Yeah I fucking want. Battlefield is pretty much the only modern shooter I can get behind.

Too bad ping and server issues have not been resolved.

Should shit on MW3 though, looks good enough single player. Will scene.

Too bad where you live, you will never get that in a FPS game until they upgrade/update. Even Orcon is shit from what I've heard.

You should try Maxnet, costly though.

cable. fiber. other options out there other than adsl ;)


Indeed. However unless your with Maxnet ATM AFAIK, your traffic routing to servers is quite limited with more bigger companies IE Telecom/Orcon etc.

It is good having Fibre and 22 down. Strange I only get 1 up though, thought their would of been some leeway in the matter.

Yea but most the time to get them to change it if it is a individual they wont. Need a group effort aye.

Picked up Mirror's Edge for $2.50 US on Steam over the weekend as a bench mark. Runs smooth as, as long as nothing is happening. Got in a gun fight, was dropping frames all over the show - eventually crashed. That said, MOH and BFBC2 run fine.. So I'm a little weirded out.

Am picking it up on 360 foremost anyway- Battlefield is mine and my mate's bromance game, and he doesn't have a decent rig..

Open Beta on September 29

Edit: More info:
If you pre-order the PC digitial version of Battlefield 3 on EA's Origin store before Sept. 25, or if you bought Medal of Honor: Limited Edition/Tier 1 Edition, you will get 48 hours early access to the Beta, meaning you can start playing Tuesday, Sept 27.

Hate to sound like a computer dad, but you should always invest in a sensible PSU.

Do you really need 8GB RAM? Could you buy half now, and half later? Can't see anything else there you'd want to skimp on. Anything you can cannibalise from old machines? DVDR/W?

Actually, yeah, yeah it is. I didn't even see the price before. I think I'm going to go buy some RAM now.

What I really need though, is a decent CPU cooler - any trusted brands/models I should be looking into? $$figures I should be spending no more than? I have a phenom X2 that can turn into an X4 - but I want to cool it and underclock it a little before I do..
