Yeah thats enough, But dont go less than 3.2GB ram.. I would advise you to upgrade to 4GB or 8GB. Nowadays 4GB is $25 and 8GB $40 and if you want overkill you can find 12GB ram for less than $80! But all in all 3.25GB ram should be enough.
Thanks to you two!
Btw johnny I have W7 32-bit so I can't get more than 3.25GB of ram... I know it suck but I dont want to buy a new motherboard+processor,ect just to get the 64bit version.
Does this Sandforce2 really change something? I want to be sure it would affect my gaming experience because I know it's kinda expensive..
I am running BF3 on ULTRA for all settings except anti-aliasing (2x, other type off), (and aniso set to 8x) with the following system:
AMD Athlon II X4 (2.6 GHz)
ASUS M4A785TD-V Evo (newest BIOS installed)
8GB DDR3 1600 running at only 1333
AMD / ATI 6750 (1GB vid ram)
7200RPM 320GB hdd / sata II
screen res is 30" monitor 2650 x 1600 / fullscreen mode, sync'd frames
I have no noticeable slow-downs / no lagging.
Tonight I installed more ram to make my 8GB. I had 4GB and could not run ULTRA texture res. and multiplayer was unplayable. The game is using 1.5GB of ram (at most). The game combined with other things going on in the background / W7 64bit and random drivers (no other major applications running) is using 65% of my newly installed 8 GB.
I wouldn't say I have a state of the art machine and I don't have it OC'd at all. Game is great / looks unbelievable.
INSTALL MORE RAM! (and don't necessarily get crazy w/ top of the line gfx cards and OCing)
My motherboard support only 4 gig so I can't really upgrade for more.. (My budget is pretty low these days so I'm not planning getting a new one lol) But I guess if you tell the game (I would run it at high setting not ultra) is only 1.5gig of ram + origin + browser I think 4 gig should be ok... No?
