I've read min req and recommended req... they recommend basically a £200 gfx card.
I'd go with this on a budget MSI ATI Radeon HD 6850 Cyclone Power Edition 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card with FREE Deus Ex PC Game  Should be able to handle it but probably not full settings etc
Doesn't look like I'll be buying BF3 then! Can't justify paying that kind of money, to be honest!
I shall stick to my Steam collection!
So...Far Cry 2 anyone??? LOL!!!
Asus MARS II GeForce GTX 580 X2 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card 
If I was the winner of that Euromillions money, I'd buy 6 of these and SLI them together!
I need to run the GPU utility on that site....
But I'm now away for 5 days! Booooo!!!!
If only I'd realised, I wouldn't have let my gf book us a log cabin!!
higher power consumption under load.
In this first graph, we are comparing the AMD-FX8150 to an Intel Core i7 2600K and 2500K at stock, default settings. There were only very small differences in performance, with the Intel Core i7 2500K delivering the lowest performance, but only by a slim margin. Technically speaking, the Intel Core i7 2600K was 3.8% faster than the AMD FX-8150. However, with differences this small it was not detectable in actual gameplay, and meant nothing to the gaming performance we experience on any of these three CPUs.
Interestingly, when we overclocked the CPUs there was a slight shift with the AMD FX-8150 coming out technically faster. The difference in this case was 5.5%, which again wasn't anything we could actually feel or detect while we were playing the game. When it comes down to it, for the Open Beta, all three CPUs performed similarly, and we couldn't tell any difference between them in this game. If you put all three systems side-by-side, you would not be able to tell the difference. (Source)
yeah i'd still go with intel
i say fckm, i'm not going to buy a new graphics card purely for one game.
if i buy a card and it doesn't play bf3 very well, then i wont play bf3. i'm not going to justify spending out just for one game.
or get an xbox *runs and hides* =D
