Cool, I'm pretty well above the recommended and I might even have an SSD by then.

optimized. beautiful.

but will it be challenging, in the way only realism and depth can provide?

and will it be modable?

i think you know my stance on this.

Don't know your history with gaming or the series... but just FYI, the BF series has never been "realistic", but sure the hell a damn fun game.

BF3 is not a realistic tactical shooter, IMO, it's just a great tactical shooter... tactical being with basic military tactics and teamwork.... again, IMO.

LOL Beltfed, you know your going to do it.

I don't think I will be able to run MP on large servers with my system, I may upgrade in the new year or I may not, I am spending more time away from the pc, but I will get it coz it looks sooooooo good.

As soon as I saw this game and ArmA3 I set my mind to upgrade this summer.

Looks like all I need to do is upgrade to Windows 7.

CPU: Intel Q6600 Kentsfeld (running stock)
RAM: 6GB DDR2
HDD: WD 640GB (32MB cache)
VID: nVidia GTX460

I might...MIGHT...upgrade my CPU to a stronger LGA775 proc.

I'm hoping that my trusty ol' C2D E8500 3.4GHz with a GTX460 1gb will hold up okay. I want to delay any upgrade until about Summer next year, when Arma 3 comes out.

And btw...where have you guys been? I've been wanting to do some bc2 with you guys, but I'm relegated to playing with some unknown momos on random servers.
