Mines not, balls...

What have you got? Cos mine runs it with a 9800GTX and Duccy has been running it with a 8800 GT...

Proper old cards by todays standards.

460 gtx, says it doesnt meet the requirements, but im sure ill be fine..

well i was thinking of getting it but apparantly my ATI radeon HD 5450 isnt good enough so stuff it then.:(
i'll stick to playing PES2011 ;)

For me it says i don't have sufficient GPU (ATI 5770) but what i've played the beta, it's fine. And as said, Duccy's 8800GT even runs it.

Low graph settings. Doesnt run on medium... But am getting hits on this game compared to BC2 when all my shooting was just random luck. So they have done good job with this game.

I have a 460 gtx and runs fine. The test is bull shite

Well it says my GTX 460 doesn't meet the requirements. What this smacks of is BUY OUR FUCKING CARDS AS WE NEED THE MONEY!!!

I've been playing the game in Ultra settings at 1680x1050 with the odd problem but nothing to in contrast to spending 200 quid plus on a video card!!!. Sounds like their util is talking utter shite!!!

I have a new mobo ( second one in 6 mths ) and more RAM.

with a Asus Maximus 4 extreme Z ( Z68 ) ( one of the best mobo Asus make )
16 gb of RAM
an I7 Sandybridge
and GTX285 in Sli

I do have to amend my above post.

I came back from France yesterday and so installed the game this morning and played a little of the campaign mode.

And my comp really didnt like it when I put all the settings up to ultra high, the game play became choppy.

So only way round is to turn the settings down :( I am not a happy bunny at having to do that.

Well my sound card and free disc space scraped through! I knew my machine was a bit old but I only bought the graphics card a month ago! Never mind, selling stuff on Ebay now, hopefully this time next week will have a new phenom 6 core bundle!

Not sure how but I'm getting playable frame rates with medium settings on my 8800 GT Overclocked.

Your PC's NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 is below the game's recommended specifications.

The recommended GPU to enjoy Battlefield 3 is a GeForce GTX 560 or higher (the minimum specification is a GeForce 8800/9800 GT)

Well that's the house PC ruled out then :(
Now to try the laptop!

Scaley we know that is bollocks, i got GTX 460 and Jnr has a GT 9800 and it plays fine on hs computer, with no problems at all
