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.
I am going by what I read of others that played alpha. They were shooting the buildings with RPGs in the YouTube videos and nothing destructed. This isn't the final build and alpha didn't have all the features implemented giving credence to the report of it being DX9 only.

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.

Here are the mins and max's for the game.Don't let him blow smoke up your ass .

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
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD CPURAM 4GB
Video Card: DirectX 11 Nvidia or AMD ATI card, GeForce GTX 460, Radeon Radeon HD 6850
ROFL, you are quoting manufacturer recommended specs! Games ALWAYS require more than the recommended to run perfectly. I stated "Definitely need a GTX 570 class card to run BF3 acceptably." If you want to run BF3 UNACCEPTABLY, by all means feel free to do so. Obviously the money you throw at your GPU, the more returns you will see when you game.

U2K is more forward thinking than you and everyone knows what he runs. I know U2K personally, I should know.

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???
This guy is sooper cool! PC fanboy and wants to indoctrinate us to play @ 30 FPS on lowest settings like him. If it will run that fast. Firing up the old Commodore 64 now...

If it takes a 6570 to run the game well then i have seriously overspec'd just for this game.

i just think you guys should stop talking out of your @$$es. you know no more than the rest of us on the actual required specs.

the most you can honestly say is "the beta ran good on X , but you will have to wait and see"

any further extrapolation is ingenuous on your part, and your attitudes make it contemptible.

Theres a big difference between min and max settings, expect to see people playing with 6570's, just don't expect them to be playing maxed out.

Doubtful, he said lower resolution. The Alpha didn't have tesselization, and BC2 doesn't either. And A friend plays BC2 on Med/High settings with an AII Tricore + 5770 without much of an issue at 1920x1080. Marineborn with his i7 laptop and a 5870 (equiv of 5770 for desktops) also played BC2 at the same settings and resolution. Drop the resolution and both of those would have played at high settings probably at 1440x900.

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.

What I did.

In America, all the e-tail stores are drying up of 470s. Can't say for brick and mortar.
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???
I believe the OP (of the question)stated it all right there. He was running at 1280x1024. Not 1080p aka 1920x1080. The lower the resolution, the lower the strain on the card and thusly the less powerful the card needs to be to perform. As long as he can run with 4x MSAA and 4x AS; he should be fine with something like.... a 5770 or 5850. Something along those lines should be fine. Not all of us are trying to stress test the c-r-a-p out of our machines. Yes.... people want it to look pretty, but no one should sacrifice performance for beauty. If the ammunition manufacturers skimped on performance and ballistics and instead focused on making the ammunition look "pretty" they would not be in business for long. So, the best thing to do in this situation is to focus on making the game perform at optimum for his specs while saving him money at this time. If he like I can wait for the AMD 7xxx series to release, he can make the jump to a more power efficient and performance busting GPU chipset and bypass the 6xxx series altogether. ( I have to thank all my TS3 TPU buddies for advising me on this....Mailman, Erocker, Crazy, Laughingman, ......)

well.....Like one of the devs said during one of the interviews i watched on youtube (cant remember which one)

when the issue of hardware was brought up. I remember him saying that the game would scale better for those with better hardware.

So we shall see

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.
One of my GTX 470s is more powerful than a HD 5850 and I need BOTH to keep BFBC2 locked @ 60 FPS @ max settings with AA on. Refer to my avatar and signature, I know what I am talking about when I talk about BFBC2, you are ignorant not me, noob. My PC is still the most powerful one in this thread OVERALL, even after a year. Definitely a beast whether you recognize or not.

Recommended means NOTHING. Everyone knows a 460 won't max this game, not even close. Maxing means constant 60 FPS on ultra settings w/AA. You are thinking maxing means 30 FPS on lowest settings like sh!t PC fanboy. I said get a 570 class card for it to look good. I didn't say YOU can or will afford one. I am stating the FACTS of what this game requires to run optimally. When you play and expect BF3 to be locked @ 60 FPS on ultra w/AA on with one HD 5850, you will see I am right. Do you really need to play it to understand that?

I am "GUESSING" this game is a beast? They ran the demo on a GTX 580 to show off they had a GTX 580 to run it on? Do the photo realistic graphics look to you like a single GTX 460 will run this flawlessly @ REAL max settings, not idealistic sh!t PC fanboy settings?

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 didn't say I played the alpha, I said I am going by other's reports. Stop quoting me like I stated I played, I never did any such thing. Everything I stated about the alpha comes from others that played it and from watching the YouTube videos.

A GTX 460 will run this game VERY WELL @ 1280x1024. Gaming at that res especially for the GRAPHICAL TOUR DE FORCE BF3 is, is NOT a vast majority of people's definition of running this game "acceptably". A single GTX 460 WILL NOT run this game well for the 1080P folks, that is what I am talking about.

He mad. Mostly misconstruing what I am stating in this thread to fit his world view of optimal sh!t PC gaming.

Hmmm. define Unacceptable Game Performance. Are you saying that only your requirements are acceptable? Cause that is exactly what it sounds like. And 30 FPS is perfectly fine as that is the speed that all Movies run at (actually it is more like 29.3 something but that is a moot point)If a Movie looks smooth then you should be fine at 30FPS. If you must have 60+ stick with COD and leave the tactical realism to us. Oh that's right, if you turn off everything that DICE enabled in BF3 we could all run at 60FPS.

I am "GUESSING" this game is a beast? They ran the demo on a GTX 580 to show off they had a GTX 580 to run it on? Do the photo realistic graphics look to you like a single GTX 460 will run this flawlessly @ REAL max settings, not idealistic sh!t PC fanboy settings?
seriously (this argument aside - and no, i still don't agree with you) you need some anger management. I have no interest in debating this with you - and not because you have wowed me with your intellectual might - but quite the opposite.

you are abrasive and insulting, and it's simply not worth my time and effort to try and converse with you. good day sir.

Are the trying to say the Xbox 360 controller will not work on PC?
if you mean because it's missing from specs, that really says nothing. peripheral accessories in pre-release specs? not often...

Not sure, my guess you will be able to. Hopefully you'll find out during beta if you can or can't.

I just hope that full joystick compatibility will be on. I want to be able to fly via stick.

One of my GTX 470s is more powerful than a HD 5850 and I need BOTH to keep BFBC2 locked @ 60 FPS @ max settings with AA on. Refer to my avatar and signature, I know what I am talking about when I talk about BFBC2, you are ignorant not me, noob. My PC is still the most powerful one in this thread OVERALL, even after a year. Definitely a beast whether you recognize or not.

Recommended means NOTHING. Everyone knows a 460 won't max this game, not even close. Maxing means constant 60 FPS on ultra settings w/AA. You are thinking maxing means 30 FPS on lowest settings like sh!t PC fanboy. I said get a 570 class card for it to look good. I didn't say YOU can or will afford one. I am stating the FACTS of what this game requires to run optimally. When you play and expect BF3 to be locked @ 60 FPS on ultra w/AA on with one HD 5850, you will see I am right. Do you really need to play it to understand that?
First, step off the high horse, you are killing the clubhouse mood. Your computer is nice, but with no overclocking, you probably aren't the fastest. 5850's trade blows with 470's, I wouldn't call either one the victor, and previously I had run dual 5850's (OC'd) and my 6 core at 3.9ghz, which would trump your setup, either way thats besides the point. (And Freedom Eclipses computer crushes just about anyones here)

If you are playing at 1920x1080, playing with Max AA just isn't needed. Unless you plan to stop and enjoy the scenery, I honestly usually don't notice AA at all unless I stop moving, I try and keep it at 2x - 4x, just incase I stop, beyond that with as high of a res as 1920x1080, you just don't need max, at 1280x1024, thats another story.

No one here is talking about playing maxed out (mostly because it's pointless to run AA that high). So I'm not sure why you keep bringing it up, or why you keep insulting people and bragging about your setup. Calm down, it's a clubhouse, have some fun.

Don't think it is, like I stated above, highest AA isn't needed. And HBAO on vs off is hardly noticeable.

I am actually annoyed at this. The recommended was previously a 6850, I bought a 5870 since it was a good deal and obviously faster, now they have changed the recommended to a 6950?!

Damnit I was expecting to be able to run this game well with a new card now I either have to buy another for cross fire or sell it and upgrade. I've only had it like 3 days.

No fair EA/DICE.

Usually going a step above recommended is best. I don't know what recommended is for BC2, but I'm assuming something like a 4870, or GTX280, but I wouldn't expect either of those to run with most things maxed out well in all situations. Digi's running a 5850 comfortably with BC2, and I made a switch to a 6950, but even with my card, I expect to probably drop my AA all the way down and a few other settings on BF3. With the price of a 6950 you can't go wrong either. You should still be able to run this game fine though, I wouldn't worry a ton.

How does Win 8 run, you run many games with it? I been tempted to give it a shot, but the beta just came out and I didn't want to lose any functionality that I have with Win 7 currently.
