what are the minimum system specs for recording Battlefield 3 at 1080p maxed, while still maintaining 60fps average? i know the recomended system specs that the dev's posted, and i know that an i7 at 15billion Jiggawatts and 6 gtx690's will run anything i want 10 times over, but everyone has their budget. i've seen gameplay with an i5 2500k at 4ghz, and a gtx 680 can do it no problem. but is their anything cheaper i can use with the same result?

Check youtube. (never thought I'd say that...) See who's making BF3 videos and what their rigs are. Buy something similar.

None = real high end i7.

My AMD rig just recorded some maxed-out BF3 stuff, but it's running at 1680 x 1050 and the recordings themselves were "1/2 frame". (Half size)

My phenom X6 @ 3.4Ghz (with 2 560's in SLI) was able to play the game maxed out pretty well, but on a few occasions it struggled once I started capturing. My i7 rig did to,o but only about 2/10 of the times I started recording and the AMD rig bogged about 4/10 times.

The 1/2 frame video quality wasn't bad though:

This is how it turned out when I did the same experiment with Crysis 2:

(Neither one of the rigs had much trouble recording this one.)
