BAttlefield 3, the most anticipated shooter this generation will be arrive tomorrow (for US at least)! Are your PC ready for it,guys? because as CVG review ( http://www.computerandvideogames.com/323587/reviewsbattlefield-3-review/?page=3 ) said :
"If you leave ideas like artistic direction and choreography at the door and simply concentrate on pure engine ability, textures, lighting, geometry etc. then the likes of Gears 3, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Rage and even Uncharted 3 are simply left gasping. It's a patent generational leap and the kind of experience you could easily imagine as a launch title on the next batch of consoles."
"After Frostbite 2, it'll be almost impossible to return to the staid, indestructible environs of rival shooters."
No matter if you are hardcore console fan, this game admittedly (on PC) will set a new benchmark for our next gen graphical fidelity! But, how about your PC ?? Is it enough to play it ??
1st, lets read system requirement for BF 3 :
Minimum System Requirements
Processor: 2 GHz Dual Core (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 2.7 GHz)
Memory: 2 GB
Hard Drive: 20 GB
Graphics card (NVIDIA): DirectX 10.0 compatible with 512 MB RAM
Recommended System Requirements
Processor: Quad-core CPU
Memory: 4 GB
Hard Drive: 20 GB
Graphics Card: DirectX 11 compatible with 1024 MB RAM
Personally, my PC is like this :
Processor : AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ (suddenly died yesterday, replace it with AMD Phenom II x4 840 arrive next week)
Memory: 4 GB DDR 2 Ram
Graphics Card: HIS Radeon HD 6850 1 GB
I'm pretty sure my PC would be enough to handle it at 1680 x 1050 @30+ FPS on ultra settings (CVG setup was similar and it run 30+ FPS).
What about yours?? What is your PC setup looks like? Do you think it will be enough to play BF3 at your targeted resolution and frame rate?
(Meanwhile, if you're console gamer that want to build your 1st PC rig to taste this game with your limited budget and dont want to spend thousands of dollar with branded PC, I'll reccomend you to read this http://www.hardware-revolution.com/budget-gaming-pc-q4-2010/ and don't be ashame to ask about anything here)
