Watching that montage makes me so jealous.  That's exactly how I use to play BF2 on PC.

See how he switches from knifing an enemy to using their weapons? It's not possible on console.

The kit switching is so fluid on PC and so slow and glitchy on 360.  I try to pick up kits on the fly like that in tight situations and it will either ignore me and not pick it up at all or it will pick it up and take a couple seconds to fire the weapon and by then it's too late.

By the time I switch kits and am able to fire on xbox,  I could have picked up a fallen medic's kit, revived my teammate and began fighting enemies on PC.

I definitely need to get back to PC. :(

CPU was the bottleneck for Frostbite 1.5 in BFBC2.

ATM, I can run 60FPS no issues with I7 [email protected] Quad Core with GTX480. Max Settings
30FPS with Fraps.

Overclocked at 3.2Ghz, I can fraps at 60FPS at Max Settings

My AMD Althon 6400+ Overclocked at 3.3Ghz Dual Core was suffering at 30FPS on Low settings with SLI 8800GTS

Same FPS when I popped in my GTX480 in to my AMD rig but was able to up it to Medium settings.

Honestly, reading this further justifies why I don't game on PC. Money is certainly not my barrier. I simply can't get any enjoyment out of or support any gaming experience that would require this level involvement to get the most out of it.

Kind of ironic though? What have you done to be able to enjoy a level of game play on the xbox360? Not that I am disrespecting it, but I think you have put a little more effort into what you have done, than simple computer upkeep. I snickered a bit. But hey, I am exited to try out a Xim 3 and all the effort put into it, soon enough.

I can suffer sh1tter graphics on xbox but what is going to nark me on this game is the lower player cap.  Its going to be a dual buy for me even though most of my pals have fully migrated to console.

Pre-Ordered both PC and Console already, realistically I see myself playing PC much more often. 360 will only be when my friends wanna play.

Speaking of glitchy. Remember when kit switching was outright broken for about three years in BF2? Half the time you'd pick up a kit in the heat of the moment you would CTD.

Yeah, I ended up making my desktop a different random nude hot chick in order to soften the rage when I CTD'd, it was a hard habit to break.

Can't count how many times I hit the "pick-up kit" button ( I think it was 'G') and yelled "@#$% ME!" at the same time because I knew I was about to on desktop. 

BF2 was so amazing though I really don't remember a lot of the glitches.

LOL, wish I had thought of that. 1.3 introduced a lot of bad glitches and issues but with 1.4 the kit to desktop was pretty much the only really bad one left.

PC gaming right now is probably cheaper than it has ever been. You can spend $500 on a gaming PC that will max out just about any game out there, or at least play on High.

The price to performance ratio for GPUs is better than I can ever remember. You can spend less than $200 on a GTX 460 or HD 6870 and have a a card good enough to play anything out on at least High settings.

There are 3 year old cards that can still play newer games without any problems because graphics have advanced so slowly over the past few years.

Yeah, but when people talk about the PC experience they're not talking about a "good enough" $500 PC. They're talking about high end hardware. Because at $400 with an XBOX and Xim 3 you get a "good enough" PC like experience without the massive amount of hassle.

Personally, with a Xim and Xbox 360 combo I thought that PC gaming was pretty much worthless for the past few years. But games are starting to look, perform, and set themselves apart enough that the upcoming round of PC hardware is probably worth investing in despite all the shittiness that comes along with PC gaming. My threshold is, if you can run BF3 maxed at a steady 90 fps then I'm definitely getting a new PC.

Why 90?

Dont worry I'm not going to follow up your response with why I think you're wrong just interested as to the specific figure. I always disliked CSS on less then 100 FPS with my CRT.

I think this has the potential to equal COD Black Ops in sales as long as they do their marketing right. At least I hope.

Personally I think that initial sales will easily rival Black Ops, its after its been out for a bit that I am not as sure. Most because the game will (hopefully) not be as kid/noob friendly. So children wont buy it, hopefully this is replaced by a slightly older generation i.e. late teens and 20's and 30's
