keep eating up the 8GB I have.

Save your money get 1155 not new chipset not needed yet. As for adobe just add more ram 16gb should be plenty.

xer02450d ago

There aren't that many socket 1155 boards with PCI Express 3.0 yet.

I guess I'll wait for the dust to settle with the LGA 2011 launch this month... and upgrade early next year?
