Jun 8th 2011 5:09PM @zero2dash its an ASUS M4A79 Deluxe (AM2+) with a Phenom II 940 at 3.5GHz, 8GB RAM and a pair of ASUS 4870s is Crossfire. so its no slouch. i just have the itch to upgrade since i haven't done anything to it in almost 3 years and my GPUs are 2 generations old. but you're right for all practical purposes its more than adequate.NFS Shift 2 started to stutter on my last night but i know NFS games have a history of not playing nice with AMD/ATi GPUs. Hot Pursuit has weird artifacting and stutters with a lot of cars on screen but my GPU history shows it never went over 60%. weirdness. i'll try Dirt 3 soon to see how well a non-NFS racer performs.i can't seem to find official spec requirements for BF3. all i can find is speculation.
Jun 8th 2011 4:28PM @zero2dash i have 8GB of Kingston HyperX DDR2 1066 (4x2GB dual channel) but it under clocked due to the AMD limitation stuff i was not aware of. hopefully it runs well enough. i'll probably end up building a new system when those AMD FX chips and 7000 series GPUs hit a reasonable price in a year or two. now would be a stupid time to upgrade.
Jun 8th 2011 3:02PM i might have to finally put my HD4870s to rest and get a DX11 card. but then i should get DDR3. but that means i have to get a new motherboard. goddammit i'm going to end up spending like $600 just because of this game.

May 11th 2011 2:14AM the girl freaks me out. is she capable of blinking?
May 10th 2011 12:16AM @PoisonedAl i still don't really see how people are directly comparing these two games
May 10th 2011 12:14AM so this is why they didn't release a demo i suppose. bummer. i really wanted to like this game but it will be a pass.
May 9th 2011 3:07PM @End User i don't know how anyone can claim Brink is a clone of anything. it definitively takes some inspirations from other games but thats to be expected for any game of any genre. looks like one of the more original games i've seen in a while. i'll probably rent it first but if its as good as it looks i will probably buy it.
May 7th 2011 1:17PM $10 credit for Brink also
