Since the bf3 ea forums confuse me i'm asking you!

I can't find the make new thread button on that website.... Now TO BUSINESS!

I recently got a new pc and noticed on this website


My graphics card isnt good enough for preferred system needed for bf3.

Not wanting to spend 500 dollars and since there is no demo version of the game can my graphics card handle the game, and play it smoothly? Everything else for my system should work well for the game.

I have a GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card .

Thank you , have a good day.

If it helps I can run skyrim on max everything and it loads really fast and plays very smooth.

My full specs copied off Belarc advisor because I'm not all that good with computers:

Yeah, should be able to run it on high settings in 1080p at about 50-60fps...as long as your processor isn't terrible and you have at least 4GB of RAM.

I have a 570, just a notch higher than the 560TI448core. I'd say it's perfect at med-high settings for multiplayer. High-ultra on singleplayer.

560ti should be fine for med-high singleplayer FPS, and smooth medium FPS (40) for multiplayer.

Just ball-parking though.
