Windows 7: New Video Card Recommendations for Battlefield 3

Recommended specs are usually where the game will run the best.

The 560 is faster then the 460, so I wouldn't think it would have any problems at all.

That is of course provided those Specs are still accurate at release.

I thought the suggested machine settings were always to attain smooth gameplay at the highest settings.

Actually, Recommended is more along the lines of moderate versus lowest settings where the Min spec requirements tend to require.

As for the question if the 560 is adequate, remember, the number designations might not necessarily == better card. Otherwise, the older 9800 GTS cards should be 'better' than the 570 or so. nVidia's number and letter scheme is a bit muxed up to know what is 'better' or 'worst' at the moment.

I would be looking at a 570 card...performs as well as if not better than my GTX480,uses less power and is a cooler running card.

It would pay to wait until it's released tho for bench results. Also there are new cards just around the corner so current ATI/NV cards will drop in price after the new ones are released.

When are the new cards due out? My birthday is 2nd week of October, that's when I will be buying. I'm leaning right now towards a 560Ti.

I do not know for sure but ...

Last I heard, around Q4 2011 for the Nvidia 600 (Kepler) Series.
If that still holds true, I would think it would be around Dec.

But acording this, theres rumors of it being pushed back to 2012.

True.

Once upon a time minimum actually meant 'minimum specs' for playability, not to simply get the game running at it's lowest available settings.

Recommended used to be what specs were required for max/smooth gameplay.


Some devs are still pretty accurate with specs while others are very 'generous' with min/rec specs. It's just m,marketing - the lower the specs, the more buyers.

lol, even I'm a bit dubious about the 580 being able to max this

The 560ti should handle high, perhaps with a dash of ultra.

Although in reality, @ 1920x1080, I'd expect to dial down a few key FPS killers like AA, SSAO, post processing etc Effects that also utilise large amounts of VRAM (ie AA) may be a limiting factor with only 1GB.

Overall though, a good balance between IQ and performance should be found.

TSCM, new die shrink for both camps, previous release track record...

Magic 8 ball says initial paper/reviewer launch with no widespread high end availability till March 2012.

Don't held your breath for October.

Sounds like I won't be waiting for the new versions of the cards as I am buying in Oct of 2011...not waiting until 2012.

I think I'm leaning towards that MSI GTX560Ti TwinFrozrII/OC

That card has a good rep (although known to be noisy under heavy load)
