I would be willing to build a computer but I am in college and don't have the money to, its not necessarily the smartest thing to do right now. What I have is what I have. And yes my mistake I do mean an SSD. I don't need to run the game on Ultra or High. Medium is fine for me, just want to game again on a PC cause I miss it. Having a controller really takes away a major aspect of a game like bf when it is a game built for pc. I do undersand my computer will get hot, however I do have external fans to cool it down if that is any help. Not the best with computers compared to others.


And I do appreciate the responses!

I wouldn't touch this with a laptop. My Mac Pro would go nuclear if I didn't turn my fans up. Not macBOOK pro... MAC PRO. A laptop would melt after 15 minutes.

I want to get this game but don't really want to buy a PS4 or build a new computer.
Anyone getting this for PS3? Is it even worth it?

And the whole keyboard/mouse thing. But seriously mouse makes you pretty damn reactive

Re: Battlefield 4

I'm thinking i may add another video card for SLI. I have a 660ti right now which can't run it on ultra at a good enough frame rate. Things get pretty choppy. The 2560x1440 monitor may have something to do with that.

I've got a water cooler on the CPU too, may have to crank up the clock speeds there some more also

We'll see how the beta goes first coming up pretty soon.

Tried out the beta today on PC and it seemed to play almost the same as BF3. It's not really too graphically intense as my 650ti can play on average about 25fps on ultra, 30fps on high and 40-50 on medium

Been playing the beta. Very very nice. The change in the selection screens is great. Only thing that sucks is I can only play it without lag on medium graphics :/

I think it's the beta drivers. I am running Quad SLI 690's and I need to put the graphics on medium to run smoothly. Ultra is fine, but at times I get 20-30 FPS. Supposedly, if you are running an AMD video card it is even worse.


Game play is good, but for some reason I feel like every gun shoots like a laser beam. I went back to BF3 right after and I could tell the recoil difference from the first burst.
