    Tell them BF3 has Team Deathmatch so they can run around mindlessly as much as they want, and have more game beyond that.

    I'll probably jump on TDM when I'm the only one on. But rush when friends are on. Good balance so no matter what, i'm always playing.

    Word, I got one friend sold (on the Xbox version), but my best friend might see one of my PC's materialize on his desk for the PC version. These guys don't know what they're missing out on.

    I was playing some CoD:BO at my homies house on my lappy this weekend and a couple of guys chimed in "You playin' CoD on the computer? How come it looks so much better?"

    "Because it's on a fuggin' PC!" says I, "You think this looks good, you should see it on my main rig."

    Cause the XBox hardware is almost six years old? What is so hard to grasp about that? Seems like common sense to me. That's like wondering why a new car has more "pick up" than an older one.

    Its common sense to a guy like you, DannibusX or me. But to Joe Six-pack its all greek. PC's are for checking the mailz and facebooks. They really don't know what goes into making games. They just play them.

    They're not PC gamers. Well most of 'em aren't, their upgrades come in the form of a new console.

    Mine come in the form of a whether I decide to eat for a week or not.

    Riiight...but everything progresses and "new" stuff is always generally "better" be it a car, a TV an oven or a computer. Do they wonder why no one still develops new games for the original SNES too? And surely they've noticed how much better their Madden games look now and such.

    I prefer rush over conquest. But I would definitely choose conquest over tdm and the squad modes.

    But TDM is less of a drag when playing solo, don't really have to worry as much on team tactics.

    They don't think like that. They think in terms of generations of console. When the new Xbox comes out they'll get it because it'll have better graphics and more power. I don't think that most console players realize that games are any different from platform to platform.

    I'm guessing at 1920x1080... How close are the requirements to BBC2? I'm fine running BBC2 on high with 4x AA at 1360x768. I'm getting 60fps and drops down to 40ish at the lowest. Think I could do this with BF3? Or would I have to bring it down to med?

    I'm kinda sad about it.... I have like no time now, between enriched/academic classes and work I have no time to game, and when I do I'm too tired and just end up on reddit. I wish this came out in the summer!

    An education is more important then any game you will ever play.

    However,
    If its an educational game you be playing then thats a different story.

    People fail at life exams because they spend too much time glued to Warcraft or just computer games in general.

    Yeah, my sister is in her 3rd year of uni and she told me there are a few people in there that have failed from playing games too much. I still do just skip some homework sometimes.. gotta have fun sometimes ;) My math teacher doesn't even check it anyway.

    Well at least my Two 5850s is faster than 1 580 :p

    [​IMG]

    ..so maybe I can play at Max Settings

    of course BFBC2 is using the old Frostbite engine, hopefully this picture can be the same when BF3 comes out, (wishful thinking)

    Min frames are what matter, I ran dual 5850's and even with a single 6950 my min frames are higher than the dual setup.
