I'm trying to help a friend find a video card for BF3 too, and he only has a 450w power supply, which only has one 6pin connector. Think I'm going to have to find him both a power supply and card.

Hey AphexDreamer, I graduated from UH before it turned into a Tier 1 school. I know the tuition keep going up and up each semester in prep for transitioning to Tier 1, has it jumped up a lot since then?

What resolution does he game at?

Recommandations have always been weird.
Rest of your system has about 83 watts of power to use when gaming. You CPU will use all of that and more alone easily. You will blow out your PSU with a 6850.

Actually, I have used an inadequate PSU with my GPU and the GPU was blown out, not the PSU. Money will be wasted somewhere.

He usually plays at 1080, or at least thats what his monitor can do. I know he has to run BC2 in DX9 to get good frame rates, i'm not sure if he lowers his rez too.

I was not part of the alpha but I received a choice of 3 games for preordering early. I received the email on august 12 and my choices are dead space 2, medal of honor, and mass effect 2. I have not used my code yet and don't know if it will work since I cancelled my pre order from origin.

Grab a PSU upgrade. any decent 550-650w and a GTX470 or 570. i think those cards should perform fairly well so long as hes got a decent CPU

A 6850 with a better psu you do just fine. A 470 or 570 would be great but you do not need to go that high. You can pick up a GTX 460 at newegg recertified for $110-$100.00. I have friends that did the alpha with me and they ran a 5770 at the basic settings and the alpha looked great.

Hard to find 470s now. Definitely need a GTX 570 class card to run BF3 acceptably. PSU upgrade goes without saying. This game will only look good on a beast rig like mine.

Great meaning 30 FPS on basic settings? Different strokes for different folks. Also, the alpha had environment destruction off and was DX9. The real game will be far more system resource demanding than the alpha was.

I don't know about the environment destruction part.... I destroyed a few trees and made holes in the ground. I was also in a building that had it's walls blown out by an RPG. I am also fairly certain it was not in DX9 as the GAME DOES NOT SUPPORT DX9. If it did, people running Windows XP could play the game.

Listen the guy stated he plays @1280x1024 and your saying he needs a 570. Also environment destruction was not off when I was playing it in the alpha. I had no trouble dropping trees fences and what not. I believe is was in DX10 only.

MINIMUM

Hard Drive Space: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version
OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7
Processor: Core 2 Duo @ 2.0GHzRAM2GB
Video Card: DirectX 10 or 11 compatible Nvidia or AMD ATI card

RECOMMENDED

Hard Drive Space: 15 GB for disc version or 10 GB for digital version

I dont see how we are out of our mind for making this suggestion.

Everyone knows the game is going to be a beast to run.

I think i read somewhere that a guy ran the beta on a 6570 (or lower)

you asked for recommendations. and its what we are giving. the 6570 should give you some good frames with all the eye candy turned off and resolution turned right down. maybe it would be better we recommend that instead???

ROFL, I just answered this in my previous post. You should meet U2K, you want to game just like him. The PC demo of BF3 ran on a single 580. BFBC2 is no slouch and this will be much more demanding. I wonder how this will run on my Commodore 64? It can't be that tough, can it? I'm out of my mind LOLOLOLOLOLOL.

Got me Dead Space 2 for free. Just contacted support and told them I got the game before the 19th but never got my Free Dead Space 2 :)

In America, all the e-tail stores are drying up of 470s. Can't say for brick and mortar.

BFBC2 is no slouch and this will be much more demanding.
bfbc2 ran great on a single 5850. i stopped using crossfire as it was unnecessary.

again , recommended specs: GeForce GTX 460, Radeon Radeon HD 6850

recommended means it should max it. if not, very close. telling someone they need to spend an extra $160 to match a "beast" like yours in order to play at high in bf3 is likely untrue, either way - we are both GUESSING. stop pushing your stance like it's fact, you know no more than the rest of us.

Yup, and you also said the environment destruction was off which was wrong. I have no troubles running it and I did not ask for suggestions but your telling this guy he needs a 570 to play when he really doesn't. I am saying a 460 or 6850 will run it just fine for him and not cost him a ton of cash.

Maybe you did not notice the destruction environment being on because your beast of a machine could not handle it. :laugh:

I thought the 48 hour window was the preorder "closed" open beta access prior to the official
"open" beta. I will be stocking up on Bawls !!!
I thought it was a 48hr beta at first. but it seems like its gonna be a week (people with pre-orders get to access the beta 48hrs early)

We've already heard about how lengthy the unlock system is, but here's the official word from DICE on expected length to unlock everything (not 90% of things, but 100%)

we're aiming for a full year of play for those who really want to unlock everything. - Patrick Bach

The 48 hours you are thinking of is the length of the closed beta. For those that got Medal of Honor beta access and such. After that it goes open beta.
