Have there been any releases or leaks as to what requirements our systems will need to run the upcoming BF3?
currently, i have;
AMD phenom x4 955 3.2Ghz (OC to 3.6ghz)
ASRock 880G Extreme 3 motherboard
Corsair 1333mhz DDR3 4x2 Gb
XFX 750W Power Supply
XFX 5770 Graphics

Any ideas if i could run it?
or would it be an idea to upgrade?

you should be able to run it fine on medium as the pc is the lead platform the recommended requirements may be slightly higher. minimum recommended will likely to be a dual core @3ghz and an 88gt. or there abouts.

You should have no problems running the game. The minimum and recommended specs haven't been mentioned or leaked yet, but hopefully DICE reveals this info, as well as some info about multiplayer, during E3.

Lets all pray they don't pull a Crytek and really do keep the PC as the lead platform. I just have a sinking feeling BF3 will be consolzied beyond belief. What financial incentive would a developer have to make the PC the lead platform when they can make tons of $$$ selling a sub par console turd. (Black Ops, Crysis 2).

I do really hope it runs well on a PC, but if you have hardware equal to or better than a console you should be fine. Just look at Crysis 2, its not breaking any new graphics territory.

Consolized, a new word for the Collins English Dictionary, Definition = The Bastardisation of a game once intended for PC only to be completely ruined for the sake of the console masses and the example of hate that it there fore conjures of all the PC community.

I think people are getting worried about the eyecandy in that video for BF3. As far as graphics goes, DICE is said to be developing it for PC first, then giving the crapped out version to consoles. A good example of this is Metro 2033. The game looks amazing maxed out on PC imo, but they also released a console version, which is basically DX9 on low settings. My pont is, im sure you will be able to run it fine at least on settings high enough to have some form of eyecandy. Lets just hope it isnt like Crysis 2 and actually uses our computers for what they can do.
