    Well, my 460 is a DX11 card with 1GB, but, it has in parentheses a 560.

    I'm below recommended! :eek:

    Excellent thank you
    i always find it hard to judge wether just plain greed to get a new card and justifying it.I may get a cooler for card and overclock it a bit.

    hoping ill be able to run this on my 460 @ 1920x1080 without upgrading. i left bad company 2 at default graphics settings and it looked really nice and ran at a nice 80-100 fps most times, with it dropping to 50s with alot of action.

    Yep, from DICE, but I've now been through and corrected all the mistakes I could find, which also comically included plenty of 'Radions' as well as 'GHZ' and 'DirextX' - you can all get back on topic now ;-)

    YEAHHHH! I have the recomended stats.

    And if they update it loads I'll just stick in another 560ti!

    Here's hoping a heavily overclocked i3 and a 5770 will pass muster. :blah:

    Woot recommended specs, hopefully that is for all bells and whistles at 1920x1200 so my res might ofset lack of performance.

    The GTX 560 and 6870 are the closest match in performance so why not list it as 560 or 6870? Perhaps they mean the GTX 560 Ti?

    Hey atleast its only 20GB. My WoW installation was taking up 50GB +, I could not believe it. I was wondering where the last of my HDD space went.

    Getting a cooler for a mid/low range card is a waste of money.

    It looks like I won't be getting Battlefield 3 any time soon then. I'm glad I cancelled my pre-order when the EA/Steam handbags came out.

    Good luck, I know mine can't run dx10 games for sh*t and it will look crappy @ minimum settings.

    mine runs DX:HR smoothly on high, Dead Island, Dead Space 2, and even Crysis 2 on med-high.... its the Witcher 2 it has problems....

    ...then again, i only run it at 1680x1050 on my 21" LCD :)

    come on, at least it should run at medium settings :(

    save me $200 for 560 so i can wait at least until Canadian Boxing Day comes Dec26th...

    8800GTX and Core Duo 2 2.4 at 1366 x 768 res.

    Deus Ex runs ok and it has similer specs to BF3.

    Hopefully it runs at some comfortable level!
