    You told people it would max it out at 60fps, you even told someone to buy a 460 he would be able to max it out(not even thinking that maybe not all 460's can reach the oc yours has)

    It's ok now saying you count high with some stuff disabled at maxed but most other people don't (I still think it will struggle although your lower than 1920 res will help)



    Although I think this entire article is mostly guess work.

    Same here, I only turn on FSAA if I truly have way to much fps left over. I'm more interested in having a crisp game with nice textures and effects. AF takes way less of a performance hit these days and is one of the things I do enable.


    Made me lol, but it's one of the things that pisses me off, so I might end up tweaking it so I can at least have texture detail maxed out.

    Agreed. I also use 16X AF forced in NVCP.

    I hope to get 40-50 fps on medium settings with no AA at 1080p ...
    I will succeed? I'll see him soon! ;P

    Got my GTX 580 lightning and 2600K incoming. I will be ready no matter what:D.
    The hype over this game has gotten really crazy, you don't hear sh!t anymore about the cod game.

    I will be playing both, Cod (singleplayer only) first and bf3 after. I don't think I can look at cod's graphics anymore after launching bf3.

    Chart is crap, comparing a GTX 460 to a 5830 is hilarious. Also, I'm sure the same percentage of gamers doesn't meet the requirements for Bad Company 2 either.

    I either barely meet or barely don't meet the requirements. If DX11 is a must for the "recommended requirements" then I don't, but otherwise my video card is on par with a GTX 460 performance wise and then I barely do meet them.

    The chart is misleading, the 460 = 560 so move it to that spot on the chart. Why it's paired with the 5830 I have no idea, unless they mean the slower SE but even then I doubt it.

    Im guessing they mean a 560ti as they are quite a bit better than a 460.

    on the other hand a 560 non ti IS a 460 just overclocked.

    Maybe i am missing something.. but the LT G35 HS is USB :3eye:

    anyway.. onboard sound is not that bad, i also have a THX USB audio thingy that i use with my headphones and i cant tell any diff.

    The USB THX is louder as it has a better amp than the onboard
