Minimum specs for recording Battlefield 3 maxed???

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?

  1. Check youtube. (never thought I'd say that...) See who's making BF3 videos and what their rigs are. Buy something similar.
  2. what capture card do you have?
    None = real high end i7.
  3. 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.)
