This is the first pc game I have been excited for in a long time and already saving up cash for a new video card and an SSD drive.

The graphics look amazing! I'm still enjoying BFBC2, though I think I may pick up BF3 when it comes out so I'm not so far behind everyone else when it comes to kit options.The timing of death, like the ending of a story, gives a changed meaning to what preceded it. -Mary Catherine Bateson-

DirectX 11 Rendering in Battlefield 3
Current desktop is:
Intel i7 3.0 Ghz
Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard
24 GB of Patriot Memory
Kingston SSD 64 GB HD
Samsung 1 TB HD 7200 RPM
Corsair 650W PSU
Acer 23 inch wide screen monitor
XFX Radeon HD 4350 512 MB video card
Ill be adding another SSD drive for raid 0, looking into SLI (after the game requirements come out) which will probably mean a new power supply too!

Nice rig GZ3... Only really need to upgrade one thing...
Just got my DDR3 RAM, waiting for the mobo to get here and i'm pretty much ready for this game..

It was built to do work with Vmware hence the crappy video card (and maxed out ram)

Holy AWESOME!!! Is it OCT yet?!?!

I hear ya, the graphics look almost movie like! Hopefully my rig will be able to handle the game, though I think my cpu runs at about 60% right now with BFBC2, the gpu seems to be okay.The timing of death, like the ending of a story, gives a changed meaning to what preceded it. -Mary Catherine Bateson-

The only thing that sucks about BF3 is that it won't run in XP. I'm still holding on to XP as long as I can. Looks like I'll have to create a separate partition for Win 7 for this game.

Well its more dealing with DirectX versions and the engine they are using. XP doesnt support DirectX 11, its time to move on Xp has had a good run
Plus how many of the newer video cards have xp drivers? Seems like a huge waste getting a dx11 card when you cant take advantage of it
