    I got a 550ti for about £100, seems to do the job. Shot my self in the foot a little as I had a GTX295 before and it was about 200% quicker -_- nevermind! The 460 is still good for its money, even more so when you sli a pair of them. Quicker than some of the 580's even!

    I just purchased a new PNY Geforce GTS 450 this weekend in an attempt to play battlfield 3 on a proper machine (not my ps3 or xbox) I had been rocking my old 9800GT for about 4 years on an old rig and never upgraded it when I built a new system last year -_-

    Barely anything really. If I'm in a really geeky mood on theW/E (and if I CBA), I may roll back my graphics drivers and load up Fraps to see my FPS, then upgrade top the beta drivers again and then compare. But I really think I've got an extra 2/3 FPS?

    Well, I had an epic session last night! Gained a fair few kills, a few unlocks and so far, I'm really loving it despite all settings are on low! However, the wife said that for my crimbo present this year, she will contribute towards a hardware bundle upgrade! I think this is awesome, however she thinks it's a rubbish gift! However, for me, CPU, Mobo & RAM > Socks & Kecks!!!

    Anyway, back on topic, I have a few questions that you al may be able to answer:

    1. Stats - Are they going to be reset on release date, or will they roll on into the full game?
    2. Platoons - Any benefit in being one apart from seeing games peeps are in and global Platoon stats?
    3. @ZeroHour - How long have you been playing to get to lvl 34/35?! And how have you found time to do so!!!
    4. Does anyone else "giggle with excitement" when they ump over items and see their legs swing around?

    Hehe I am only lvl 25, I found it pretty easy tbh when you know how the dynamics of BF games work with upgrades
    Stats will be reset, platoons have not been fully fleshed out yet so I expect extra features to be added but for now it makes a simple list to find other geekers
    I love the way the game works but a trick for you all, dont run up to the object and hit space, try and jump just before and I have found I can jump over the bar etc without the legs animation delay but that may be a bug.

    Deffo a bug. I went on a server that was in Japan and could literally lag myself under the map for large portions of the game.

    Well I'm happy to pump some money into the endeavour seeing as you have to rent from a legit supplier and can get us 10% off with gamingdeluxe.co.uk

    Not put many hours in yet but will get some in over the weekend, had a few glitchs including falling under the map, bushs starting to stretch across paths which was amusing, that was on the ps3 version.
    My new graphics card is no where near the recommended requirements by nvidia lol the minimum recommendations start at around £250! Still running it all on high without too much framerate drop!
