    Well, I already knew I'd be running on low-med, with some tweakage. Still, interesting!

    I am good to go then seeing as my overclocked GTX460 is actually a GTX560 in sheeps clothing! I never use FSAA anyways so that will be forced to off in NVCP!

    High quality 60 or better here I come!!

    "High" seems to be the new "Low" and "Low" seems to be a blob of 32x32 textures. Or so the trend has been.
    Prepare to be disappointed. I doubt you'll get 60fps on high. Though, not as disappointed as AMD users will be when the drivers choke and die. Piss poor optimization and barely functional drivers here I come...

    Dude, I feel you. My friend has a 5970, which smokes my card spec wise, and yet he get almost the same performance in alot of games, but in a couple, he gets like 50% more...but still, AMD needs to clean up their act.

    Well with "Ultra" being the new standard "high" is the new medium now I guess. Me personally, as long as I can set most of the settings to "high" I consider that high quality. I do not ever consider FSAA to be an in-game quality setting anyways. So for me that is always forced off in every single game new or old. Even if I had SLI GTX580's I wouldn't even use it. FSAA takes away a solid 20 frames in most situations depending on what level used. So for me that is 20 frames that I took away from my gaming experience all because of little jaggies on straight lines that I don't really notice anyways, at least not enough to lose those 20 frames. I said it all along. GTX460 + i5 2500K would = smooth game play in BF3. ANd everyone here laughed at me! Who is laughing now?

    Guess I'm in the 16% that's going to play the game just fine. I already upgraded with BF3 in mind. Now all I need is to upgrade my CPU/RAM/Mobo

    A very low percentile. My guess is 10% will never touch it.

    Though pretty sure that most of us even if we're capable of running max max settings we wouldnt necessarily set them at that, maybe on single player, but there is a majority of people (including me) that when playing a multiplayer game will have a notion of when having the maximum settings may cause some lag at some point. Heck I've even seen people will good specs running a game at mid/standard settings, even pro people playing starcraft at lowest settings in hope that they wont have a single hitch. But hey at least theres a game that can make use of your actual hardware :)
