    I'll be very surprised if you need 2 580's to run 1080p ultra

    People complained when Crysis 2 wasn't kicking their PC in the nuts. Hopefully this will cheer them up :)

    Ah well my 480 with overclock wont be playing this at highest settings then. That's rather frustrating..suppose we will see when the beta is released on 27th.

    He's right in that Recommended does usually mean medium or high, but never "ultra". That's something that's always bugged me a little.
    It'll run well enough & I'm sure I'll revisit it at some point in the future when I have upgraded. But there's nothing else out there that I can't max out with one 580. I wouldn't upgrade right away for any one game, no one title justifies a £400 pricetag. But it's good to have a game that's futureproof.

    Pah, I hardly reach the minimum settings, let alone the ones for Ultra. I guess I'll have to pass, or get it on 360 if the console port is any good.

    Given than SLI sucks, does this mean nothing can run BF3 on ultra at 1080p?

    i hope it shows off some cool stuff on my Quad core AMD with GTX460. It could run crysis 2 wth all settings high in HD res.

    I call BS, there obviously asked/paid to say that from nvidea.
    I bet a single 580 could max it at 1080, and i bet my crossfire can at 1920x1200.

    upgrading in anticipation seems foolish, wait and see guys!

    What kind of idiot recommends playing a games at levels that are much less than its best? With that kind of attitude, he could have sated a fortune not developing higher settings for the game.
