Battlefield 3 System Requirements revealed!
EDIT and Update: System Requirements are now really official revealed: Click here – Battlefield 3 System Requirments
Ok the heading of the blogpost is a lie. In fact the System Requirements for Battlefield 3 aren´t revealed now and that is my problem!
Long time ago I did play Battlefield 2 with all my friends but after that time we had a huge brake with ego shooter´s because we did play World of Warcaft most of our time then.
But few days ago I did get a phone call from one of my old friends and BF2 clan members.. he said “Hey cutie.. did you hear about BF 3 which will be released soon at autumn 2011?”…
He did continue.. “I did speak with all our old clan mates and most of them will play BF 3 because it wont be similar like that crap Bad Company 2.. it will be a real sequel of BF 2 and BF 2142!”
I must admit he infected me with his euphorias about the coming Battlefield 3.
Ok so I checked the internet if there are any System Requirements revealed but in fact they arent revealed yet. All what we know is that it will use the Frostbite 2 Engine.
So now I am not sure what to do.. here is my hardware equipment I use at the moment:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0GHz Dual-Core Prozessor PiB Sockel AM2 2x1024kByte L2-Cache 1000MHz FSB
RAM: Corsair TwinX 2 x 2GB CL5 with 5-5-5-18 XMS DDR2-800 RAM (4gb)
Videocard: NVIDIA GeForce Gainward GTS 250 with 512 mb
Mainboard: Gigabyte M56S-S3
OS: Windows 7
So I am not sure if this will be enough. Should I upgrade to a better videocard? I also could upgrade my 4gb Ram to 8gb Ram? I dont know if those games use 8gb.. Im not sure if this will be an improvement.
If I would need a new CPU.. Then I can buy a new mainboard because I cant use higher CPU`s then this with my mainboard.. Oh and if I would need a new mainboard.. then I also need new DDR3 Ram and that would cost me a lot all together.
So thats why I hope that upgrading will do it! Whats your opinion or suggestion? And what do you think will Battlefield 3 require? I would be happy if you leave a comment here.
EDIT: Since I was able to start the BETA of Battlefield 3, I can tell you that the game works on my system very very well without performance issues. The only change on my system is that I bought a Gainward GTX 570 Phantom. No FPS Problems. BF3 is running smooth on my system.
