Can I run BF3?

Hello, I am wondering if I will be able to play bf3 on this setup. I am going to buy it today.

I have an Intel i5-2380P with 3.1 GHz of processing power, connected to an ASRock H61M/U3S3. On the motherboard I have 8 GB of memory from G.SKILL, and an ASUS ENGT430 with 1 gb of DDR3 memory.
Can anyone tell me if this will work?

  1. I'm going to say yes, but very low settings

    430 is below minimum system requirements

    BF3 minimum GPU specified is 8800GT

    thank you for telling me that, can you tell me if Nvida GeForce GT 520 with 1 GB of DDR3 would run better

    No it would not. You should get a GTX 560 Ti if you want to be running this game on ULTRA at 1920x1080. For medium to high just get a GTX 550 Ti.
  4. Thebester, what resolution are you going to be playing at?
  5. Yes you can play BF3. Now it has new requirement. BF3 is minimum specified.

    Yes, it would run. But obviously not well.
    And what do you mean by new requirement?
    The game requires at least an 8800GT. A GT430, falls below the minimum specs.

    I would read the reviews before paying $59.99 plus tax. I've read that the multiplayer area are full of hackers. You might as well play off-line against bots without being hadicapped. Don't be tempted just because the game looks "beautiful." I'd wait when it get really cheap. I'd pay less than $20 for this game. The reviews also stated that the single player is not worth playing as well. Do the research.
