Windows 7: Battlefield 3 on my rig?

Battlefield 3 on my rig?

How well will my rig work with higher settings? Hope my computer specs are saved, on my iPhone at the moment. Just wondering before I purchase?

Also, how well with my Internet for online play?
-2mb/s down
-0.6mb/s up
-local ping at 77ms and California at 170ms... I live in Alaska. Internet is slow and expensive here.

Sorry for minimal details... Thanks in advance.

I don't forsee you having much trouble.

But my computer specifications don't meet the recommended specifications. Also, my Internet may not perform well either, which is what I'm more afraid of.

You are above the minimum specs, but under the recommended specs on your video card. I expect you will be able to play on medium to high without trouble. Prior to buying my GTX 570, I was using an Nvidia 9800GTX+ and was able to play at low resolutions at 1920x1080 and it was alright. I have no problem playing high to ultra with my 570. I expect with your 480, you will be able to play medium to high.

I think your inet will be fine. While I have 15Mbit downloads...it doesn't use much of it. I have 1Mbit on my uploads...so just a little bit more than you.

It's my latency I'm worried about. I live up in Alaska and the PING is a little higher than most of you down in the lower 48 states.

I had a rare 9800GT, with 1GB GDDR3 VRAM that ran Crysis on nearly highest details with 20 - 25 fps, with a damaged Intel 2.4GHz Quad Core processor. My GeForce 460 GTX-SE is about 3 times the performance of my 9800GT. However, Crysis I don't think is graphically intense as BF3, so I'm not sure how well my current card will hold up. But I'll report back here tomorrow, I'm currently downling 5GB of updates for BF3. Yes, I did purchase it.

Your gtx 460 should have no problems what so ever running bf3,probably will run best at high settings and could probably do ultra at 30+ fps but will most likely get higher fps on High.Have a friend with a similar setup expect he has a phenom ii x6 1090T but with the same video card and says he gets around 45-54 on high and 36-42 ultra on average on his setup.The internet connection you have will most likely have latency issues but I would try to get on severs under the 200ping at least if you can or at least be something around close to 200 or lower if you can't get any better pings.

I've tested it on ultra high settings, and it's completely lag free... My GTX 460-SE is slaughtering the graphics. So you guys were correct on that. However, that may not be so during online play, where I heard it requires more hardware resources. I have yet to try that. Also need to test my internets latency. Lowest PING I found was 66ms, but no players in it. 66ms may be playable?

yeah 66 is very playable,it starts geting unplayable when you start passing the 200 ping mark,feels like your a second late at least to me.Some people say they can play fine like that but for me no more then 200 ping, I prefer my ping at least 150 or lower. 200ping is the farthest I'll go on playing on a sever for connections but that's just me.

At high settings you WILL have problems,not enough Video Ram for starters. This game is demanding at best and you will need a higher specced system to run it with all the eye candy maxed.

Your ping times are fine so your net is not an issue.

Also, bear in mind that the visual differences between Medium, High and Ultra are very, very subtle and unnoticeable by most people while actually playing the game. I ALWAYS crank my graphics down a tad, even if I can max it all out, just to ensure that FPS stay high during gameplay. I'm not bothered if the water tower way off in the distance has a few jaggies..since I am not looking there, but rather directly at what is around me.
