I don't know why this is a question.

PC without a doubt.

For sure.

I heard this game has TERRIBLE performance on consoles. And from what I've seen what they say is true. Screen Tearing, frame drops to like 10 FPS. NOPE.

Your PC will be more than enough to run it well.

could anyone actually make a legit argument against the PC version? especially when u have that rig? I mean common... the ps3 version must be lauaghable in comparason.

And do you think if you rig didn't run it at high or ultra, the PS3 would? You would be lucky to see it on "medium" on a console.

the consoles have sections that drop as low as 15fps... and screen tear everywhere. "Our footage starts off at an unprecedented low during the cut-scene with Vaas, for which we record a remarkably sluggish 15FPS on PS3 - a surprise considering how little is being rendered at the time. This is compared to 20FPS on 360 in matching footage, which later proves to be the running standard for every subsequent cut-scene on either platform." they're also stripped resolutions too. 360 version runs at 1280x704. PS3 - 1274x702. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-far-cry-3-face-off

Even if you could only play the game at 720P and 30 fps and medium settings it would still be better than the PS3 version. So, no don't get the PS3 version, it's more expensive anyway.

Get it for PC. With that rig of yours you can get away with high-ultra.

The question you are asking is, Would I like to play the game in Direct X 9 or Direct X 11. And with a m/kb or a controller? Answer for yourself.

I haven't seen the console versions, but if you guys want to, check out my FC3 screenshots in the screenshot thread on the PC games board. Thats what minimum settings, 1280x720, SSAO=0 MSAA=4 looks like. That runs at a constant 30+ fps (with spikes into the 50s) on my laptop, which has a dual core i5 2.27ghz, 4gigs RAM, and an HD4670 1gb.

Edit: I'll repost a couple of those shots here.

Does the TC just make a new thread for everything that crosses his mind or what? Can you not make a decision on your own or something? Posted those specs like over 5 times and asked really pointless questions, I mean come on.
