    I can't login to Battlelog at the minute as there's an issue with special characters in passwords.

    Lovely.

    Thanks.
    How you all likeing the game?
    I'm enjoying it quite a lot. There seems to be a fair few bugs, but i've heard the beta is quite an old version so most of these have been fixed already. The only part I dislike and hope they adjust is the sniper scope reflection. It seems to much to me. It makes it fairly obvious where the sniper is compared to other classes which are much more invisable to detection. Do hope this gets changed a bit.

    AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+
    4Gb DDR2 @ 888Mhz (I think)
    Nvidia GTX280

    30th Birthday in march so I think I'll have to wait until then for a cheeky upgrade or even a new rig.

    Just to double check, you are running the beta nvidia drivers?

    This vid shows its possible to play fine with the 280:

    Battlefield 3 Open Beta - Gameplay [GTX 280, Phenom II X6 1055T] - YouTube
    I'm not. Last night though, I did actually download the Beta for one last attempt at BF3 (I tried the alpha and that was painful enough!). It did tell me I had to DL the beta Nvidia drivers but the game loaded anyway and and with all settings on low, it did not actually play too badly. Smother then the Alpha, but still not amazing, and that was on a 32, not 64 man server!

    It's more my CPU that lets me down now rather then the GPU. A cheeky quad core would make play a lot better I think. I'll play the Beta some more and make a judgement call at the end of the week.

    The beta drivers give up to a 38% boost in performance in BF3 btw which is why they are recommending you run them.

    Yeh I never tried with the non beta drivers as they promised a big boost, nvidia just couldnt get whql cert before the beta but the final signed drives should be out before the final game.

    Had my first play the other night, looks pretty good. Bit of a 'richer' feel to it than the last one. Only had about 20 minutes on it, I'll be sure to add in on the platoon.

    Would love to get into the action....

    But my video card is not up to the beating it would take and I'm not likely to have the money to upgrade for a couple of months, at least
