    A PC that exceeds the minimum PC specifications will have graphic advantages over the consoles. Better textures and advanced graphic effects. The better your PC, the greater the graphic advantages will be.

    The other main advantage is player counts. The PC supports up to 64 players in a match (conquest). The consoles support a maximum of 24 players. (More info on player counts)

    he was rough, but his point that i agree with is:
    you have crazy good computer. the fact that you are asking what benefits that will give you in bf3 is kinda silly. a lot.
    the fact that you would consider playing it on console with a pc like that, is scary.

    put it this way: more than you would ever get playing cod on pc vs console. bf3 was built for pc, scaled down to console, not the opposite as is so often.

    I would have probably made more sense if I had mentioned that I had so many close friends on PS3 that I would play with who can't run it on PC.

    Hey i'm thinking about using the 11.10 preview drivers.. Does anyone know where i can get the crossfire profile for 11.10? Can i use the "AMD Catalyst Application Profile - 11.8 CAP2" (from Guru3d.com)? on 11.10? and has anyone used them with crossfired 5850's? or crossfired anything?

    at this point i am really considering canceling my preorder coz what i have heard is that my computer can barely get 30 fps on LOW settings...that is unacceptable .i guess later today i am going find out the truth :(

    Sorry to say that you are probably right about your fps even on low settings, this game has some pretty intense recommended settings and idk if you could oc that processor much more either to try and hit them :(

    I'll probably buy the PS3 version then trade it in after a few days for the PC version while their is still a high trade in value.

    you will be lucky if they give you $25 and the console versions use the EA online pass.

    Bad Company 2 came out in March last year and by Christmas Steam had it on sale for $6.79.

    This is going to be much bigger than Bad Company 2 though, however playing the ps3 version until the PC version gets cheaper might have possibilities. Why can't the beta open now X_X

    Yeah the morning started with quite the troll session as is :( Glad that one is over.
    After reading these specs I am going to wait for the 7000 series and skip the 6900's.

    Yeah I messed around with that before, since it was only finding EU and JP servers for quick match, but it doesn't seem to effect that. But I switched it to search only for Conquest and a ton popped up and I got a bit of gametime in.

    I have a bit of the same scenario. But I will leave my console for exclusives to play with friends. I built my PC to game, and BF3 is going to be one of the best looking games on the market, at that point is when I tell my friends to suck it, I didn't build this comp to play Minecraft. Good thing that a few of my friends do have good PC's though, the rest I laugh at.

    Bad advice... BF3 isn't on Steam. And why buy the worse version of the game brand new, then buy the better version later? I would do it the other way around, but console games drop in price much slower, thats the only painful part.

    To be fair, the e8400 was released half a decade ago, and the 4850 is 3 years old as well. Granted at low settings the 4850 should be fine, but a dual core is really pushing it, but with your OC, it might be fine.

    I don't get the comparison. Crysis 1 was a beast that pushed PC's and still does. Crysis 2 was neutered at launch, put on consoles, and only had DX9. It moved backward, BF3 has moved forward and BC2 was already a great looking game. After playing Caspian Border, I can personally say... WOW, it is a nice leap forward and it looks stunning.

    you cant wait on console games kurgan dont you know lol FPS is dead after 6 months unless you pump out shit tons of overpriced DLC lol when its console anyway.

    as for AltecV1

    5 year old CPU + 4 year Old GPU nearly 5 years old from a performance standpoint

    so yea your complaining about low settings 30fps uh.. console is the same low settings 30fps your pc is capable of running BF3 at the same settings and its the same age as a console thats not that bad really

    and Low Settings actually looks pretty good, Medium settings on BF3 is roughly BC2 at Ultra so... in terms of graphics its not THAT bad. your also getting larger maps and more players same frame rate keep that in mind as well
