About to buy this build. Will it run BF3 highest settings?


Sep 14, 2011
Hi all. I just want to start off by saying I'm a total noob at this building thing. This is the build that I'm ready to jump on and just wanted to confirm if it will run BF3 (hopefully on the highest settings).

I'm really interested in your feedback, particularly whether I'm missing something important and where this could use improvement. Thanks!

No way will you get BF3 on the highest settings maybe with a lower res but definatley not on the native resoulution of the monitor. More wattage power supply, can always get a better deal on ram, and the proccesor wait if your going amd to see if bulldozer is going to be any good and see if the price of the one you have will drop. Otherwise it is a decent build but stick with the monitor
