How long will my system last before needing an upgrade? Specs are a few pages back.

Your system is better than mine, all depends on your usage.  I'd wait, just until the PC has a clear lead against next gen consoles.

 

FFXV is said to need high end hardware to run on a PC, versus the paltry midrange based Xbox One/PS4.  Interesting how they cope with essentially netbook CPUs!

 

I've seen a lot of next gen titles locked to 60FPS, which would be a godsend to those COD kiddos tongue.gif

How high end, exactly? I must have this game. I simply must...

Should I use 2x MSAA on Battlefield 3.

Msaa is the most ineffective and degrading AA format. If there are other AA options, use those but MS takes huge hits on performance. Because it actually just increases the rendering size and super samples it to a resolution above your screens and then shoves it back onto your screen to make the jaggy lines disapear. Very inefficient as it renders the whole screen.

Ok thanks, but when I go to the BF3 video settings, the game crashes and I'm only running MS because I "optimized" the settings on Nvidia's control panel. Everything is on Ultra though, but thanks again.

Do not use nvidia or amd optomization unless its a known problem for a game to need it.
Those settings in control panel of gpu will often crash games or give lack luster performance as they are forcing settings not supported or runnable by your card. This was a big problem with dead space 2 where people using gpu control panel optomizations were unknowingly getting crashes and schitty fps.

Very pretty though.

 

Personally I prefer:

SGSSAA/TXAA > MXAA/CSAA > Everything else. FXAA and SMAA suck hard.

Most likely an Intel i5-2500K / 9+GB RAM (OS overhead) / AMD 7970

 

If there's enough demand for a PC release, we'll likely get a port biggrin.gif

PCs are nowhere near as optimized for games when compared to consoles.  We need time to catch up in terms of performance biggrin.gif

 

PCs have the grunt, but software development is much too generic for obvious reasons.

I would say that its games being optomized for conses is the way why

I'm not able to change the video settings on BF3, it always crashes when I get to the video settings. Is there anyway to bypass that?

So... I bought a laptop to replace my netbook just because I found it at a good price:

 

Gateway NV52L23u

 

It seems I might be able to play some of the Steam games I have here!!! ;)
