Arma is more realistic sure... If I wanted something like that I would have JOINED the military. That game is nothing but marching and dorks thinking they are really into something. First time I played the demo I sat and waited for 20 minutes with 5 other "troops" as we were trying to catch up to the convoy. BOOOOORING!!!

I have ARMA and ARMA2. I will buy the 3rd too. I enjoy it but the gameplay is slow and it is extremely team based and missions are setup much more realistic. On a good machine it looks amazing!
Don't put down the bottle... just tape it to the back of the shield and put a straw in it.  WIN!

I love Arma. More detail in its bootlace than...well yeah. but, gameplay mechanics are different. SIM <> Action Game. Of course BF3 is going to be awesome. I wasn't trying to start a big debate though.
BTW, anyone know the best place to order? I could care less about the Physical Warfare Pack. Thinking origin or amazon.

I also read some tweets like HolyFenix that you'll be able to buy dedicated servers for Bf3 on the 360 like the way you can for Section 8 right now.

So what you guys think about this rig?

AMD phenom 2 x6 1100t 6 core at 3.3 ghz
8 GB ddr3 1066
1 TB sata drive 7200 rpm
Radeon hd 6850 1GB

Good enough for bf3?

I would suggest picking up the i5 2500 instead of the 1100t.   You wont be disappointed.

What about the i7-2600k at 3.4 ghz w liquid cooling and a geforce GTS 450

It's 60$ more than the AMD rig

How's the geforce 450 compare to the 6850?

Around 1100 before taxes...

I can get the exact same rig as the first but with an i5-2500k and the 6850 for 1029$
