I will have: Pentium 4 w/ HT 512mb of Dual DDR2 RAM @ 400mhz PCI Express 128mb Radeon x800SE Integrated Dolby sound 80 gig hard drive. Do you guys think that my comp. (that should be arriving soon) will hold BFV with the highest settings and have no lag (including mouse lag)? Thanks for your help.

you should be fine
On the highest settings? No. I have a more powerful system than what you've listed and can't run it on the highest settings. Hell - video alone I have it all on Medium, and am forced to use 800x600 or else I get wicked slowdown. Biggest issues for what you listed: - RAM. Double it. Triple it if you can. - You say P4 w/ HT, but what's the GHz? I'm not sure on integrated sound. I know I dislike it, but haven't seen anything solid on whether it's better/worse than getting a soundcard. I guess a better question would be "Can I play BFV with this?" and the answer is "Yes."
actually onboard sound is crap. because it uses up your system memory(i.e. RAM) so if you have 512, with onboard sound, then no you don't have enough RAM. because if the sound takes up 64 megs. and your OS takes up 16, that is 80 megs away from the minimum 512 the game requires.
Apparently you haven't read the requirements then. The game only requires 256. Look again :eek:
"requires" as in "to make function". Not "requires" as in "the epitomy of our (EA/DICE's) vision". The "Requirements" on the box are BARE minimums... with everything dialed down as low as possible you could theoretically run the game on a system with those specs. Besides "run" is really a loose term. It'd crawl at best on a 933MHz system with 256MB of RAM and a 64MB video card. Check out this as well. The following little excerpt from a PlanetSide review pretty much boils down my point: "Perhaps you've noticed that PC games are now frequently released with both "minimum" and "recommended" system requirements. In this case, the minimum amount of RAM is said to be 256 MB, while the recommended amount of RAM is 512 MB. Well, minimum and recommended be damned, I can tell you for sure that, even on the lowest graphics settings, you won't find this game playable..."
lol, nvm guys... I've talked with ppl now with similar computers and the same g-card.. they had no problems with it all being on the highest settings. They just said upgrade RAM when I can. And they all agree with me... you guys need to be slapped :lol: :nodding:
viralwhiteBFVyou guys need to be slapped :lol: :nodding:
No you need you a** spanked alot:spank: BTW PCI express is avvery fast interface so i think you cna rund it at med/high setting at 60FPS:D I got it running on med. at 1280x960 and get 30fps with my ATI radeon 9000

You wanted our opinion, and you got it. If what people say here doesn't agree with you, then say thank you, walk away and STFU!
Foxtrot: :lol: Anyways, viralwhiteBFV, what these guys are saying is dead on. You'll be able to play the game, but good luck with settings cranked all to high in a multiplayer/online game with any siginificant amount of players on the map. I run most everything on medium at 800x600 and get a pretty decent performance out of the game (similar specs to Padre's). Anything higher and CHOP CHOP BA-CHEWIE CHOP!
