    Well I think your rig will be ok. I mean hell a 460 is brand new. You may not run it maxed but I think you will be fine. Is this game for you? Only you can answer that. However do yourself a favor and get Bad Company 2. If you enjoy that game then YES BF3 is for you.

    Color pallet has the blue hue, something that GR does.

    UI (also blue) was shown in those magazine scans a few weeks ago.

    Just saying it is reminiscent, not a rip off of GR.

    Thanks to me downloading via EA store before and just having my 42nd birthday:(
    I got a free £10 voucher and looking at the pre-order cost after the £10 voucher that would mean £29.99 :)
    Looking at everything else on their site for £10 it's all ...meh :wtf:

    So I'm thinking of going for the pre-order (and I maybe going SLI with another 460 ):D

    Yeah play BC2 now to better answer both those questions (and to practice/have some fun in the meantime). You could always fairly easily sell your 460 for like $125 or so in the fall and put that towards a new video card. You won't need a whole new rig; you have a quad.

    Speaking of practice and such I'm so glad for BC2 in this regard. I have played most of the popular shooters including Bf1942 and BF2 over the years but I was still really out of the loop in terms of the Battlefield series last few years and somehow hadn't even heard of BC2 until I saw the thread here. Thus, I started the game pretty "rusty" and it took me awhile to learn and get in the groove of this very modern multiplayer shooter (and my K/D etc has never really been able to recover).

    I will not have that problem with BF3. Even if I can't get in the beta which it's looking like I won't...

    Where did you hear of me :p I'm decent, I go by the same name on BC2, but I usually play odd hours, so add me up if you like.

    I've been checking the BC2 club house and other related threads way before the game was even released...I saw many people saying that you are good :p

    my ingame nickname is: Lt.John Rambo

    Anyway, I want to join a group of skilled players, maybe a BF3 clan or something :)

    USA is always the good guys, Russia, Arabs, and Germans always the bad guys. US is usually he market thats targeted, we get the first releases so to have us fighting the good side, is beneficial to them, don't forget though, most of Europe is in those wars too.

    yeah of course, my friend, but not being a Unitedstater myself, it ends up being a bit boring to always play as marine or whatever and never ever play as Dutch soldier (I am Dutch) or Spanish soldier (I live in Spain). That would be easy from a software point of view (different army skins, etc). But hey, we have all bend before to McDonalds, Coca Cola and all the pile of shit ideas you export. We are guilty.

    EA wants to get as many orders from the EA Store as possible. I expect it to show up on Steam about a month or two before release, just like Bad Company 2.

    I really want to get in on the beta, just don't want to have to buy Medal of Honor in order to do so.

    Yeah, like said, they are just selling their own stuff. They also said Vietnam would only be on the EA store for early access, but all of a sudden it appeared on Steam.

    Just wait, there will be keys, you will just have to look for them.

    Battlefield 3...YES.....Crysis 2.....defiantly NO

    I'm a hardcore Crysis fan, but after seeing how they "consolised" their game, I'm very disappointed Oh well, hopefully it will keep me busy until BF3 is out.
