Armored Kill really called into perspective just how inferior the console game is to the PC one. Whole chunks are clipped off of maps, you've got 24 player games as opposed to 64 players, and almost every match I feel like i'm playing with packs of worthless incompetents. Not just Battlefield, but all games pale in comparison to the PC master race. This is it. I'm making the jump. I'm building a Computer.
My take is that if a computer can handle BF3, it can hadle most anything else to come for a long while. Ideally, I'd like a setup that can run ultra settings, run a competable frames per second, and cost under 1000 dollars. I've already a keyboard, mouse, speakers and an adequate monitor. It's just the internal components that I need help with. Your fancy shmancy gaming mice and keyboards can come later. What numbers numbers should I shoot for? Can a gaming computer handle general tasks just as well? Is it really worth it?
