Thank you very much for the information Al Hadzi I was just thinking about BF3 the other day if it could run properly on my console and from what I've read in your info I do meet the standard requirement with an 512 MB ATI Graphic card is that fine ? and I do have 4 GB memory in my PC ^^ with enough 500 HHD.... I have installed 7 games in my PC I don't really have an issue with the games so far especially MoH, Assassin Creed 2 & Brotherhood but occasionally Black OPS freezes but it happens very rare. Thank god I'm confident enough now that I can run BF3 in good shape and although I won't be playing too much PC games cause in Christmas I will be getting PS3... :dance:

As we've learned, if you're interested in getting early access to the "Battlefield 3" beta, pre-ordering on EA's Origin is a very good start. But that's not the only place you can pre-order! No siree! Amazon, GameStop and Best Buy each have their own bonuses for pre-ordering "Battlefield 3." But which is the right one for you? Let's see what they're offering.

GAMESTOP

This is probably the most valuable of the pre-order bonuses. Pre-ordering from GameStop nets you the Physical Warfare Pack (yes, that infamous one everyone freaked out about), which includes an exclusive LMG, an exclusive shotgun, a flash suppressor and special ammo.

AMAZON

You get customizable dog tags. 10 of them. Like editing your name plate in "Call of Duty," players will be able to customize their own dog tags in "Battlefield 3." If you pre-order from Amazon you'll have 10 more options than anyone else! Hooray?

BEST BUY

Access to the SPECTAC Kit Upgrade, which amounts to eight multiplayer skins (likely four for each side).

ORIGIN

Comes with free shipping, a shotgun and beret for use in "Battlefield Play4Free," aforementioned early beta access and the Physical Warfare Pack (but only for the PC download version of the game).

Worth noting that pre-ordering anywhere (or getting one of the first-run Limited Edition copies) will net you a free code to download the "Back to Karkland" map pack, which is probably the most valuable asset of the bunch. But, if you had to pick one of the above retailers, it's pretty clear that Origin is your best bet if you're playing on PC, but for console, GameStop is better. Sure, your dog tags won't be quite as unique, but what good is a pretty dog tag if you're shot in the head by a super LMG?

You guy's do know there is no Clean Sweep type mode and the maps are still big? there are some small maps but i will be like BFBC2 but better....

running a new game will never be a problem if the games have been made for consoles,just make sure your Pc is big as the biggest console (like PS3) and you will have no problems, which is why i never worry about running a game when a new game comes out, because my PC is as powerful as a PS3 and some.

Sooooo

it is installed via Origin. First thing I noticed:
Starting BF first starts the Origin client, then opens a webpage.

## First trouble: Flash blocker needed to allow the page. ##

Then you have a serverlist via web, where I can choose + join.

## But: Nearly all server are full! ##

After 10min I spotted one which allowed to join, but joining animation repeats + repeats:

## Message: You need NVIDIA driver above xxx.xx ##

Right now downloading from NVIDIA..... The drivers I use currently where from July....
Well, I think I won't come into a BF server today, will soon visit Socrates, then day is over for me...

cheers
