I've been playing the Beta since it went public and I'm loving it for the most part. I run the game at 1024x768 with all details set to medium and I get around 25-30 fps in the park. In the subway I get around 40-45 depending if I'm in hallways or not. The game LOOKS great compared to the PS3 beta I tried. I'm just worried I'm going to get horrible FPS during 64 player matches on maps like Caspian Border.

I am using an outdated video card anyways. Is playing at 30fps on the PC going to hinder me? Upgrading my PC isn't an option right now.

8800 GT wont cut it bro.... If u wont upgrade ur video card then just get it for ps3 so you can actually be competitive and kill someone and not die a million times..

If u have $99 laying around u can get a GTS 450, it runs 1360x768 mid/high settings 48-80 FPS depending on were u are at. And also 48-65 in caspian border.

Aren't the consoles capped at 24 players? It's not like if you got it for the ps3 you would be able to play 64 player Caspian anyway. At least with the pc if you can't play 64 immediately you could try to save up and get a better graphics card to play 64. Plus cards are dropping in price all the time.

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

I'm using dual 8800GTs and not having any problems. I'll be upgrading though soon just so I can run it at more appealing graphics.

Hilariously enough, the fact the game is so awesome looking makes it VERY difficult to actually see people.

The core gamer is the bastard child of the casual and hardcore gamer. He invests the former's effort and cries when he doesn't get the latter's results.

I play FPS optimally when the FPS is above 40. Any lower than that, it gets harder to play. I'd suggest you go with the PS3 until you get the chance to upgrade your card (or even CPU). I have both PS3 and PC and i personally think the PS3 version holds up just fine to PC (albeit 24 player cap).
