    Just so that you know. You will need 2 GTX 580's in SLI Mode to run this game on ultra high.

    Yay, I got the early beta invite too! I'm so excited, I'm going to install it while I'm at school because it's going to take forever to download 2.something gigs. I have an 8800GT, a quad core, 4 gigs of ram, and REALLY, REALLY NICE ZIP-TIES HOLDING MY CABLES TOGETHER. Not that that matters or anything... :/

    I've been playing it for the past 3 hours. Here are some things that I noticed that are horrible about the game.

    There is NO main menu. The game launches through origin and your stats, server browsing, etc is done through your web browser (Firefox, Chrome, etc.).

    To join a server, Origin directs u to the BF3 website and has u pick a server or quick match. At the moment, they are all full and finding one is tough, I'm afraid to see what open beta will yeild.

    > Just so that you know. You will need 2 GTX 580's in SLI Mode to run this game on ultra high.

    Not entirely true, that statement came from DICE during Alpha stages of the game, but from what I've seen I can tell you that a single 580 will do just fine. Those that played Alpha will notice a huge improvement. The game ran at a solid 60fps for me on HIGH settings, not on Ultra though. I dropped to 45 - 50 FPS during major explosions (a tunnel blows up and smoke covers half of the map).

    Now as for settings, Ultra settings are nothing more than extra AA. I compared the settings and the difference between High and Ultra is Ultra has the highest level of AA, Motion Blur, and pretty much all that useless crap. However, I can't stand motion blur to the point that it blinds me so I don't mind having it off.

    I'm running the game an ATI Radeon HD 6870, Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHz (4CPUs), 4GB DDR3 16000 RAM to achieve those settings. Looking at your set up, expect to run the game on all low.

    Keep in mind that the map is a rush mode map, not a lot to go by, but I have seen 32 player battles, still have to get a look at vehicle warfare on a 64 player map but I do expect the major performance buckling to come from that. The game is also way better than BC2.

    Classes are now Medic, Engineer, Recon, and Support. Engineer and Recon are the same, Medics now use assault rifles and support is the Assault class of BC2 but with LMGs. It is possible to go prone, bipods are a must to use with LMGs, recoil will murder you, and the hitboxes don't seem to suck either. Another thing that wow'd me was how I saw a sniper across the map because his scope had a glare on it, not as easy to camp now.

    I pre-ordered the Medal of Honor Limited Edition way back when it came out, and I still haven't gotten an email.

    I've played it online and everything, unless there was some kind of secret rain dance I was supposed to do that now I'm too late and have to wait till Thursday?

    I want my fucking early access.

    Ah thanks for letting me know this Reaper. I only know what I've read as I haven't played the Alpha. But none the less this is good news.

    I was expecting the same when I launched it. Was very surprised when the game was on High by default and running at 60 FPS. I just went to take a peek at the exact differences and the only difference if anything is High has no AA, Ultra has full AA and full Motion Blur.

    I put em both on and the FPS loss was roughly 20 - 30, but saw no difference. Honestly, the game looks like it does have AA even when it's off. I'm also using the new drivers that ATI released for the beta, Nvidia released some drivers too.

    So I can assure those who were afraid of some of the things you heard, if you can run BC2 on Max, you can run this game on medium or high.

    Well that's good enough for me. Now I don't have to go forking out for 2 graphics cards. As long as its got a good FPS rate I'll be happy, but from what your saying I'm sure I'll get that. Oh and thanks again reaper for enlightening me on the subject.

    You need to have friends on Battlelog, then you make a party with your friends and join server as party.
    However party system doesn't work well right now.

    Very annoyed with EA's customer service. I was expecting a beta key and didn't arrive, waited 45 minutes for an adviser to be told there weren't any avaliable, sent an email with the promise of a reply within 24 hours, and still nothing. I guess it's pointless now, seeing as it goes open tomorrow, but how can they get it THAT wrong?

    You can play it, it is just a matter of how high of settings. based on your settings I really don't see you playing on anything but minimal settings, and I really recommend you buy a whole new rig. Especially since BF3 is going to set a trend for games coming out in the next 3-4+ years.

    I played a fuckton of the Open Beta today.
    There are bugs obviously, but that's to be expected with a Beta.
    The game is really good, the sounds,animations and shit are all amazing. Hitboxes are way better than BC2 and such.
    I have a GTX460 and I'm playing it on Ultra, though I've only tried it on rush so not sure if I'll be able to do ultra on a conquest map.

    Even though I like this game a lot so far, there is one thing that will stop me from buying it if they don't improve it. The Battlelog. The idea isn't bad, I like the battlelog infact, but like 60% of the time it is a massive challenge to get the game to start for me. It will just be stuck on connecting to server no matter how many times I try. I was stuck for like 15 minutes before just trying over and over again before it finally let me in.

    Played it for 5 hours now ca. 2-3 of those with a friend, while talking over Skype.

    I got one thing to say: I'm in love.

    Having a friend to talk to directly makes it so much more immersive, haha.

    Still waiting to buy my new graphics card; my 8800 is bottlenecking my computer hardcore, so I can only run it on low, with tons of lag. But holy shit, I can deal with the lag if it means getting to play this game. There are only a few things I'm not - wait, I'm liking everything.

    I just bought my new GTX 560 which should be getting here soon. I've managed to play it with my 9600 but framerate is obviously lacking, so I don't get to enjoy it as much as I would be able to if I had a better card.

    I also managed to sneak onto one of the Caspian Border servers when the password was Appletini (dunno if it still is)

    Even though I was only in there for 5 minutes before it crashed, it was still fucking awesome watching the jets flying around and shit. Very epic.

    Over all Im really liking the beta so far. Gun designs are a bit odd, especially the textures (wats with the yellow grime?) the player models look great, unique and refreshing. The assault player model class totally reminds me of the cod4 assault class, which brought back memories. But im not feeling the "battlefield vibe" with this game. It feels and plays to much like medal of honor in the wrong ways. I was expecting this but I was hoping i was wrong...

    The infantry combat doesn't feel right in operation metro. The Russian faction and marine faction seem old and over-used. Plus why are the marines wearing desert BDU's and not woodland for this map? doesnt that seem odd to anyone? The squad system i found isnt very effective and there's no classic voice commands! Anyways Im looking forward to the final product but i really wish dice rethinks there take on detail to realism and environments.

    also i noticed there is NO blood.....isnt this game rated Mature?

    This. I'm playing with a group of 3 other friends, and it's so awesome with coordination and such, each of us taking a different class. Really enjoying the beta so far, but I feel like they should've had a map with vehicles included from the start.

    Can't bloody activate the beta yet "/. downloaded it last night and tried to play, sent me to a website telling me to login then saying I'm not allowed to... no other reason. Not sure if its because servers are full or that EA hates me... D:

    the only blood iv seen is the small red blur effect on the edge of screen when you take damage. im sure thats not even blood.

    but in any case, wats the point of this game being rated M? did they really need to use explicit language in the radio com's.........? id take seeing blood over hearing the F word on the com's.

    i guess dice dident want to go over realistic with the gibs and gore but went over realistic with the buildings. even though medal of honor had the right amount of gore......strange world we live in.

    Origin is shit though. It's a polished up EADM nothing more than that. At least it works on Windows 7 where EADM had issues in that regard. BattleLog is flat out irritating to use and the fact that I can only change the settings when I'm in game and you must be spawned is retarded. Other than that, I've had fun with it. Going to install the newer drivers. I run the game on medium with my GTX285 and I'm considering upgrading.

    This. The amount of blood is small, most noticeable when you shoot somebody when they are up against a wall; but it's not like I'm going to stop in the middle of a firefight to look at the blood.

    I bought a new pc and its godlike! a gtx 590, 6gb ram and intel i5 and I bought the medal of honor limited edition with the bf3 beta and i must say theres nothing special running in ultra settings why? because its just had better anti lasting and motion blur which is useless running on high is just perfect im running at 720p which is still awesome tho but fucking origin sucks d*ck a steam release would be better!

    I know this feeling ^^ But i was using voice party chat off the actual battlelog page! At the bottom right you can select voice party, and then change your mic settings to voice activation :3

    The game itself is brilliant - I love the glare off sniper scopes, as well as blinding from flashlights in dark areas! The shooting through certain walls is cool, except there are some floor holes which make you fall through the map - They may have fixed this now?

    No vehicles was a let down to be honest, however it keeps you wanting to know how good it would be with vehicles :)

    I'm also running on recommended at 60fps all high with a 560Ti card, 8GB ram and a Q6600 2.4 quad cpu :)

    One other thing - When you start playing, make sure you turn Vertical Sync on as it is OFF as default - Looks so much better with it on :)

    Well you don't have to, but it makes it a lot smoother as you turn - Otherwise you'll see 'tearing' (lines from where previous frames have been) as you turn. It basically blurs it to make it look more appealing to the eye :)
