Re: Battlefield 3

It will run it on quite high settings, probably not maximum though.

The HD5770 is a good mid-range gaming card, but it can't compete with the more expensive high-end cards that are used for maxxing out modern game's graphics settings at high resolutions and high framerates.

You'll be getting a good fast quad-core CPU, and more than enough RAM and hard drive space. You could halve those figures (4gb RAM, 512mb HDD) and still have a good gaming computer.

Re: Battlefield 3

What's your total budget and what country are you in?

The official system requirements for Battlefield 3 have not been released yet, but I expect a card like the 5770 will be somewhere between the minimum and recommended, so good enough to play at decent settings, but not maximum.

If you're buying a new computer specifically for games like Battlefield 3, you might want to wait until the requirements are announced and then decide which parts to choose.

Re: Battlefield 3

CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra 2062, Phenom II X4 965 (3.4GHz), 4GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Radeon HD6870 1GB - $950 - Newegg.com

It has a faster graphics card, better motherboard and 4gb RAM instead of 8, but you won't need 8gb for any games.

Battlefield 3 is due for release around the end of 2011, by which time you'll be able to get a faster computer for less money.

Re: Battlefield 3

It won't need more than 4gb unless you're using the computer for advanced image/video editing or 3D model rendering. If you want to add more RAM, you can buy it separately at a later date.

the 5770 and the GTX 460 are good to run the game on high
but that depends on the resolution
I can safely say that the both cards should run the game on 1920 x 1080 on high settings above 30 fps
so wait and don't upgrade now, when the game is released, try it see how it performs and then decide if you need to upgrade or no
