again , recommended specs: GeForce GTX 460, Radeon Radeon HD 6850
recommended means it should max it. if not, very close. telling someone they need to spend an extra $160 to match a "beast" like yours in order to play at high in bf3 is likely untrue, either way - we are both GUESSING. stop pushing your stance like it's fact, you know no more than the rest of us.
One of my GTX 470s is more powerful than a HD 5850 and I need BOTH to keep BFBC2 locked @ 60 FPS @ max settings with AA on. Refer to my avatar and signature, I know what I am talking about when I talk about BFBC2, you are ignorant not me, noob. My PC is still the most powerful one in this thread OVERALL
, even after a year. Definitely a beast whether you recognize or not.
Recommended means NOTHING. Everyone knows a 460 won't max this game, not even close. Maxing means constant 60 FPS on ultra settings w/AA. You are thinking maxing means 30 FPS on lowest settings like sh!t PC fanboy. I said get a 570 class card for it to look good. I didn't say YOU can or will afford one. I am stating the FACTS of what this game requires to run optimally. When you play and expect BF3 to be locked @ 60 FPS on ultra w/AA on with one HD 5850, you will see I am right. Do you really need to play it to understand that?
I am "GUESSING" this game is a beast? They ran the demo on a GTX 580 to show off they had a GTX 580 to run it on? Do the photo realistic graphics look to you like a single GTX 460 will run this flawlessly @ REAL max settings, not idealistic sh!t PC fanboy settings?

Maybe you did not notice the destruction environment being on because your beast of a machine could not handle it.
I didn't say I played the alpha, I said I am going by other's reports. Stop quoting me like I stated I played, I never did any such thing. Everything I stated about the alpha comes from others that played it and from watching the YouTube videos.
A GTX 460 will run this game VERY WELL @ 1280x1024. Gaming at that res especially for the GRAPHICAL TOUR DE FORCE BF3 is, is NOT
a vast majority of people's definition of running this game "acceptably". A single GTX 460 WILL NOT run this game well for the 1080P folks, that is what I am talking about.
He mad. Mostly misconstruing what I am stating in this thread to fit his world view of optimal sh!t PC gaming.
