Battlefield 3

EA has revealed some surprisingly reasonable system specs required for the PC version of Battlefield 3. If you've seen the graphics from BF3 you'll know that the game looks absolutely stunning, so it's pretty interesting that the recommended system requirements aren't actually too brutal. Check em out:

RECOMMENDED SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

  • OS: WINDOWS 7 64-BIT
  • PROCESSOR: QUAD-CORE CPU
  • MEMORY: 4 GB
  • HARD DRIVE: 20 GB
  • GRAPHICS CARD: DIRECTX 11 COMPATIBLE WITH 1024 MB RAM (NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 560 OR ATI RADEON (6950)
  • SOUND CARD: DIRECTX COMPATIBLE
  • KEYBOARD AND MOUSE
  • DVD ROM DRIVE

You can find the minimum system requirements after the break.

MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

  • OS: WINDOWS VISTA (SERVICE PACK 2) 32-BIT
  • PROCESSOR: 2 GHZ DUAL CORE (CORE 2 DUO 2.4 GHZ OR ALTHON X2 2.7 GHZ)
  • MEMORY: 2 GB
  • HARD DRIVE: 20 GB
  • GRAPHICS CARD (AMD): DIRECTX 10.1 COMPATIBLE WITH 512 MB RAM (ATI RADEON 3000, 4000, 5000 OR 6000 SERIES, WITH ATI RADEON 3870 OR HIGHER PERFORMANCE)
  • GRAPHICS CARD (NVIDIA): DIRECTX 10.0 COMPATIBLE WITH 512 MB RAM (NVIDIA GEFORCE 8, 9, 200, 300, 400 OR 500 SERIES WITH NVIDIA GEFORCE 8800 GT OR HIGHER PERFORMANCE)
  • SOUND CARD: DIRECTX COMPATIBLE
  • KEYBOARD AND MOUSE
  • DVD ROM DRIVE

I honestly thought that this game was going to be a lot more demanding on my system, so this is pretty cool. I haven't played a PC game since The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings that has shown my gaming PC's full potential, so I'm really happy that I'll get to see BF3 in its full glory when it comes out on October 25. If you can't wait until then to try out the game, keep in mind that the Battlefield 3 beta kicks off on September 29.

If you're a PC gamer can your rig handle the recommended systems requirements for Battlefield 3, or are you going to opt for a console version instead?
