heyya guys,
BF3 is about to release on PC.
I had a question. My system is: A mid-range as follows

Intel Core i7 870 2.93ghz
Gigabyte GA P55 UD3L motherboard
XFX Nvidia Geforce GTX 460 1GB
Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit)
22" Dell Full HD LED (1920X1080)

Right now, I am able to run all the games on full hd resolutions on maxed out settings.
But recently I read BF3 minimum system requirements, and I doubt that i'll be able to run BF3 maxed out on my current system.
Even Crysis 2 was silky smooth on DX11, all the settings on enthusiast...
Any hardware upgrade suggested will be welcome...

What is your opinion? Your reply will be appreciated.

Better wait for the game to come out and check some benchies
But with your current setup,I think you can run it fine on medium settings

I am surprised you are running all games on max? What resolution are we talking about here? I had GTX 460 last year and even at that time most games wouldn't run 1080p on max.

Currently have GTX560Ti and it is a sweet card. Run them in SLI and you have more power than GTX580.

Back to your point.. If you want card for most games to run max-med settings for next year, look at GTX 560 Ti (non Ti $15 cheaper but you'll loose a bit on performance too, it's like your GTX 460 on the paper).

Personal recommendation - hold on to your config until spring and upgrade the whole config. You won't loose too much playing on med settings at 720p.

Yes, all the games running at max, on stock hardware, on 1920X1080.
Right now I was thinking of getting GTX 570/580. But the thing is, my board supports CrossfireX, and not SLI. I was unaware of that when i bought GTX 460.

Will it be a wise decision to move towards ATI, or nvidia would be preferable??

what series of Cooler Master ?
Cooler Master GX and ModXtream series have awful reviews when using them in CF/SLI so if you're going to CF/SLI you'll need to get a better PSU

a GTX 570/80 HD 6950/70 will be able to max out the BF3, and if i were you i would stick with GTX 460 until the HD 7K series come out, the new XDR2 technology is said to be twice faster than GDDR5, besides the 28nm process which means less power consumption and less heat, 1 GHz GPU frequency... a high end GPU such as HD 7950 is said to be performing similar to HD 6990
