    If a 560 can run it on high settings then my 5850 OC will be fine. Ill just have to run it at a lower res thats all.......maybe.

    I am very interested to see your results when the game actually launches. I think you'll be fine too(as I said when we discussed this days ago), but it's very curious that the 6950 is the "recommended" card.

    Nah, both cards offer the same amount of vram bandwith so resolution won't matter. The one thing we all need to hope for is that Nvidia didn't get their hands into over tesselating things that don't need tesselation a.k.a. the Crysis 2 DX11 debacle. If you don't know what that is, basically it nerfed performance for all video cards by (for the most part) having a vast tesselated ocean being rendered underneath all of the textures whether you see the ocean or not. Dick move, at least it was done with a crap game.

    Speaking of which what was the voltage you gave me last time for my 5850? I have the clocks down but I forgot the damn volts

    Not likely considering ATI also had a hand in development of it.

    Sad that I can remember how to overclock YOUR computer, but you do not! I think that reflects on myself, not you. ;) :laugh:

    Emails will be sent out after 8 am eastern time Sept27,Same with around the world.


    Read this from Zhintos

    Hello Folks,

    I have only just got off the line with EA in terms of getting some response to you guys about your Early Access Emails!
    I've been receiving quite a bit of emails/private messages in regarding this lately, and the best response we can give right now is as follows.

    Electronic Arts will be sending emails out with redeemable codes inside them, you will then go to this site and redeem the code in order to get access to the Early Access promotion.
    Electronic Arts have already started sending out those emails, however most of you will start receiving your emails by midnight tonight(09/26/2011) in order for you to have them in your inbox by tomorrow morning (Tuesday 09/27/2011).

    What are the requirements in order to receive Early Access?
    In order to qualify for Early Access you must have played Medal of Honor Tier 1 or Limited Edition online and redeemed your Online Pass, or you must have pre-ordered Battlefield 3 via Origin before the 25th of September.

    When will I get my email?
    Sometime between Midnight tonight(most likely PST timezone) to the early hours of Tuesday morning.

    What is in this email?
    Information on how to redeem your key, the redemption key, and also a link to the redemption website.

    Which email is this being sent to?
    The email will most likely be sent to your EA Master Account's email, if you have linked your gamer profiles to that email.

    Misc..
    Emails will be sent to individuals who participated in the Medal of Honor T1/Limited Edition (Xbox 360/PC) promotion with information on how to redeem.

    Emails will also be sent to the Origin BF3 Preorder users via their email, with information regarding that.
    You will also receive a email if you purchased Medal of Honor via Steam prior to the 25th of July. Your key will be within your Steam Library -- right click Medal of Honor and then click "CD Keys" your code will be listed within that.

    Currently I have no details as to wether Playstation 3 users will receive a email, you should see Battlefield 3 automatically popup within the PSN Network by tomorrow! (If you qualified, by the above).

    __________________
    Hope this helps some of your questions, if any more please don't hesitate to make a thread or private message any of the Battlefield moderators, and we should be able to provide information -- if we have it

    PS; As always don't forget to keep an eye on Demize99's twitter, Zh1nt0's twitter, Our Battlefield Facebook page and also to reread the FAQ visit here.

    Why are you people waiting for an e-mail? The key is already in your account as part of BF3 Limited Edition. Once "released", the beta will just show up as a game you own to install. You install it and play. Its that simple.

    Ha! I'm torn as to what that means. On one hand, the idea of a ferret on cocaine leads to images of something super fast and erratic, the proverbial "wham bam, thank you 'mam. On the other hand, my past personal experiences with cocaine is that it lets you pound for hours, especially after a bunch of booze. Such a strange choice of words.

    Pretty sure they already stated a few days ago that the beta will not be going up at 12:01am, just incase it came down to this time and people were upset about it, so they wouldn't have to say it now.

    See above.

    Agreed, just was saying I was surprised there is an adjustable setting for it.

    I got a code from an inside source. :)

    What I learned so far:
    Alternate soldier names is not in the beta, as far as I can tell.
    Binding stuff to the mouse buttons is not working. Dammnit.
    +You still have to join a server to get to the config menus.

    +There are only around 60 people showing in the browser at this time.
    +There are three severs showing in the browser hosting Caspian Border 64 player conquest. They are password protected.

    + Going prone and crawling forward I end up glitching under the ground texture quite often. I hope the new Catalyst drivers fix this.
    + Still don't see a way to quit without spawning back in to the game.
    + There doesn't seem to be a console on the beta. I see no key bind for it.

    Let me know what questions you have, I'll try to answer.
