    I am and things are smooth at ultra, but I do get some dips. I imagine some of it is due to drivers and an unfinished beta code, a lot of it seems to be server lag.

    I can't seem to join any games... I boot up the game, it opens my web browser and I go to choose a server. I choose one and it launches the game, I switch to the game it shows the map logo i guess you could call it, then it goes to a black screen where you think it's going to flash to the load out screen but it doesn't. It just locks up my entire computer and I have to click the restart button! Anyone else have this problem?

    OK I'm hoping this is just a low. I'm feeling gaming cost me to much money
    and tired of getting my ass kicked. Maybe it the 15 or 20 bee stings I got
    yesterday when attacked by yellowjacket hive. Twice in one lifetime is to many.
    I'll enjoy the campaign in BF3 , bit if I can't hold a .50 at least I'm done spending
    dollars for something I suck at. Anyone else ever get to this point or I'm I just getting to old ?

    I really sucked for a long while there and really didn't play online shooters for years (pretty much missed BF2 during it's heyday) but then I stopped being drunk which helped a ton. I'm still not relatively great but can compete and have fun these days.

    Not claiming it's the Bud Light's fault for you but it definitely wasn't age in my case and I kinda figured it was for awhile. Of course, I also have two good eyes.

    Well funny you said budlight because that is what I drink and more isn't gonna help. As far as age at 53 I doubt I will have a sudden increase in my hand eye coordination. Thanks though maybe I'm just feeling funky. I have a lot of other things I like to do and need to prioritize.

    Yeah I fell through the ground quite a few times. Only happened in the first stage though, before going underground. I also get a strange artifact that I only have experienced with BC2 when I had dual 4890's. The entire screen will flash purple for a split second... :twitch:

    As for snipers....they are a pain in the ass....so i reciprocate by SVD'in their ass with iron sights. :cool:

    Keep in mind though, aiming with a controller is enough to make me throw my PS3 out the window.

    Sorta . . . I have crossfire 5850 (both flashed with a XFX XXX 5870) at 900/1250 and I get over 90-120 in Metro and 45-60 outside of Metro. On Caspian it goes from 35-50, but its BETA. I get random kicks, stuttering, and MAJOR FPS droppage! I would be at 60 FPS, and dip to 17 FPS. DICE has to fix these errors. It's seems more or less 58xx series that are getting these issues...

    However, I do have everything on Ultra. Game looks good. The SFX are amazing

    BF1942, BF:V, BF2, BF2:SF, BF2142 were never on the console.....and they made BF3 for the PC and ported down to the console.....watered down. Could care less about BF on the console. DICE seems to agree.

    BF2142 was launched in late 2006 and its expansion in 2007. The Xbox360 was launched in 2005.

    You jelly?

    If it changed as much as you say it has then why did DICE port down to the console? Why did Carmack say it was a huge mistake to develop for the console first and port up and that next time for the good of the industry hes going to port down.

    Listen the developers are waking up to the fact consoles are starving innovation. Get used to it. PC gaming is just as big as it ever was. Maybe bigger. You are stuck with hardware dated from 2003.....and will have to deal with it even longer. Consoles better change generations and fast because innovation won't wait on them anymore. You are gonna have to get used to PC table scraps......like BF3.

    BF2 came out in 2005, 2011 will see BF3. That's a pretty good stretch between title releases. No, there won't be a BF4 next year and that's fine with me.

    Console vs PC is a stale debate. I could care less.

    listen, Carmack shipping Rage in the condition it's in after 6 years of development should be ashamed of himself.
